Making Important Decisions Regarding Your Children
When couples cannot resolve their marital issues, they may decide the best
thing to do is file for a
divorce. They will have many important decisions to make and issues to resolve
involving their assets and property and about their children's future.
The people most affected by change in a family situation are the children.
For their sake and in consideration of each other, you can benefit from
the support and legal guidance of a divorce lawyer who is well versed
in family law matters.
The idea is to keep things as stable as possible for the children and protect
their best interest throughout the divorce proceedings. Ways to accomplish
that are through cooperation between the parties and attempting to maintain
a standard of living similar to the pre-divorce situation. The Kent County
courts will take into consideration the financial and intellectual ability,
mental and physical health, history of abuse of child or spouse, behavior
of other household members, and the willingness of the spouses to work
together in considering child custody, visitation and support issues.
Keep in mind that grandparent and grandchild relationships are often an
important part of a child's life, and could be considered when making
decisions about the children's future living and visitation arrangements.
