Effects of Divorce on Child Custody

By Jonathan E. Kroll & Associates  Jan. 6, 2011 9:25a

One of the most unfortunate consequences of divorce proceedings is the negative effect that can sometimes be imparted to the children of the divorcing spouses. In all too many divorce cases, the proceedings regarding child custody and child support can be extremely caustic and create a volatile emotional environment for everyone involved. For the children who do not understand what is occurring, losing a parent can be emotionally scarring and painful. When you are involved in a divorce including children it is always a very important issue to ensure that your children are both well cared for and are able to continue their lives normally. With the assistance of a New York divorce attorney, you can improve your chances of finding a solution that both meets your needs and creates a positive environment for your child to adapt to the new situation.

The most important part of the child custody process is, as always, the safety, happiness and well being of your child. We understand that as a parent it is vital that you are able to continue caring for your child, and have a joint role or custodial position in the upbringing of your child. Most divorces result in the joint custody of a child in which both parents share the decision-making process as well as the custody and upbringing of the child.

In shared custody situations, the parenting and custody rights are split almost completely evenly, giving both parents equal time with their child. This can result in a smoother and more harmonious divorce process, putting less emotional burden on the children involved.
