Divorce Doesn’t Have to Destroy Your Family

Navigating Divorce Issues When Children Are Involved

Divorce is never easy, but it’s even more painful and complicated when children are involved. When you choose collaborative law instead of a traditional divorce, your children benefit in several ways. Our goal is always to develop solutions that minimize a child’s trauma and pain, allow them to maintain meaningful relationships with both parents, and have all of their needs met.

As we work with you and your spouse to create a plan that meets your child’s needs, you’ll get the chance to work with experts in various areas. Your divorce team may include financial experts and child psychologists who can help you make decisions with your child’s best interests in mind. Some of the child-related issues we handle in divorce cases include:

  • Custody and Visitation: Developing a schedule that supports the children’s relationship with their parents and accommodates each parent’s work schedule and other obligations.
  • Educational Needs and Decision Making: Enabling a cooperative decision-making process that gives both spouses input into their children’s educational options.
  • Medical Care and Decision Making: Deciding who will cover medical expenses and how important medical care decisions will be made.
  • Maintenance of Parental Relationships: Helping each parent continue to be loving and involved parents in their children’s lives.
  • Effective Co-Parenting Techniques and Strategies: Learning how to communicate with an ex-partner in a way that strengthens rather than tears apart the co-parenting relationship.
  • Parenting Plans: Writing comprehensive parenting plans that account for various situations and needs.

Collaborative law can minimize the negative impact of divorce on your children. Find out how we can help by contacting us today or scheduling an appointment.
