How To Tell Your Child(ren) About Your Divorce
The worst thing to do is to do nothing. It is a time of great emotions for you which may include hurt, pain, humiliation, confusion, and a host of other emotions. Yet it is a time when you must deal with the emotions of your child(ren).
The response of your children may range from being pleased (in the case of abuse and/or long term disharmony) to shock and anger. Listed below are some guidelines for telling your children.
Both of you is ideal. You should sit down as a family so all hear the same things and can ask questions.
The best time is a few days to a week before your physical separation.
What Not to Do
Both parents must support their minor children. Child support is based on the Nevada Child Support Guidelines, which considers the cost of health insurance, the cost of child care, any special educational needs of the child, the age of the child, the legal responsibility of the parents for the support of others (such as elderly parents or other minor children who are not the product of the marriage), and the amount of time the child spends with each parent.
