Divorce is never easy. This even applies for California couples who agree that getting a divorce is the best choice. Even when spouses are on board and are amicably working through the process, this does not mean that the children involved in the process are happily going along with it. In fact, the process impacts children whether it is a peaceful or contentious life event. The fact of the matter is that dissolving a marriage is a major step that will alter the lives of everyone involved. And for children of divorce, this means their life is different moving forward.
A child will not be living in just one home but will now have a room at two places. Additionally, a child will not have constant access to both parents at the same time. A custody plan will outline the parenting time and rights of each parent. These changes alone can seem drastic to a child, and a recent study discovered that divorce could have long-term health impacts on children as well.
