I have a philosophy about divorce cases. “Family law” has that name for a reason. In other areas of law, the parties file their actions and go to court to get a final resolution. However, in most family law cases where children are involved, the parties will necessarily continue to be in each other’s lives as co-parents of their children. It is my belief that in these cases, the attorney should always strive to help the parents find a way to separate peacefully, and establish rules and boundaries that will enable them to continue to be parents of their children and interact with the best interests of the children in mind.
Dealing with a divorce is a daunting task indeed. Once you place children into the equation, the situation becomes even more difficult to handle for people who barely know what to do themselves. The following rules should help you focus on what you should do when you spend time with your children, both during and after the divorce process.
