thesmartdivorce: Remember what's important in divorce -- resolution in a businesslike way. Keep your priorities straight! If you are owed child support, the local prosecutor must help for no charge!
Chooie1: How do we deal? How do we explain it to children? I got divorced in 1990. Still dealing with repercussions -- the kids saw and heard a lot. I feel that I shouldn't have to explain anymore.
susanterry: It would be nice if you and your husband could talk to the kids together. If that's not possible, you know your kids and have to use your best judgment.
thesmartdivorce: You and your ex must be united for your children's benefit and let them know you'll work together for them.
susanterry: All of you need to get good advice, and protect yourselves and your children financially. Be strong and smart and tough. You can cry, but not to the exclusion of doing what is right for you and your family.
thesmartdivorce: Divorce is rough stuff. Try to look at the property division as a business. Remember your children are innocent victims and would much rather have you two together. Your children need you to protect them. Love them and they will be okay!
CL-mizlizzy: Thank you so much Susan Goldstein and Valerie Colb -- we appreciate your time, and I appreciate your answers to my questions.
