During any divorce, the most important thing that should be considered is the children, if there are any in the family. Divorce can not only be a stressful time for both parents but it can change a child’s life forever.
Finding solutions that both parents can agree on is very important. In most cases, arrangements are already made by the time it comes to make a divorce official. In some cases, there can be disputes and issues to settle.
The basic things that need to be agreed upon are how much time is spent with each parent and where the child or children live.

Custody of your children
When divorce happens there can be battles about who has custody of the child or children. Each party needs to consider if it’s in the child’s best interest to stay with them.
The child’s physical and emotional needs should be considered carefully and their wishes need to be taken into account, dependent on their age and understanding of the situation.
The goal is to make sure the child is looked after and both parents have a fair agreement.
