Kensington, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/23/2014 -- There are 1.5 million children in the U.S who get affected by their parents’ divorce every year. But at this number, how many cope positively to divorce?
This is the problem most parents undergoing divorce face everyday. The continuous struggle of thinking about what’s best for their children. Never mind the stress, time and effort one is exerting on the legal battle. As a parent, it is always the children’s well-being that is essential.
For children, however, divorce is like dealing with the death of their parents or losing someone they love. The result may affect their emotional and mental development. Especially the part when they get to choose who they want to live with among their parents.
There are possible Legal Grounds for Divorce such as the following: Instance of Adultery, Desertion, and Voluntary Separation of at least a year before filing, Felony, Separation for at least 2 years, Insanity, Cruelty or Domestic Violence to the child or the complaining party.
Aside from considering these grounds, both parties must also put in mind the effects of the divorce to their unknowing children. They must undergo medication and counselling as a requirement to at least aid in making a concrete decision on whether they can continue with the separation or if it is still amenable.
Distribution of Property is also a minor battle that comes as a result of filing a divorce. There should be a settlement regarding the contributions of each party to the financial well-being of their children. Another would be spousal support taking in consideration the age, physical and mental condition of each party. The parties’ ability to meet his/her needs while paying spousal support and the financial needs and resources of each party among others.
Most importantly, the fight for Child Custody. There is a huge number of things a parent must consider in the battle for Child Custody, mainly for the best interest of the child.
