Family Matters The Most

Helping People Through Tough Family Law Issues

Talking to your kids about your divorce can be one of the most difficult parts of the entire process.

Whether your divorce is amicable or not, it will affect the lives of your children in many different ways, and it is never easy for kids to hear that their parents are getting divorced. That’s why, in our last blog, our family law attorney in Hauppauge went over a few tips to help you talk to your children about your divorce. Keep reading to learn more:

#4. Talk to your kids with your spouse.

Even though you are talking about ending your marriage, you should have the discussion with your children together. Try to be on the same page as your spouse, and support each other whenever possible during your discussion.

#5. Be open to their questions and concerns. 

The end of your initial discussion shouldn’t be the end of the book. Leave the discussion open so that your children will feel free to come to you about any of their questions or concerns. Not only will this help to ease their fears, it will also help you to maintain an open, honest relationship with your children during this trying time.

#6. Let your kids know that you love them. 

Many kids have a tendency to blame themselves when their parents are getting a divorce, but you should make it clear that they aren’t to blame and that they are loved by both of their parents. This is the most important tip that we can give you, but unfortunately, it is also one of the most overlooked.

We are aware that any family law dispute, whether divorce or separation, conflict related to custody, child support, domestic violence or neglect, can cause stress and anxiety.

As an attorney with more than 20 years experience, Catherine has represented clients in reaching divorce, custody and child support agreements.
