A Tampa Divorce Attorney Discusses How to Keep the Kids off the Divorce Battlefield

As a parent, your biggest concern when divorcing is your children’s well-being. The following are some suggestions for how to minimize the impact of your divorce on your most precious asset, your kids. Contact a Tampa divorce attorney with the All Family Law Group at 813-321-3421 for a free consultation to discuss your case.

As a parent, you have the paramount responsibility of keeping your children safe. Unless there is a threat of physical harm, the courts will have very little involvement in protecting your child. It’s up to you to shield them and keep them off the battlefield. A Tampa divorce lawyer can help advise you of the some of the best ways to keep the children away from conflict while the divorce is pending.

Keep the Fighting among the Adults

A common mistake divorcing parents make is to fight or argue in front of the kids. Don’t! No good can come from involving kids in conflicts between their parents, even if those conflicts are behind closed doors. Likewise, bad-mouthing the other parent in front of your child can cause stress and make them think less of you. Our divorce attorneys in Tampa, Florida can advise you.

Avoid Using the Kids as Pawns

Resist the temptation to use the children as bargaining chips, intermediaries, allies or spies. Children can end up feeling used or betrayed. You run the risk of forever harming their trust relationship with you and their other parent.

Be a Parent, Not a Friend

Children need clear boundaries. Let them keep their friends at school and their parents at home. Don’t expect them to validate your side against their other parent or act as your confidant. Children do not have the emotional maturity to handle grown up issues. They may feel confused about betraying their other parent or lose respect for you. Think about discussing these issues with our divorce attorneys in Tampa Florida.
