Bay City Divorce Lawyer Whitney L. Thompson Explains Co-Parenting During and After a Divorce in Texas

Bay City divorce lawyer Whitney L. Thompson releases a new article ( explaining co-parenting during and after a divorce in Texas. The lawyer mentions that getting a divorce can be a very tense time for a divorcing couple. Dividing assets and determining custody arrangements can lead to disagreements and can heighten the tension even further.

“The first step in co-parenting during divorce is always to communicate with your children about what is happening. While you may fear their disappointment or sadness, it is often better to have this discussion earlier rather than later so your kids know what to expect,” says the Bay City divorce lawyer.

The lawyer explains that a couple may choose to discuss the divorce with their children together. This way, both of them will be able to affirm that the children are loved and that they will be loved even though the parents are separated. It will also be good if the parents are able to affirm to the children that they have no fault in the divorce and that they will continue to see both the parents in the future.

Attorney Whitney L. Thompson also says that it is important that a parent never vents to their children about the other spouse. It may seem frustrating for the couple to keep things cordial, however, it is very important that they leave the children out of any heated arguments and try to not argue in front of the kids.

In the article, attorney Thompson adds that the couple should also maintain as much stability as possible. This stability means that as much as possible, there shouldn’t be any changes in the children’s life in school, their friends, as well as family ties. If these changes are unavoidable, it will be great to give the children enough time to cope with the new things in their lives.

According to the divorce lawyer, “No matter how much you hate your soon-to-be ex-spouse or husband, a judge will not consider your feelings toward him or her. Instead, the judge will look at your relationship as a way to better raise your child. While your children will need time to adapt and cope with their feelings, the way you handle your divorce can help ease their pain or worsen it all together—in the short- and long-run.”

Lastly, the lawyer emphasizes the importance of having a skilled divorce attorney when dealing with matters involving divorce. Having an experienced divorce attorney may be able to help an individual understand their rights and help them receive a more favorable outcome.
