Helping Connecticut kids get through divorce on a positive note

Children often bear the heaviest stress when their parents split up. Divorce is neither pleasant nor easy for any family members who are involved. But there may be things Connecticut parents can do to make the transition to living life in two households easier for kids. Helping children to adjust may also help parents to do the same for themselves.

As many as 50 percent of all children under the age of 18 will be affected by divorce. So, they may be able to find camaraderie in their peers when dealing with the ramifications which may be unsettling for them. Parents can minimize the psychological impacts divorce can have on their kids by encouraging communication and allowing their children to express their feelings, whether they be anger, sadness, guilt or any other emotions.

When parents educate themselves and take informative courses on how to communicate with their kids, research shows kids do much better in dealing with change. For instance, a course called New Beginnings Program imparts parents with new, effective parenting skills that benefit their children. Such programs help parents to help their kids to deal with problems, to dream bigger dreams and to handle, if not avoid, negative experiences in life.

A family law lawyer in Connecticut may be able to provide a helping hand to clients in divorce situations. Not only will a lawyer have a handle on the laws that govern divorce, but he or she may also be in touch with other individuals who may be able to help family members, particularly children. A lawyer may be able to act as a mediator or to provide the names of others who may be able to offer advice, such as family counselors.

  • 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.
