When you first got married, there was probably nothing more important to you than your life with your new spouse. As time passed, children came and your new family became the focus of all your thoughts and efforts. Few things matter as much to a good parent as the health and well-being of his or her kids.
Now that your marriage seems to be ending, the welfare of the children is even more important than ever. While you intend to make every effort to come away from a divorce in good shape personally, the best interests of the kids should always come first. Taking the time to prepare for making custody arrangements helps to ensure you meet those interests.
