Co-parenting challenges affect popular reality tv couple

Co-parenting in the wake of a separation or divorce can be incredibly challenging for Tennessee parents. However, when individuals are able to put the needs of their children first, they can often find common ground with their exes to provide their kids with the love and support they need. Not all former couples find this easy, however, and a former couple from a popular reality television program is currently struggling to find balance in their own co-parenting lives.

Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel of the television program, Southern Charm, share two minor children. Since their separation, they have each struggled with their own problems; Dennis spent time in a rehabilitation facility for substance abuse and Ravenel was charged with assaulting the former couple's nanny.

Recently, a judge granted the pair joint custody of their kids, which means that they will have to work together to make important decisions about their upbringing. Readers may remember that parents can maintain legal and physical custody of their kids, with the former concerning the power to be involved in how a child is raised and the latter concerning where a child lives. Dennis and Ravenel will now have to settle these matters together in order to support their children.

Co-parenting can be very difficult when former partners no longer care for each other. These differences, though, must be put aside so that any children they share can thrive. When struggling with child custody issues, parents can turn to their family law attorneys for support, guidance, and answers to their legal needs.
