Working together to make the divorce easier for the kids

Georgia parents who are going through the divorce process can become so wrapped up in the situation that they forget about how the changes to their family may be affecting their kids. However, there are certain things that parents can do to help ensure that the transition is easier for everyone involved.

Parents may be interested to learn that it often is not the actual divorce that has an impact on the children but the fighting that may occur. If it is at all possible, couples should pledge to co-parent as peacefully as possible. This means agreeing to not discuss the divorce in front of the kids and to not argue when the children are around. If the children want to talk about their fun adventures with the other parent, the parent should smile and act happy for them. Custody exchanges should occur quickly and with no sharp words being said.

Further, parents may wish to explore mediation. During this type of procedure, parents work with a neutral third party to make decisions regarding child custody and visitation. Unlike litigation, this method does not pit parents against each other, meaning they are likely going to be much happier with the outcome.

The divorce process can be very complex and difficult for parents to understand. A family law attorney may assist a client through the process and explaining all of the different options that may be available. If a parent needs to make post-divorce modifications to a custody agreement due to a change in circumstances, the attorney may provide the evidence that shows how the parent's circumstances have changed, including getting a new job.
