If you are thinking about divorce or are in the midst of a divorce and are worried about how the divorce might affect your children, you can take action now to help ease the transition for them.
The term “divorce” is simply a legal term for dissolving the marriage. What tends to negatively affect your child’s emotional well-being is actually the amount of conflict and hostility present in the household before and during a divorce. I know this all too well as an adult child of divorce and from experience with representing many clients over the years.
Here are the top 5 ways you can take control now to help your child:
#5: Schedule regular times for your child to spend quality time with the other parent. It is generally a good idea for you and your co-parent to agree as soon as possible on a regular parenting time schedule so that your child has the opportunity to spend one-on-one quality time with each of you. This can help ease the transitional adjustment for your child.
