Divorce can be difficult enough when it’s just a couple splitting up. It can be especially tricky when there are also minor children in the picture.

If your spouse is moving out of your marital home, it’s important to prepare your child for the transition in your family’s life and put their emotional needs first. Here are some tips to help you support your child through this difficult time:

➡️ Talk to your child about the divorce – and let them talk, too.
➡️ Set a good example with calm, civil behavior.
➡️ Answer their questions honestly (and in an age-appropriate way).
➡️ Assure them that it’s not their fault.
➡️ Validate their feelings.

If you’re navigating a divorce in the Commonwealth of Virginia, book a complimentary consultation with us at mylegalcasecoach.com/15 to learn more about how we can help you and your family.

If you’re dealing with an uncooperative co-parent, setting boundaries – both physical and emotional – can help make the process easier. It’s also best to avoid retaliatory behavior or putting your children in the middle of any arguments.

Perhaps most importantly, know that it is not possible to control or change your spouse’s behavior; you can only control how you react to their actions. While acceptance can take time, it’s important to focus on what matters most: your children and their well-being.

Regardless of your situation, consulting a legal professional about your divorce case is always a good idea.

DIY Legal No Longer Means Doing It Alone

My name is Patricia E. Tichenor, founder and principal attorney with My Legal Case Coach. I've spent most of my career working with Northern Virginia families on a variety of family law and estate planning matters, including divorce, settlement and prenuptial agreements, child custody and support matters, step-parent adoption, guardianship and conservatorship, probate and estate administration, and more.

I earned my law degree from American University, Washington College of Law, where I graduated cm laude in 1996. After five years with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Office of the General Counsel, I opened my own law practice in Leesburg, Virginia in 2001. My primary focus was providing strong personal advocacy and compassionate legal advice to clients in various legal matters.

In my nearly two decades of practice, I met many individuals who simply did not have the financial means to hire an attorney to fully represent them in their civil court matter. I found it very difficult to turn away these individuals, and, at times, I would try to provide "advisory only services" to assist them in representing themselves.

In 2018, I decided to take the forms and documents I developed over my many years of legal practice, along with my prior case coaching experience, and launch a first of its kind, online DIY legal case coaching platform: My Legal Case Coach (MLCC).

Many people filing civil cases choose to represent themselves to save on attorney fees, but it can be confusing and intimidating to navigate the court system all on your own. The key to success for any DIY legal matter is having someone in your corner to hold your hand through the process; specifically, an experienced attorney who has been there, prepared the kinds of documents you might need to prepare, and understands what you will need to do to properly prepare your own case in a logical, step-by-step manner.

Let's face it, handling your own legal case comes with extraordinary stress and anxiety. The key to your preparation is not just having the right packet of forms but, also, having the right mindset to get through what may be one of the most difficult times in your life. MLCC is here to help you keep proper mental focus by offering the kind of hands-on coaching you may genuinely need to get through the challenges of handling your own DIY legal case.

With MLCC, you will get more than just a packet of forms. You will also receive one hour of complimentary coaching services with me or another experienced attorney with any packet purchased from MLCC. In addition, you will have the option to purchase reasonably priced blocks of additional pre-paid coaching time, should you have a legal case that you feel requires more hand-holding or customized assistance from us. Lastly, you will have access to complimentary webinars intended to provide further guidance and support.
