Navigate the challenges of co-parenting with practical advice and legal tips.
So you did it. You separated. And now the kids that you always planned to raise together are being raised apart. Most people don’t start a family expecting not to see their children every day, and yet roughly half of us end up in that scenario. From there, it’s a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure ― and there are many choices you can make.
Your Place or Mine? is a detailed resource for separating parents. It will help you navigate the legal system, including negotiating a settlement, mediation, and litigation, and explains the nuances of different paths to dispute resolution. It also provides specific advice about what to include in a compassionate separation agreement, such as specifying how far parents can live from each other, where transitions take place, how to handle kids’ belongings, communication, future disputes, and introducing your child to a new partner.
Schwartz introduces you to several families (including her own) with separated parents, as well as adults who were raised by co-parents, and offers their insights. She also provides accessible advice from psychologists on kids’ mental health, as well as tips from family law lawyers, who share anecdotes about the world of co-parenting.

Charlotte Schwartz is a parent of four kids in a blended family, and a senior family law clerk in Toronto, Canada. She worked with countless families to support them in their separations, blending of families, and co-parenting journeys before co-parenting became her own reality five years ago. She has learned a lot, and make plenty of mistakes along the way, which she willfully shares in the hopes that fewer kids will enter adulthood having been the product of high-conflict separations and divorces. In her spare time, Charlotte is a part-time student at the University of Toronto, and a mediocre distance runner.
