Maintaining lifestyle important for children of divorce

By |2022-10-07T09:22:31+00:0031 Oct 2016|Categories: Child Support|

Despite their protestations when it is time to go to bed or if they want to eat dessert without having touched any vegetables, children need structure and rules. And children need continuity. It can be very difficult for a child who has to suddenly adjust to a dramatic life change. And certainly, when a child’s parents divorce, there will be major changes with which to contend.

One of the biggest worries a child may have is where he or she will live after the divorce. Often it is possible for the custodial parent and child to remain in the family home. But this is not always the case, meaning the child may have to move to a new neighborhood, start a new school and make new friends.

When this happens, it is important to try to help the child retain as many aspects of life to which he or she has grown accustomed. For instance, if the child plays a musical instrument or participates in a sport, these activities could provide a certain amount of comfort.

Moreover, these pursuits could also offer opportunities to interact with other children and make friends. On the other hand, if the parent can no longer pay for music lessons or fees for sports leagues, the child’s well-being could be negatively impacted.

As such, if you are divorcing and will be a custodial parent, you want to make sure that you receive a level of support that can allow your child to maintain his or her accustomed lifestyle. At the Law Offices of Dorie A. Rogers, we can act on your behalf to help you receive the child support that will help your child make an easier transition to his or her new life. We can assess your situation and offer evidence to the court demonstrating that it is in your child’s best interests that you receive enough financial support to provide for his or her needs.
