Children and Divorce
How Can You Protect Your Kids in a Divorce?
You can't completely protect your kids in a divorce, but you can make the best possible effort, such as limiting your child's exposure to arguments with your spouse. While you cannot eliminate the emotional turmoil felt by your children in a divorce, you can make a conscious decision to get divorced or separated fairly and amicably.
In other words, you can pick and choose your battles.
Best Interest of the Children Standard
You've probably heard that family law cases focus on what's in the "best interests" of the children. This means that any issue involving kids is determined on a case-by-case basis by considering a number of factors. Some factors include:
- The strength of the relationship a child has with his or her parents, siblings and grandparents
- The ability of the caregiver (the would-be custodial parent, grandparent, or other family member) to provide for the child's health and welfare
When it comes to children and divorce, a judge may determine that the safety and well-being of the child is best served by going to live primarily with one parent over the other parent. In most cases, however, both parents will be given the chance to co-parent the children and share time with them. This is why it's so important to ensure you have good legal representation.
These decisions can make a big difference in your child's life. This is why it's so important to ensure you have good legal representation.
