Custody, Adoption, and Divorce

Divorce is never a clear procedure. There are so many things involved in dividing two people from the one life they used to live. Whether deciding who the house belongs to or who should pay the debt, things can get ugly and distorted.

One of the most important issues in divorce is the children. Many families that get divorced have children, or adopted children. There is no question how divorce affects children. It usually isn’t good. However, to add more stress to the situation is that the law can sometimes be unclear about adopted children.

In many situations, the adopted child has already gone through some intense emotional strain, and the fact that their new family splitting apart is not going to help. Legally speaking, you and your spouse are responsible for the child and must decide who will be their guardian. While it is encouraged that both parents remain in their co-parenting roles, it often falls to come parent to be the full custody holder.

It is extremely important to help your adopted child readjust to the new situation, and assure them that it is not their fault. Most doctors recommend children be sent to therapists, just to make sure the have someone to talk to during this painful time.
