3 ways to prepare a child to deal with a divorce

When couples in California are divorced, both individuals face changes to the future mentally, emotionally and physically. As they deal with their feelings, it is often easy to forget about the children in the marriage and how they are affected by the divorce. Although the Los Angeles Times states that the divorce rate in California is dropping, there are still many children who need help getting through their parent’s divorce.

Keeping your divorce out of the public eye

Your divorce may be one of the most stressful and embarrassing life events you will ever face. After all, there are probably some sordid details that make neither you nor your soon-to-be ex-spouse look particularly good. Unfortunately, in California, divorce records are part of the public record. As such, anyone who wants to learn about the dissolution of your marriage may be able to gain access. 

Joint-parenting may be beneficial for children

Going through a divorce can be a difficult process, especially if there are children involved. With strong emotions, it can be hard to determine who is entitled to what, the rate of alimony and child support, as well as who should be given custody of the children. In California, and in other states across the country, custody is awarded keeping the best interests of the child in mind. Sole-physical custody was traditionally thought to be advantageous for children, as they did not have to live between homes. However, studies show that joint-custody may be a better option, as the children are able to spend a significant amount of time with both parents.
