Joint Custody: Sharing Your Children’s Important Information Divorce can wreak havoc on any family. All of a sudden all of your lives are different and the future is sure to be uncertain and scary for everyone. Making the children a priority during a divorce is the best way to protect them during this tough process. Routine is one of the best ways to get kids accustomed to their new schedules and even new homes. In the case of joint custody, your children will have to get used to living at two homes instead of just one. Even your Family Law attorney will tell you that this can be a tough adjustment for everyone and that setting up a schedule and similar routine in both places can ease the process for many families. For parents, keeping your children in the forefront of your minds, having a routine of civil communication is vital. Documentation and schedules should be accessible to both parents at all times. Take a look at some of the following tips to help get your kids organized for living in two homes. Monthly Activities Schedule In a divorced family, the weekly schedule can become pretty complex. Both homes should have a complete schedule of all school activities, sports teams, lessons and holidays. You never want to end up being late for a game or forgetting to pick someone up at their piano lessons. With a matching schedule, both parents can stay up to date on what is going on. Make arrangements as to who will be taking the kids to activities and school so that you can establish a set schedule that’s easy for everyone to follow. Birth Certificate The original copy of all of your children’s birth certificates should remain in the primary household. However, a photocopied version should be kept in the secondary household as well. Both parents should have access to this information in case of emergency. For extra assurance, you can have the copied document stamped by a notary for authenticity issues. Medical Insurance All medical histories and insurance information should be available in both households. Accidents or illness can strike at any time and you don’t want to have to waste time tracking down their important medical paperwork. Allergy Information If your child has any allergies, a full list of dangerous items or foods should be in both homes. Allergy medications or emergency shots should also be in both places. School Info A full list of your children’s school information should be shared between both parents. Teachers’ names, grades and contact information should be included in the list. Doctor’s Information The name and contact information for your child’s pediatrician and any specialists needs to be shared. Hours of business, alternate clinic addresses and doctor details should be included. Medications List Any kind of medication that your kids are on, even if it’s occasional, should be shared on a proper list between parents. Asthma inhalers, allergy medications and any prescription medication should be included and updated whenever there is something new added.
