What Children Go Through in a Divorce

Divorce presents difficult challenges for the children involved. Even under the best of circumstances, they can easily become overwhelmed and anxious. As parents, it is important to focus on what can be done to nurture your children throughout the divorce process.

To minimize what children go through in a divorce and protect their best interests, it is crucial to work with a Florida attorney who has compassion, credentials and experience advocating on behalf of children in such cases. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

Plantation, Florida, Child Custody Attorney

Having been appointed by Florida courts as a guardian ad litem in more than 30 cases, Fort Lauderdale and Plantation attorney Kelley A. Joseph has worked with several children who are in the middle of divorce and family law disputes involving:

  • Child custody and visitation matters
  • Child support issues
  • Child relocation due to parental move-away

Most of all, children need both of their parents in their lives. It can be difficult for a noncustodial parent to remain active in the day-to-day activity of his or her children's lives, especially in the middle of a volatile, emotional divorce. Yet spending time with your children is never more important — they need to know that both of their parents love and support them.

A divorce is easier on children when their parents make an effort to get along with each other and avoid (intentionally or unintentionally) putting their children in the middle of arguments or difficult situations. It is especially important that parents do not use their children to relay messages. Under such circumstances, children may feel that they are expected to choose a side. You can do much to avoid this outcome by communicating directly and discreetly with each other.
