How can divorce negatively impact a child?

Fight Your DUI Charges. Contact Us Today.

Nebraskan parents going through a divorce have more than just themselves to worry about. They also have to worry about their children. Monzón, Guerra & Associates, attorneys at law, understand that divorce can be a difficult or even traumatic experience for a child, and are here to help you determine what to do to limit those stressors.

The first thing is understanding how divorce can negatively impact your child. It can have numerous mental and emotional consequences. This includes the possibility of the child withdrawing, experiencing personality changes, or doing worse in school. The stress of a divorce can be enormous, and every child reacts differently under that pressure.

It has also been shown that kids who are negatively impacted by divorce may continue to have struggles throughout their school years. This can include behavioral problems such as being sent to detention, which is tied to acting out. They may also struggle to make connections and healthy interpersonal relationships with schoolmates, coworkers, or even family members and friends. Divorces can influence their perception of romantic relationships later in life as well.

The long and short term impacts can both be hard for the child and everyone around them to deal with. If you find yourself in a similar situation and need a little guidance to decide what steps to take next or how to soften the impact on your children, consider visiting our web page on child custody and divorce, linked here. We offer the advice of experienced attorneys as well.
