How to Minimize the Impact of Divorce on Children

Kelly Caperton Fischer | February 14, 2019


Research shows that what impacts children the most in divorce is not the actual divorce itself, but rather, the prolonged hostility, and conflict, and tension between the parents. It really creates anxiety in the child and can have some detrimental long term effects. Nine times out of ten, when they come to me, they say what is most important to them is my children. How can we avoid the pitfalls of divorce in co-parenting, and one option is Collaborative Law. Collaborative Law provides an option where the parents can put settlement at the forefront, and that allows them to negotiate more openly and truly focus on what is best for their children. My goal as a family lawyer is to help my clients make good decisions and be mindful of their behavior and actions towards the other parent so they can focus on their new family structure moving forward in a positive manner.
