Children are the most important assets that spouses have in a divorce. That is why divorce issues involving children can be very contentious. Even if you and your spouse both want what is best for your children, you may disagree on what “best” is.
Some questions you and your spouse will need to answer during your divorce include:
Just like you, your children are going through a significant change. Take the time to talk through all of the above issues with your spouse. If you and your spouse can agree on these divorce issues through settlement conferences and mediation, you may be able to avoid the more-contentious courtroom setting. If you must go to court, remember to leave your children at home.
Most importantly, you will want to discuss how you will work together and find ways to remain cordial with each other in your children’s presence. The better you and your spouse can work together around the children, the more at ease the children will be with your divorce.
