How to make divorce and child custody easier on children

California parents who divorce are well aware of the negative effects that the division of a family can have on shared children. In fact, concerns over how kids will take the news of a divorce and child custody changes is a primary factor that leads many couples to postpone filing until they feel that the timing is just right. Once the announcement has been made, parents have a great deal of influence over how their children will handle this time of transition.

Celebrity couple opts for legal separation

Although it may no be the most popular choice, a legal separation can be a good option for married couples that have been together for many years and may need extra time to sort through issues of property division, spousal support and child custody and visitation arrangements.

Legal separation preceded recent celebrity divorce

A legal separation may be one way for couples considering a divorce to gain extra time for considering all options, possibly even for saving their marriage. If a couple does decide that a divorce is in their best interest, the legal separation may have jumpstarted the discussion process for issues such as property division, spousal support and child custody.
