For many parents, the divorce process can be tough because of the different ways in which the end of a marriage affects their child, as well as their relationship with their child. Aside from negative emotions, many parents have a hard time because of the outcome of a custody case. For example, a parent may not be able to see their child as often as they would like (in some cases they may not be able to spend any time with their child). Or, a parent may have difficulty dealing with their child’s other parent with respect to shared custody.
If you will have to spend less time with your child because of a custody ruling, this can be a very tough pill to swallow and our law office completely understands how hard it can be for parents who are facing these challenges. However, you should try to adjust to these changes and do what you can to protect your relationship with your child. Your child’s well-being should always be a top priority and even if you have to spend less time with them, you may still be able to make a positive and significant impact in their life and prevent your relationship with them from being negatively affected by the outcome of a divorce.
Moreover, a number of circumstances may make it possible for you to spend more time with your child in the future. It is vital to always be aware of the legal possibilities that may arise and different strategies that could enable you to be with your child more often.
