talking to your kids about divorceBy Tamara Hoffstatter

Cordell & Cordell Divorce Attorney

We all hear that in divorce we need to "leave the children out of it” and "don’t get them involved."

We are also advised to come together as parents when addressing the reality of divorce and talk with the children together, to explain what is going on, and how it doesn’t mean that the child is not loved. 

After divorce, when parents are no longer able to be with their children all of the time, it is even more difficult to hold one’s tongue when one parent realizes that the other parent is not doing things "exactly the way I would" during parenting time. 

Jealousies arise when children return home from parenting time and they are excited about the fun they had. Concerns are created when one parent meets a new love interest and introduces that person into the child’s life. 

Parents either purposely or inadvertently make children feel guilty, telling them how lonely they are or how much they miss them when they are gone. The possibilities are endless.

divorce lawyer Tamara HoffstatterQuestion:

An ex-girlfriend is taking me to court for child support now that she knows I am about to settle a large worker’s compensation award claim.

The Summons was issued last month, but the child is several years old. Will I owe back child support from the date the child was born or from the date the motion was filed?

Will my worker’s compensation award be figured in calculating child support?

parenting plan divorceBy Tamara Hoffstatter

Men's Divorce Attorney

Breaking the ties with your spouse and escaping a failed marriage is an opportunity for both of you to make a fresh start. 

Of course, as long as the two of you have children in common, you are never really going to be able to be "rid" of the other spouse. Efforts will need to be made for each of you to be civil to the other and work together to raise the children. 

Fortunately, a properly drafted divorce decree will provide you some standards and rules regarding the child custody and the parenting time schedule so that the two of you will not be "making it up as you go."

marital home division divorceBy Tamara Hoffstatter

Men's Divorce Attorney

So you and your wife bought the home of your dreams! You worked hard and saved to obtain it, and it has everything you ever wanted in a home. 

You also have a ton of memories in that house. Memories of happier times between you and your spouse before it all went south. Fond memories of bringing your newborn children home, watching your children grow up in that house, playing with the kids in the back yard, and decorating for the holidays.

You love that house, and you want to keep it. But will you end up with the marital home after your divorce?
