Talking to ex-spouse and his new wife

Follow Us

Divorce is not only difficult for the two people involved; it is also difficult for the children.  Children do not always understand what is happening and they have a hard time coping with the new situation and environment.

This is especially true when one or both of their parents remarry.  In order to avoid conflicts between the parents and the newcomer, all must learn to work together to allow the children to reap the benefits of a positive environment – to have emotional well-being.  Co-parenting with an ex-spouse takes a lot of understanding, patience and communication.

A meeting should be scheduled with the adults to discuss mutual ways to parent keeping the best interests of the children in mind. Discuss your children’s behavior – has it changed?  Set common ground rules and establish guidelines for discipline when necessary. Keep communications open and contact your ex-spouse if new issues arise.

If you find it difficult to communicate with your former spouse regarding your children’s best interests, contact an experienced Riverside Family Law attorney who will guide you through this process and help you make the right decisions for your family.
