Helping Your Children Through Divorce

Divorce is difficult for the adults involved and even harder on their children. Most couples going through a divorce can at least agree on the desire to minimize the impact on their children. Your family attorney in Cumming can help you navigate the divorce process in a way that protects your children as much as possible. This legal advice will also help.

When you are making contentious decisions about child support, child custody, and division of assets, it is natural to feel angry and overwhelmed. However, make a point of not venting in front of your children, and resist the urge to put them in the middle by bad-mouthing the other parent. Children are likely to be afraid of losing one of their parents, so encourage your ex to continue to maintain a relationship with them, regardless of any conflict you may be having about child support or visitation schedules. Having a plan with your spouse to co-parent, that includes visitation schedules and how you will deal with making decisions about the children, can help children understand that they will have an ongoing relationship with each parent after a divorce.
