Protecting a child after divorce

Divorce for families in Oklahoma can be very difficult, especially when children are involved. The goal of most parents is to protect their children as much as possible throughout the process. Despite how difficult it can be, parents who make their children their top priority end up in a better position in the future. By working together and recognizing the rights that children have, parents stand the best chance of a smooth divorce.

Children have the right to be free from their parents' anger whether it's aimed at another parent or at the situation itself. Children do not want to hear about things like infidelity or other negative characteristics of an ex-spouse as it reflects negatively on their own psyche. They have the right to build and maintain positive relationships with each parent no matter what caused the divorce in the first place.

Honesty and integrity are crucial when dealing with a divorce involving children. Kids deserve to know what's going on without being dragged down into the minutia of negative details. They also deserve to give some input about what will happen in their lives, including which parent they will stay with during certain times. They should never be forced to pick between one parent or the other.

Parents with the goal of protecting their children during their divorce may get valuable support and guidance from an attorney who practices family law. Whether decisions need to be made about child custody or child support, an attorney may help their client make the right choice while keeping their emotions in check. An attorney may also help their clients make new arrangements with the other parent if circumstances change.
