Thinking about the kids during a divorce

For many Kentucky parents, getting a divorce can mean splitting up the family. They may not get to see their children as often as they would like and the stress and arguments can result can potentially have an impact on the children. As such, it is in the best interests of the children for parents to put them first.

One of the most important things that parents can do for their children when going through a divorce is to avoid fighting. Studies have shown that the fighting, not the divorce itself, is often what can negatively impact the kids. As such, parents should do their best to not talk badly about the other parent in front of the kids, make custody changes go smoothly and act happy when the kids talk about the time they spent with the other parent.

Another way parents can make divorce easier for the children is to go through mediation. Unlike litigation, which can pit the two parents against each other, a neutral third party tries to get the estranged couple to reach a common ground. By working together, both parents are more likely to be happy with the results and get the parenting time with their children that they want.

Even if both parents agree to work together when ending their marriage, a family law attorney may still assist with resolving divorce legal issues by discussing the options available. The attorney can in some cases take the lead in attempting to negotiate a comprehensive settlement agreement with the other party that addresses the applicable parenting issues that remain outstanding.
