Divorce doesn’t mean your parent-child relationship must suffer 

On Behalf of | Apr 14, 2022 | Family Law |

Separating from your partner seems bad enough, but the fact that you are having to leave the family home adds to your worries. Where will you go? When will you get to see your children? What if your ex tries to stop this? 

These concerns are perfectly natural, and divorce can be challenging. However, something that never changes is the fact that you are a parent. This means that you have a legal right to see your child. Hopefully, your ex goes along with this and always puts the best interests of the child first. Here are some practical measures you can take to support your child after divorce. 

Make your new home comfortable 

You’ve had to move out and are not sure where to start in terms of decorating your new place. Why not let your children have a say? If they can put their own stamp on the property, it is going to feel much more like home. Try to give them their own space, such as a bedroom, and don’t make any changes without consulting them first. This level of consistency post-divorce can be very helpful to them. 

Mend fences where you can

You and your former spouse are going to have to communicate somewhat, at least until your child grows up. There’s no getting around this. Why not make the best of the situation, and try to be civil? Many co-parents find that they are actually able to get along better post-divorce because the needs of their children are a shared mutual interest. 

Your parental rights 

Ultimately, even if your ex is refusing to be cooperative, you are still the parent of those children. You have a right to see them and only the courts can interfere with this. If you’re struggling during, after, or before the divorce process, make sure you explore your legal options
