Here's the thing, whether you go to court or not-you still have to coparent outside of court.
Parents who become embroiled in legal battles usually find themselves turning to their lawyer to report every coparenting incident they have.
You need to recognise that long after your lawyer has banked your last cheque, you will still need to function as a coparent with your ex.
And no matter how many items get typed up into a court order, there will still be the reality of parenting indoor daily life and the unexpected challenges and differences of opinion.
If you want your children to be healthy and happy (and isn't that what ALL this is about?) then you need to learn three things.
1) to function as coparents
2) to solve problems between you
