When you and your former spouse decided to divorce, you no doubt understood that your decision would prompt changes in your own lives as well as your children's. There's a lot more to legally ending a marriage in a Colorado court than signing a few papers and moving on in life. The in-between can be quite stressful, especially if you and your ex have a contentious relationship.
There are several things to keep in mind that can help you keep stress to a minimum in your co-parenting interactions. First and foremost is to remember that you may no longer desire to be spouses, but you will always be parents together. Appreciating each other for the roles you play in your children's lives helps lay the groundwork for peaceful co-parenting.
