Confusion, kids and co-parenting

On Behalf of | Jul 26, 2023 | Firm News

Our readers in Virginia who are contemplating a divorce and who have minor children know that there will probably be tough times and tough conversations ahead.

As a recent news article pointed out, if the process of divorce can be confusing for adults, just imagine the confusion that kids experience. Charting a path through the divorce process to post-divorce life means navigating that confusion along with your children and, ultimately, reaching a place where co-parenting is as seamless as possible.

Of course, that is oftentimes easier said than done. Although in many divorce cases, and in post-divorce life, the ex-spouses can be civil enough to try to do what is best for the children, that isn’t always the case.

After all, if a divorce has occurred, something in the relationship probably went wrong, at some point. Can the ex-spouses work together to co-parent successfully?

That is a big “if” for many people who are going through a divorce in Virginia. The recent news article suggested that when it comes to co-parenting, perfection probably shouldn’t be the goal – making good decisions, as best as you can as co-parents, should be.

Your case, your questions

If you are facing a divorce case and you have uncertainties about post-divorce life, be sure to get the best information you can that is specific to your family law case. A divorce is obviously a big step in life and there is no denying that such a move can be incredibly impactful on any minor children involved.

Information and good advice are crucial to helping divorcing parents get through the legal process.
