Children and divorce: how to deal with this

When parents separate, this will have a major impact on their children. They will probably find it difficult in the beginning that their parents are no longer together.

A large responsibility is vested in both parents to ensure that the children learn to deal with the altered situation after the parents separate. Arguments between the parents are disastrous, because this can bring the children directly into a conflict of loyalty. If parents, away from the children, have properly discussed the reasons for the divorce with each other, this can help to make the contact between both parents and the children better after the divorce. The vFAS lawyer or mediator can help and assist the parents with this, from the time of drawing up of the parenting plan right up to the determination of the child maintenance.
