Property division, child custody can be challenging to navigate

Those confronting divorce proceedings may feel overwhelmed by the process. They will have to negotiate property division issues, including outstanding debts, and if they have minor children, they must also address child custody. Here are some tips for navigating these aspects of a divorce proceeding in New Hampshire.

First, when it comes to child custody in particular, parents would be wise to recognize that the divorce is a big change in their child's world. Children usually pick up more than their parents might expect. This is why it is critical for two divorcing parents to avoid speaking negatively about the other parent when the child is within earshot. It may be helpful to recognize that the child's relationship with the other parent is different from the parents' relationship with each other.

During divorce proceedings, it's best to avoid social media, particularly if it's used as a place to vent. In the same vein, avoid responding to a future ex's email or text while angry. Wait for a calmer moment. This can help to prevent unnecessary conflict that can get in the way of achieving a settlement that is in everyone's best interests. 

Talking to an attorney as soon as possible after deciding to proceed with a divorce makes sense. This can help to gain a better understanding of the process in New Hampshire in order to set realistic expectations. The attorney can help the client to pursue the most personally favorable property division and child custody outcomes given the circumstances surrounding the divorce.
