Reducing Stress in Visitation Exchanges
As your divorce progresses, you may find that you actually feel better when you have less contact with your ex. If you do not have children together, this is not a difficult objective to obtain. However, if you are a parent then you are probably thrown together with your ex more often than you would like.
Whether contact with the other parent is sad or adversarial, here are a few creative strategies you can implement that will help diminish the repeatedly painful contact.
When you reduce the chance of an adversarial confrontation, you not only help yourself, but you protect your children as well. Research shows that the divorce is not as damaging for children as are the fighting, yelling, screaming, threatening, and general acrimony exhibited by the parents. Your behavior during this challenging time can affect your children throughout their lives. By being prudent now about your behavior, you help insure your child's well being as well as your own.
In order to get a divorce in Connecticut, one of the spouses must be a resident for at least 12 months. However, the divorce case can be started immediately once one spouse moves to the state with the intent of living there indefinitely. The law only requires that the spouse be in the state for the full 12-month period by the time the court issues the final judgment.
