How to make your co-parenting schedule work

Co-parenting is one of the hardest things to do. Your marriage already broke down, and now you have to work together with your ex-spouse to parent your child. While it may be difficult at first, co-parenting your child is usually the best thing to do in the long run.

When you are co-parenting, your child benefits from you and your ex getting along (or at least appearing that way) and working together. It shows you're committed to making your child's life easier and committed to raising him or her as a team.

Can I bypass a health care power of attorney?

Imagine you suffer a catastrophic hiking accident. You're in a coma and can no longer communicate. Fortunately, you've set up a health care directive regarding the medical care you'd like to receive. The problem is, the doctor doesn't agree with your directive.

Does the doctor in such a circumstance need to follow the health care directive, no matter what? Or, can a doctor who disagrees with a health care directive choose to follow his or her conscience and disobey the directive?
