Collaborative Divorce: The Best Option When You Have Children?

When you are going through divorce, you may be concerned about the impact that it could potentially have on your children. When two divorcing parents are able to co-parent in a respectful manner, it not only relieves stress on the parents, but also brings the best outcome for the children. High conflict divorce can lead to anxiety, stress, and acting-out behaviors in children, which is why so many people choose to go through with collaborative divorce when it is a possible scenario.

Why is Collaborative Divorce Sometimes the Better Option? 

When you litigate your divorce with your spouse, you and your spouse are pitted together as adversaries in the court of law, with everything up in the air. You may have an end goal picked already to co-parent your children and, with an ugly courtroom divorce looming overhead, you may never reach this end goal. If you are just thinking about divorce or you have already begun the process, it is not too late to look at a collaborative divorce option. We have experience in these cases and can help you in your time of need. It can also help you save money, which can be used to pay for matters involving your children, relieving stress along the way!

Keeping Your Children Out of Your Divorce 

Sometimes, it may be difficult to keep yourself from saying certain things, or leaning on your child’s shoulder in your time of need, but you need to be strong in the face of divorce to deal with it head-on for your children. Here are some tips for keeping your children out of the middle of your divorce:

  • Not making negative comments about the other parent
  • Not confiding in your child when it deals with your divorce
  • Avoiding using your child as a “middle man” to relay messages
  • Not seeking information about the other parent from your child
  • Allowing your child to tell you about their visit with the other parent on their own

As a parent, the well-being of your child is first and foremost to you. You may worry about how they will feel going through the divorce, or what they have shared with you. Now is the time to talk to us to get you the best results in your case. Call us for more information on how we can help.

Beyond impressed! I had been self represented through years of family law and child support court hearings and was so hesitant to hire an attorney out of fear and trusting that they would appropriately represent myself and child. After tons of research I contacted Ms. Azizi. I immediately was greeted by Lorenzo, the Office Administrator, who made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. He assisted in making communication seamless and effortless and walked me through each step of the process. Ms. Azizi heard my concerns and was extremely sensitive to the matter of FAMILY. The team did an amazing job with discovery and building a strong case that gave me confidence and I was successful in coming to an agreement with the other party, in what has yet to have been the easiest hearing of all, thanks to them. Ms. Azizi settled my case after years of stress and agony. I am grateful for finding the team and Ms. Azizi and definitely recommend them for any of your legal needs!

This law firm is the best! They have helped me so much with my Divorce and Criminal cases and I really wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have them to represent me. Lorenzo and Ro are awesome and are there to help at all times. My attorney was Mr.Edmondson and he has been amazing. This law firm is truly great and I will never go to any other one. Their responses are quick and will answer any questions you might have.

Seven stars. I had planned to put up my reviews after my final judgment but after the first hearing, couldn't wait, and I would write this whatever the outcome of my difficult case. Soheila was simply amazing in her arguments and strategy before the judge. I felt so taken care of. I chose her for her near-30 years of experience as an attorney, the depth and strength I observed in one who had weathered hardship through her many accomplishments, her compassion, and her smarts. I can't imagine what other attorney would have Zoomed with me even in sickness to help prepare me for a legal session. And I later saw how keen she'd been in her advice. I've been deeply touched watching Soheila and her paralegal Lynda Walker fight for my child as if he were their own. They in particular have treated me with great humanity - day and night from what I experienced at my former attorney's. Lynda is a gem, on her toes, flexible, hard-working, committed to each client, humble, and sweet. She has slaved over my case, doing much of the writing, watchful of me on paper and in person, guiding me gently while encouraging me to use my voice. The staff, including the office administrator Lorenzo and Linda C, is caring, respectful, and conscientious. A band of angels.
