Going through a divorce is hard for anyone. Especially in cases where you and your spouse can't seem to see eye-to-eye, the stress can feel unbearable. This said, even in cases where everything is going amicably, you will no doubt still have questions and concerns about just how assets are going to be divided among two people.

One thing that can help reduce the overall stress - and simply get a handle on what is even out there to divide - is to create a checklist.

Your parenting plan is a flexible document for you and your child's other parent to put in place agreements for how you'll raise your child - or children - together. Having a solid parenting plan helps to ensure you are both on the same page and will hopefully reduce the chances of having serious disagreements over parenting choices later on down the road.

Aside from the usual things, like how you will organize your child's living arrangements, how to organize pickups and drop-offs and visitation schedules, there are two other topics you will also want to include.

For many couples heading into a divorce, there are two major points of contention. The first and often most emotional issue will be custody and support of any minor children from the marriage. The second issue, which can also become quite contentious, is how to fairly divide assets between spouses. In cases with a prenuptial agreement, asset division can prove easier.

One of the few constants in life is change. You may have felt like you understood your situation in life and your future trajectory when you went through your divorce. However, now things are different. Perhaps you lost your job and can't seem to find another that pays as well. Or maybe you've just made a change in your career path, deciding to follow your passion over higher pay. Whatever the reason is, there are many circumstances in life that can lead to a change in your earnings.

There are many possible reasons why your current child support or child custody order from your divorce is no longer optimal for your situation. If you've reached a point in your life where the amount of support ordered no longer matches your income or where increased time with your children would be in their best interests, it may be time to seek a modification of the initial order from the courts.

When going through the divorce process, you never want to lose sight of the well-being of your child or children.

If you're dealing with a custody dispute and hoping to find a resolution through mediation, it won't be long before you turn your attention to the creation of a parenting agreement.

There is no guarantee that you will be able to work things out with your former spouse, but it's important to realize that the creation of a parenting agreement could go a long way in giving you peace of mind now and in the future.
