Categories: Uncategorized

In many cases, divorces are ugly and messy. Helping your children through it is definitely not easy but it is necessary if you want your them to grow up properly. Here at Romanowski Law Offices, we have a well-trained and experienced attorney in Mr. Curtis J. Romanowski. A seasoned and professional family law attorney such as Mr. Romanowski can discuss strategies and options that will help to ease your children throughout a painful process. We understand that the divorce itself is already a hassle and that handling all the details regarding your children might add more work to your problems. However, they are a necessity in ensuring the well-being of your kids. Below are some ways in which you can help your children through your divorce.

The Childcare Expenses

If both you and your co-parent work outside the home, it is essential that you account for any childcare expenses that might be incurred. With the help of an attorney, it would be much easier to quantify all these costs. For example, children’s daycare expenses as a weekly set amount.

Child Support

Often times, life is unpredictable and you and your child might face circumstances that could result in you wanting to modify your child support agreement. For example, the loss of your job might require you to change the details of the child support payments. If you are looking to modify your child support agreement, it can be done with an experienced attorney.

Coping with Feelings

Many children and even parents feel a sense of grief over the loss of the type of family that they envisioned. This can be an extremely trying time for your children because of the changes that they would have to endure. That is why sometimes children act out, or still cling on to the hope that you will someday get back together with your partner.

Here are some ways in which you can help your kids cope with the effects of a divorce:

Acknowledge their feelings: It is important to let your children feel that they are being heard and that they are entitled to their own feelings. It is important to let them know that their feelings are valid and that it is good to be hopeful for the future.
Give them your support: Children might not fully understand why divorces happen. Make sure that there is good communication between you and your child and that you put in the effort to make them feel better.
Be a good listener: Make sure that your children can put their feelings into words instead of acting out. It is your duty as a parent to listen to them no matter how hard it is to listen to what they have to say.
