Making your children a priority during divorce

Divorce is rarely easy and can become increasingly complicated if you and your spouse have had children together. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to protect your children and make them your chief priority throughout proceedings in North Carolina. At Cody Law Firm, we have helped many people like you to achieve a balance and put the needs of their children first.

In a recent article published by the Huffington Post, there are several helpful suggestions that you and your spouse can follow to create a more amicable and relaxed environment for your children. These include the following:

  • Quit arguing: While you and your spouse may disagree vehemently on topics related to your relationship and divorce, it is critical that you save these disputes for times when your children are not around.
  • Encourage honesty: Your children will undoubtedly experience a variety of feelings and emotions about your divorce. Encourage honesty and take the time to listen to their thoughts. If necessary, involve a therapist to help your children work through their emotions in a way that is positive and productive.
  • Time it right: While there is never a perfect time to divorce, you can take precautions to try and time it appropriately to make it the least stressful for your children. For example, you may choose to do things over the summer months so you have the maximum amount of time to help your children cope.

As soon as you suspect a divorce, immediately discuss an arrangement for child custody. Where will your children live? When will you and your spouse get to see your children and for how long? Securing these types of arrangements will help maintain a routine for your children and peace of mind for you and your spouse.
