Ending your marriage as a new parent

On Behalf of | May 22, 2018 | Child Custody & Visitation

There are all sorts of reasons why a couple makes the decision to end their marriage. In some instances, divorce may be on the table following one person’s infidelity, while other marriages break down due to years of disagreements and dissatisfaction. For many couples, the birth of a child can strengthen bonds and signifies the accomplishment of a lifelong goal. However, new parents may also find that the responsibilities associated with parenthood have created friction within their marriage. For example, some may lose sleep, struggle at work, or frequently run into disagreements with their spouse about child care responsibilities.

Sometimes, these challenges can lead to a divorce and couples are not able to work through their differences. As a new parent, your divorce may be especially difficult for various reasons. For example, you may have even more stress and be worried about your child’s future or the way in which your divorce could impact your child in the years to come, from an emotional and financial point of view. As a result, it is essential to do all you can to prepare for your divorce and the possible ways your life could change afterward. Bringing your marriage to an end with a small child may seem daunting, but people in this position are able to work towards a brighter future by carefully approaching the divorce process.

Whether you are a new parent or have adult children, it is important to consider divorce-related topics that affect parents (custody, child support, etc.). Our divorce page has additional family law information.
