Extended divorces may not be good for children

Few, if any, California children enjoy the prospect of their parents splitting up, so divorce is almost always going to be a difficult situation for kids. It is quite common for children to blame themselves for their parents' divorce, and a major change to a kid's living situation is likely to be hard for them. However, how a divorce is handled and how long it takes to be sorted out can play an important part.

In some cases, people may start to second guess their choice to end their marriage. This may occur before or after they or their spouse has moved out of the family home. Uncertainty may come from a number of reasons, including not wanting kids to grow up without both parents, religious mandates or financial issues.

While people should obviously avoid a divorce if possible, the decision to split or stay together should be made. When children are unsure of their situation, especially that of their parents, they are unable to adapt or move on from their previous situation. This can make a tough situation that much harder for kids.

While it can be difficult to determine a variety of matters during a divorce, one thing that may be helpful is to understand how the law treats certain topics. For example, legal custody, which is the right to make certain important decisions involving children such as what school they will attend, is usually shared equally. An attorney who has experience in these types of family law matters can also explain other issues to a client who is considering filing for divorce.
