One of the most sensitive parts of a divorce is children. Both vulnerable and impressionable, it is very easy for children to be adversely affected by high level of tension and even hostility that comes out of divorce proceedings. Even when parents are fighting for their children’s best interests, the fight itself can leave children confused or emotionally wounded. Though a parent means well, they can cause lasting harm. Preserving a child’s well-being is our firm’s highest priority in every case involving children.

Because we are committed to the well-being of children and their families, we have made available extensive resources to help parents understand what their children are going through in a divorce. Using these resources, parents may be better equipped to protect their children from the pain and confusion that comes from the breaking up of the family. Even in an amicable situation, children will require careful handling and understanding—without this, your relationship with your children can be damaged for years to come. So, please utilize our resources and protect your children from undue stress through your divorce.
