How Connecticut parents can help their kids through divorce

Giving divorce news to children can be heartbreaking. But as difficult as that is likely to be, it's important that both parents in Connecticut to share the burden together even if they find it nearly impossible to be in the same room with each other. Having both parents tell them about the divorce is what's best for the children. Telling them plainly and simply and without malice so they will understand is the best bet. Simply saying that mom and dad can't live in the same house anymore may be all that's needed for a child to get it. 

Kids need to know they're not to blame for their parents splitting up. They need to know they're still loved and that both parents will be there for them if that is indeed the case. Putting children of the middle of any squabbles is not fair to them, nor is it emotionally healthy. Not keeping kids in the dark about the changes they will be going through is one way of helping them to cope and to come to terms with their soon-to-be new lifestyle.

Since kids are creatures of habit, minimizing the impacts on their daily lives will be in their best interests. Keeping them in their current school is one way to help them. They have a stream of friends and teachers in whom they may be able to confide and that is very helpful for kids of divorce. Listening to a child's feelings can help both parents to help their children through the rough times. 

Divorce isn't easy for anyone involved, especially kids. When parents know the laws involved when it comes to their children and divorce, it may make helping them through it easier. A Connecticut lawyer may be able to offer wise advice when it comes to kids and divorce and even provide access to other who may be able to help such as family counselors.

  • Thank you Jennifer for handling my divorce. Everything is going well. Get to spend lots of time so far with my boys that makes me happy. Thanks to you again; I wish you and your firm lots of success from this day forward. All the best.
  • 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.
