As a parent, you may have a number of concerns as school season approaches. Perhaps you are trying to buy clothes and school supplies, or maybe your child is experiencing anxiety about returning to school. At Stange Law Firm, we know how Missouri families become stressed out over divorce. However, if you and your spouse are talking about ending your marriage around the time when your child will be heading back to school, it is particularly important for you to ensure that you take the right steps to make the transition less challenging during this time of year.
On the one hand, your child may experience certain emotions when they find out about your plans to divorce, such as depression or even anger. In order to do what you can to prevent these issues from interfering with their transition back to school and their performance in class, you may want to try to discuss your divorce with your child (or children) and answer any questions that come up. In fact, school season can create challenges for parents as well, especially those who are approaching the divorce process. For example, you might feel as if you have a lot on your plate because you are trying to adjust your schedule to include responsibilities such as transporting your child to and from school, helping them with extracurricular activities, etc.
