Audrina Partridge says co-parenting is toughest part of divorce

| Oct 17, 2019 | Divorce |

Swimsuit designer Audrina Partridge has reportedly re-entered the dating scene. As a now-divorced single mother, she recently shared thoughts on what she is seeking in a relationship and also what the most challenging parts of her own marital breakup have been. Many Wisconsin readers can certainly relate to Partridge’s circumstances.

The court granted a protective order in Partridge’s favor when she accused her ex of domestic violence. He is a famous BMX racer and was not allowed to come within 100 yards of Partridge, their 3-year-old daughter, their home or the child’s school. Partridge said that co-parenting has definitely been the most challenging aspect of her divorce.

As a custodial parent, Partridge says she knows what is best for her daughter. She said it is stressful when the other parent refuses to cooperate or compromise, especially when a child wants to do something and the custodial parent approves but the other parent refuses to allow it. In August, Partridge and her ex agreed on a visitation schedule; however, she says it is a constant power struggle when it comes to things her daughter wants to do, such as attend preschool.

In a Wisconsin divorce, one or both parents might have legal custody of their child. This type of custody refers to the authority to make decisions regarding a child’s education, health care, faith and other important issues. If a parent has sole legal custody, he or she may not necessarily have to seek the other parent’s agreement before allowing his or her child to do something. If questions or a legal problem arises regarding such matters, a concerned parent can consult with an experienced family law attorney for support.
