On behalf of Stange Law Firm, PC posted in child custody on Saturday, December 8, 2018.
In this post, we will take a close look at some of the challenges that are unique to parents. Raising a child can be tough for many reasons, from financial demands to daily stressors that surface in parents’ lives. Sometimes, life as a parent can be particularly tough, such as instances where a couple cannot come to an agreement on a key decision in their child’s life. For example, a couple may disagree about sending their child to a particular college for various reasons. In some cases, these disputes can even result in the end of a married couple’s relationship.
Parents can disagree on many different key issues when it comes to the best interests of their child. Some may believe that a child should not be vaccinated or allowed to date at a certain age. A parent may be opposed to their child attending a certain college because they are worried about the school’s reputation, the cost of tuition or their child moving so far away from home. Unfortunately, this can lead to a divorce, which may be particularly challenging for a child to deal with during a chaotic time in their life.
As a parent, you should always do what is best for your child. Discussing these types of issues with your spouse is important and you may be able to work towards an agreement. In other instances, your spouse may be very bitter and vehemently opposed to a decision that your child has made, ultimately leading to divorce if they blame you.
