When Kids Are Involved

If you share children of this marriage who are under the age of 18, their best interests are considered by the Judge when you appear in court for your divorce hearing.  Both parents also strive to put their child/ren’s interests first and foremost, but it’s difficult to parent your best when functioning likely at your worst (either considering or going through a divorce).  Please watch this 2 1/2 minute video produced by Sesame Street to get a stronger sense of how your pre- and post-divorce conduct will impact your co-parenting relationship and deep feelings and resulting actions of your children.  Mediate Divorce can help couples work together to determine more effective co-parenting approaches both during and after consideration of and planning for divorce filing.
