Tips for Surviving a Divorce or Custody Battle
When a Court becomes involved in your parenting, it can feel like you are under a microscope. We like to call it "parenting in a fishbowl." The judge or opposing attorney may make assumptions or allegations that you feel are unfair. This can cause you to become discouraged and depressed. It is important to put your children first when you are going through a custody battle. However, that means finding the right counselor for yourself because lawyers are too expensive to provide counseling. Not only is counseling important for your own self-care, it is critical to ensure that your children feel comfortable speaking to their guidance counselor or receive private family counseling, and there are often long waiting lists to find the right provider.
