How well have you thought out the sleeping arrangements?

If you’re a custodial parent, you’ve undoubtedly assigned a bedroom or bedrooms to your children. Still, you must remain vigilant about sleeping arrangements in your home. And you must always be thinking about your children’s ages and their needs for personal privacy. Older children should not be sleeping in the same bedroom, especially if they’re of the same sex. Whenever you have house guests, be careful in assigning sleeping spots to each of them, especially if you have sexually active or curious teens or pre-teens under the same roof.

If you’re a noncustodial parent, ask yourself whether you have enough room to accommodate the children during visitations. Will they be comfortable? Will they be forced to room with siblings or half-siblings who they really should not share a bedroom with? Will they have reasonable access to a bathroom, a closet , etc?

This advice may be quite basic, but time and time again, family court judges find themselves making preliminary custody and visitation rulings based on the living arrangements at each household. Make sure you button down this issue before you set foot in court the very first time.

Let me know if you have any personal experience with this issue.
