Child custody: Easing the pain of divorce for kids in Connecticut

Divorce not only impacts the couple, but any children they may have. So, when Connecticut parents work together to ease the sadness and other emotions their children may be experiencing over the divorce, it is in the best interests of everyone concerned. Part of doing that is working together to come to some sort of agreement regarding child custody.

Statistics show that 50 percent of kids born in the 1990s will spend some time in a one-parent home. There are ways to make the transition easier on children. Change is difficult for most people, especially for children, many of whom view divorce as the end of their lives as they have known it. Children fear uncertainty and if their parents can tell them exactly what changes are coming in terms of when they will spend time with each parent, where and how, it will be less stressful for them moving forward.

It is wise to always put the children first, especially when it comes to custody issues. In many circumstances, mediation is the best way to fashion a custody agreement. Any reasonable means to keep the situation out of court would be prudent. Parents can control the situation if they work together to iron out custody details.

A Connecticut attorney experienced in family law can help his or her client with child custody issues. A lawyer will work with the client to ensure the best interests of any children are the top priority. He or she will make sure a parental plan reflects the individuality of the particular circumstances.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
