The Unique Challenges of Divorcing when you have Children

Going through a divorce can be a stressful, expensive and time-consuming experience, but when there are children involved, the dissolution of marriage can become even more complicated and exponentially more expensive. Children often have a very difficult time when their parents begin to separate and/or divorce. They experience a wide range of emotions and can even begin to blame themselves for the dissolution of marriage.

In addition to the emotional weight a divorce can have on a family there are a lot of unique decisions that need to be made that can make the divorce more of a challenge. These decisions are ones that affect not only you and your spouse that you are separating from, but also your children.

Making the Tough Decisions

There are many tough decisions you and your spouse will have to make when deciding to divorce. These decisions include:

The lawyers at Sandia Family Law have experience in all family law matters and are also experienced mediators that can help your family create an agreement with the children’s best interest in mind. This process of mediation and uncontested divorce can help create an environment that is less stressful for all parties involved.

When Mediation Doesn’t Work

If you and your spouse are unable to amicably agree to the terms of your divorce, you will have to take your divorce to court and let a judge decide. This judge will have to gather objective input from your family and friends, teachers, doctors and more in order to make an informed decision regarding your children, particularly when you and your spouse have substantially divergent positions regarding what is in your childrens’ best interests moving forward. Courts will always consider the children’s best interests first when making these decisions and never take them lightly. By having one of the lawyers at Sandia Family Law in Albuquerque on your side, you can receive experienced legal representation that will fight to help you maintain your relationship and bond with your children while respecting the child’s best interests.
