Separating from the parent of your children is hard for you and the children involved. When there are no children involved, you can part ways and then heal on your own schedule. However, sharing children may require you to maintain an amicable relationship with your former spouse. Children are often the innocent victims of a divorce. It is important to make sure they do not feel like they are at fault for the separation and they should not have to be forced to choose a parent.
For the most part, the times you'll be communicating with your divorce attorney while your marriage is dissolving will be when documents are required, there is a question about your finances or assets, or you have a court date for child custody or other things. However, there are other times you'll want to get in touch with your divorce attorney while your case is still ongoing, and you don't want to miss out on opportunities for discussion.
