An attorney can help shield your child from divorce conflicts
“What stupid poem could fix this home, I’d read it every day.” Those words are lyrics from the song “Stay Together For the Kids,” by rock band Blink-182. The song’s perspective is that of a child’s whose parents are in a turbulent relationship. The child wants nothing more than for his parents to just get along. But as we know, sometimes a marriage is beyond repair.
Divorces are seldom tidy affairs. When two people enter a relationship with high expectations they may exit with such disappointment that the parting becomes volatile. And while it is one thing for two adults to elevate their disputes to combustible levels, it is quite another thing for their children to have to endure the battle.
So if you are leaving a seriously contentious relationship, especially if violence was part of the equation, it’s important to do all you can to shield your children from the turmoil. To see one’s parents engaged in emotional and physical violence can be damaging to a child and should be avoided if at all possible.
