In our practice, we listen to “for the sake of the kids” stories week in and week out, but rarely do we hear one that might actually be “better” for the kids than this one by Thomas F. McDow.
What is so interesting is that the situation written about occurs some time after, not only a divorce, but also remarriage. We understand there are plenty of circumstances where this outcome just is not possible for a variety of reasons, but we firmly believe that it is possible in more situations than not. That is, if both parents (and their respective partners, if applicable) truly put their children’s best interests above all else.
If you are contemplating divorce, or have already been through a divorce, and children are/were involved, think about using some of your new year’s resolutions this year towards making your custody arrangements/exchanges, etc. better for them.
