Divorce and children

Going through a divorce can take a toll on everyone involved. California parents who are ending their marriage may be interested to learn of ways to limit the negative impact it can have on their children.

Choosing the right time of year to initiate divorce proceedings can help children transition. Some parents may want to file for divorce during the school year so that they can attend court hearings and attorney visits without disrupting their children's school days. Other parents may opt for the summer in order to spend more time with their children after they have been told and to help them adjust to their new circumstances.

Separating parents may want to consider whether living under the same roof with the soon-to-be ex-spouse is feasible. One parent could spend the weekend at another location while the other parent spends quality time with the children.Parents should also make a concerted effort to avoid demonstrating conflict with one another in front of their children. This includes refraining from maligning the other spouse, arguing, or involving the children in divorce matters. Instead, parents should focus on co-parenting by being on time for custody exchanges and using texts to avoid combative communication. Parents who want to protect their children from seeing discord may want to consider mediation rather than going to court. The process, which involves a neutral third party helping the estranged couple come to an agreement on the applicable issues, can take less time and be less expensive than going to court.

The ultimate goal is to reach an accord that is in the best interests of their children. In some cases, couples can achieve this through negotiations moved along with the help of their respective attorneys.
