During a divorce, it can be extremely difficult for either party to remain civil and levelheaded. This is even truer when the divorcing parties share children. As a father, it is extremely important you remain present and positive in your child’s life, no matter how you may feel about their mother. While this can be a challenging road ahead, it is essential for you and your family’s future well-being.
The following are common mistakes dad make during divorce and we believe you should avoid them:
- Not spending enough time with your children because you don’t want to deal with their mother is a serious mistake, one you will eventually regret.
- Not paying your child support in a timely manner can be disastrous for the future. It will make you look as though you were not interested in being a part of your child’s life.
- If you don’t have to leave the family home, it is better you’ve don’t. Doing so will separate you from your children more than necessary.
- Using your children as leverage is something you want to avoid. Not only will your children realize what is happening, this may be used against you in future divorce proceedings.
