Hinsdale divorce attorney for child issuesCouples get divorced for many reasons. Maybe you and your spouse have realized that you are two different people who want different things. Maybe you still love each other, but you have grown apart. Or maybe some other type of conflict has occurred, such as infidelity or financial issues. Whatever the reason for the divorce, it is likely that you and your spouse will not be on the best of terms.

Kids who observe their parents’ arguments are more prone to behavioral problems and emotional issues. During your divorce, you should do your best to avoid arguing in front of your children, forcing them to take sides, or asking them to send messages between you and your spouse.

  1. Keep Routines as Stable as Possible

You and/or your spouse may need to find new living arrangements, your daily schedules may shift, and your life in general will change. For children, all of these adjustments can be difficult, especially when they come all at once. You can help your children transition into these changes by maintaining consistent routines as much as possible. Try talking with your spouse to make sure the same rules are followed in both households, and try to stick to similar schedules for meals, bedtimes, etc.
