How Does Divorce Really Change Childhoods?
Children living through chaotic family lives are often at-risk for abuse, poverty and mental health issues. The good news is that divorce can offer families a distinct plan and clear rules. This stability can make a radical change for a child and help them have predictability, emotional consistency and other benefits that help them recover. To achieve this, our attorneys focus on:
- Creating an immediately safe space for children in the home, particularly when there is a history of abuse
- Establishing clear expectations around child custody, such as creating a weekly or monthly schedule that accommodates school and extracurricular activities
- Resolving financial issues through an enforceable and consistent child support order
- Answering questions about visitation, including for grandparents
With these issues out of the way, you and your co-parent can focus on facilitating your child’s health, education and interests in healthy ways.
