When marriages end in divorce, all parties involved usually suffer to some degree — especially children.
Knowing that, Alabama lawmakers are debating whether to require divorcing parents to take training on how to deal with the divorce as it relates to their children.
According to a report from WAAY-TV:
“If passed, House Bill 482 will require a four hour marriage dissolution education course before any parent of a child under 18 could file for divorce.”
That training program would focus on making divorcing parents more sensitive to children’s needs and give them tools to help with the adjustment process.
North Carolina has no such requirements for divorcing parents, but our Charlotte divorce attorneys are well aware of the problems that affect children when parents divorce.
That’s why we are ready to provide information and assistance to parents contemplating divorce.
When parents divorce, children are going to be affected. These situations can be skillfully handled if parents know and understand that fact and make every possible effort to address the situation with care.
The first thing parents must do is make sure that the children know that they are not the problem. Then parents must also make sure that children do not become pawns in their disputes.
Alabama apparently sees the need to make sure parents going through divorce take their children’s situation into account. Our attorney’s see that too.
