Litigation is the most traditional route—and the most expensive and time-consuming. You and your spouse usually hire divorce attorneys and duke it out until a settlement is reached, either by you or a judge. That said, litigation doesn’t mean you’re definitely going to wind up in court, and, in fact, most cases don’t go to trial. “They settle at some point," says Newman. "It’s just a question of when and how much you’re going to spend.” But you can go to court, maybe even a few times.

Understanding the System

Your parenting plan must include certain things – like how often your children stay with you and which holidays are spent with which parent. But it can also include other details that are important to you – like transportation to the children’s sporting events or lessons, and down to the frequency or schedule of phone calls with your kids when it’s not your parenting time.
