Important conversations to have about your child when getting divorced

There are many reasons why a parent may decide to get a divorce. The reality of a divorce between parents is that, however the divorce came about, it can have considerable impact on the child(ren) involved. Careful attention to this impact can be critical for a divorcing parent's endeavor to help their child successfully adjust to the many transitions a divorce triggers in a family.

Given this, there are some conversations which can be very important for a parent to have when planning to get divorced. One is a discussion with a Board-Certified experienced family law expert attorney about divorce issues that will affect children.

Issues such as child custody and child support in a divorce can have considerable impact on a child's life. For example, it can have major implications on a child's day-to-day routine and overall living situation. Talking with an experienced Board-Certified expert divorce lawyer about such issues can help a parent understand what can be done when navigating these issues to help promote and safeguard the best interests of the child(ren).

Another important discussion for a parent to have in connection with a divorce is a talk with the child's pediatrician and school counselor.

A divorce could have a variety of health effects for a child, including impact on a kid's physical health, mental health and emotional development. Proper help and support when it comes to such health effects can be very important. Talking with the child's pediatrician and school counselor about the upcoming divorce and the concerns they have regarding their child in connection with the divorce can play an important role in the pediatrician and the school counselor each having the information they need to be a strong source of such help and support.
