Children may impact the timetable in a divorce proceeding

Readers that know someone or have gone through a divorce themselves know that couples may sometimes be better off going their own ways when a marriage is no longer working. To some extent, lawmakers may also share that opinion, as no-fault divorce is now available in all 50 states.

Ways to spare children's feelings during custody discussions

In a divorce, a spouse may need to advocate strongly for his or her position on matters of spousal support, asset valuations and property division. If children are involved, additional discussion will be required about child custody and visitation arrangements.

Issues in a divorce can be highly interdependent. For example, a couple may have disagreements about property division matters until they consider the potential impact on children. Similarly, parents may disagree about legal and physical custody arrangements until they factor in which spouse wants to remain in the family home, and/or whether one parent has plans to relocate.
