Children and Divorce

When you are faced with divorce, one of your first concerns will most likely be the future and well-being of your children. At Stange Law Firm, PC, we make the best interests of the children our top priority in every divorce case.

Children Struggling With Divorce

It is normal to be concerned about the ways a divorce will affect your children. It can be hard knowing what to watch for when a contested divorce is taking place. Our attorneys can refer you to professionals who can provide assistance in addressing problems as they arise. Here are a few things to watch for:

  • How you interact with your spouse has a significant effect on your children. Do not forget that your children will be watching both of you closely. Focus on doing your part to make the process as painless as possible for your kids.
  • Be aware of signs of regression in your children.
  • If need be, get your kids some emotional support. Sometimes people need to talk to someone outside of the situation. If your children are acting out or beginning to withdraw, arranging some professional help is probably an appropriate move.
  • Get help for yourself and avoid putting your children in the middle.
