Fortunately, more Florida couples are deciding to end their marriages through mediation or collaborative divorce instead of battling in a courtroom. This is especially important for parents who want to give their children the best possible start to a new life. Of course, parents must get over the first hurdle, which is telling their children about the divorce.
How parents present this information can also set the tone for how they will negotiate their child custody agreement. Parents need to devise a plan before discussing the divorce with their children. More than likely, the kids will have a lot of questions. If their parents have already talked about the answers to those questions, they are already on their way toward an agreement.
