Below, you’ll find a few ideas that can help you show the court how involved you are in your child’s life. While these ideas are based off of things that you’re probably already doing, it’s a good idea to have some sort of proof to offer the court, in case it’s needed.
Record any kind of activities you do on a daily basis with your child, cooking them dinner, taking them to school and more. Even if it’s a normal day-to-day event, consider recording it.
Each time you attend teacher-parent meetings, musicals or school plays, be sure to keep a record of it. Also, document any times you’ve interacted with the office support staff on behalf of your child.
Attend all school activities, such as parent-teacher meetings, assemblies, school plays, and musicals. Try to interact with your child's teacher and office support staff in an ongoing manner. Keep a record of all the activities that you attend.
Document the times you take your child to the doctor and dentist. Nurturing parents are seen as having the child’s best interests at heart.
Is your child involved in church or other extracurricular activities? Foster those activities and help them get there on time when the other parent isn’t able to do so. This will help your child have a moral upbringing.
Document vacations spent with your children, other events and outings that show you spend quality time with the kids. Take photos and mementos for further documentation.
Have witnesses available, who’ve observed your long-term interaction with your children. These can include teachers, doctors, child-caregivers, friends, family and neighbors.
