Does divorce impact adult children?

As an older couple in Wisconsin that is considering divorce, you may believe that your adult children are well past the age where they might be seriously affected by it. However, it has been shown that no matter how old you or your children are, divorce can have a large negative impact.

What are age-appropriate ways to help children deal with divorce?

It is unavoidable that your divorce in Wisconsin will have an effect on your children. However, the way that your children react can vary depending on their ages. Younger children have difficulty understanding the rationale for the divorce even as they feel the increased tension between parents. Older children are more likely to side with one parent against the other or entertain fantasies of facilitating their parents' reconciliation. 

You can help yourself through divorce

Even under amicable circumstances, getting a divorce is not easy. A lot of work goes into separating two lives, including making child custody decisions and dividing property. Of course, as you prepare for your case, you likely already know that you will have a long road ahead of you.

Coparenting and back-to-school planning

Wisconsin parents of school-aged children know that when the calendar flips to the month of August, going back to school is right around the corner. From backpacks to activity signups to packed lunches and more, the school year brings a unique set of demands and type of structure to a family's life. When children must live in two home due to their parents being divorced or separated, they need their parents to be able to work effectively together to make the transition back to school a smooth one and help the year run well.

Charges in hot car deaths follow no predictable pattern

Finding one or more children dead after accidentally leaving them in a hot car is every parent's worst nightmare. Unfortunately, the parents of approximately three dozen children across the country, including Wisconsin, experience this nightmare every year. At the Mayer Law Office, we know that if you are a parent in this scenario, you are probably filled with feelings of shock and confusion. Adding to the confusion is the uncertainty of not knowing whether you will face criminal charges for your tragic mistake.
