During divorce proceedings, certain agreements are made about finances, custody of children, child support and visitation arrangements. In some cases, both parents are given joint custody. However, in other cases, one parent is given full custody, and the other one has to establish their own visitation arrangement. Most of the time, it is the dads that have to deal with the issue of visitation rights. However, this is not usually the case.
Circumstances shouldn't fool you; there's still some bliss after love goes sour. Should you choose divorce, the terrain could get rough for both of you, no matter whether you saw it coming or not.
