How Can I Protect My Kids?

Guiding Your Children Through a Divorce

No one ever initiates divorce with the goal of hurting the children, but sadly, this is the case far too often. Long, drawn-out custody battles can place your children in the middle of a nasty fight that transforms them from children to pawns.

To protect your kids during a divorce, consider the following:

  • Be honest, but discreet. While you should take time to explain to your children, avoid giving them too much detail.
  • If possible, settle your divorce outside of court by going the uncontested route.
  • Avoid talking poorly about your spouse in front of your children.
  • Don’t try to get your children on “your side.”
  • Keep divorce issues separate from co-parenting issues.
  • Don’t put children in the middle of you and your former spouse. They’re not a messenger or a spy.
  • You should encourage your children's relationship with their other parent.
  • Make sure that you have life insurance to secure child support and alimony payments
