Divorce FAQ: Protecting Children

The best means by which to protect the interests of your children is by hiring a qualified divorce attorney who values family. You may also wish to consider pursuing a Collaborative Divorce as a means to minimize the devastating impact that a divorce can have on you and your children. In a Collaborative Divorce proceeding, spouses with the assistance of their attorneys and other divorce professionals are able to consult about the best way forward and come to terms that take into account their own interests and those of their children. Through Collaborative Divorce or mediation, the parties can avoid a conflicted courtroom battle during which some attorneys will call children to the stand as witnesses to testify against one parent or the other, and where important matters affecting the family are left to the discretion of a complete stranger: the judge.
