Trying to help your child adjust to having their parents split up is difficult. You have to think carefully about what your kids can handle right now. They are probably dealing with a lot of emotions now. These might be more intense than what you realize because children, especially young ones, might have trouble expressing these.

We know that this is a trying time for everyone involved, but you have to ensure that you are thinking of the children first. One of the best things you can do for them is to provide them with stability. Let them see how their new life will be now. Show them that your home is a safe haven for them. Try to keep the peace with your ex so that the kids don’t see their parents arguing.

The child custody order is going to play a big part in how the children are raised after the split. You have to make sure that you understand what’s in it and that the contents are what the children need. Some parents are able to use collaborative methods to come up with the terms of the parenting plan. If you are able to do this, you can take the child’s needs and the unique circumstances of the case into account.

In other cases, the court decides what happens. If this is how your case is going, you have to ensure that you find valid ways to show the court why you think specific resolutions are best. This can be challenging, but we are here to help you work through the custody matters so you can move on with your life.
