Blog ImageBreakups are generally difficult to go through emotionally. Even if the people breaking up with each other have a great deal of respect and appreciation for one another, they are still acknowledging that they are unable to overcome differences or obstacles and are better off apart than together. It can be a harsh conclusion to come to, even more so if the couple is married with children. People tend to prefer staying together and raising their children as a couple, but sometimes that simply is not possible.

Parents going through a divorce need to figure out how they will be splitting their property and assets, what sort of spousal support arrangement they will have, and how they will continue raising their children with this new dynamic in their relationship. While some couples might have ugly fights with each spouse trying to get sole custody, other parents try to work together to come up with creative solutions that might suit their children’s best interests.
