Graduation is just one event parents attend in or after divorce

When Utah parents are going through a divorce, it can be an emotional roller coaster ride. Depending on the circumstances, the parties might not be able to get through the divorce without ill feelings. This means that it can be a challenge for ex-spouses to be in the same room during and after the divorce without coming to some sort of agreement.

It could take some time, but most parents realize that their feelings for each other need to take a backseat to the needs of the children. They can then recognize that those special events that occur in the lives of their children deserve to be celebrated without worrying about whether their parents will be able to get along. The one thing that Utah parents will always share is their children.

They can also share their pride in their children and a desire to see them happy and successful. The parties can begin by negotiating a parenting plan that provides them with a set of guidelines for attending events that are important to their children. This can help the parties create an atmosphere in which they can learn to compromise and work together when it is important, and sometimes, that is enough.

There are many instances in which people who are unable to function as a couple can continue to be loving parents and be united when it is for their children. Some people would say that the divorce was the best thing that happened to their ability to raise their children. Without the pressures that led to the divorce, they can move past the end of their relationship and look forward to the future as loving and proud parents.

  • Brian attended mediation with us today and he was a rockstar. He was very knowledgeable and thorough. I don't know what we would have done without his well-informed counsel and the way he stood up for us. He maintained a calm and authoritative demeanor, even in the presence of the 4 other attorneys on the other "sides". We will be recommending him to anyone who needs a family law attorney, and we'll be choosing him if we ever need one again! Read more...
