Divorce and Special Needs Children

Parents facing divorce usually worry about how their children will deal with the emotional repercussions of a divorce.   Parents of a special needs child may worry even more.  Studies suggest that the divorce rate for parents of disabled children is about 80%.  This may be due to the additional stresses the family experiences, and it highlights the increased need for effective co-parenting and protection for the children.  We at Collaborative Practice Marin believe that Collaborative Divorce is the best way to develop a plan for special needs children during and after divorce.   This article, written by a Collaborative family law attorney in Virginia, describes the collaborative approach to divorce in families with special needs children.  http://kaleslaw.com/blog/?p=447

Why Collaborative Divorce?

“Divorce is never easy but the collaborative process made mine bearable.  I had more control and therefore less stress and anxiety because I had an active role.”
