How to tell your kids you are getting a divorce

One of the most important decisions to make when you and your spouse decide to get a divorce is when and how to tell the kids. Because it's such an important decision, I advise my clients to seek out assistance and expertise from a third party professional who can help look at your unique situation, kids age, their development, and the things that are important to them to make sure that they feel the least amount of impact. So contact an experienced family law attorney who will be able to help you find this resource. If you don't have a therapist who you can contact, but we work with therapists all the time who help parents deal with this exact issue.
