Getting a divorce is very seldom pleasant, but things can become even more
difficult if there are children involved. If you follow a few tips and
hire a good
divorce lawyer, however, you can help things go more smoothly as you work to put an end
to your marriage.
Watch Your Tongue
It can be easy to bad-mouth your spouse while you are going through the
stress of a divorce. However, make sure that you don't let your kids
hear you, or even worse, participate in these conversations. It can make
things very confusing for your children if they hear you saying bad things
about the other parent.
Don't Use Your Child as a Pawn
Be careful not to use your child as a pawn in your divorce. For example,
avoid threatening your spouse with taking your child away or keeping your
little one from the other parent. Although you will obviously want to
protect your child from abusive or dangerous situations, you shouldn't
just keep your child away from the other parent just for the sake of causing
problems because of the divorce.
Be the Best Parent You Can Be
It's important to be the best parent that you can be. If you put your
child in a bad situation, abuse alcohol or drugs or otherwise come across
as someone who isn't a good parent to your child, it could affect
your child custody case.
Hire a Lawyer
You should never try to handle a divorce on your own, especially if there
are children -- and therefore things like child custody and child support
-- involved. Instead,
