Affirmation – I communicate clearly and effectively all my needs and desires.
Alyssa shares her thoughts on some of the top issues she sees as a Family Law attorney
- Custody and Relocation. Sometimes the custodial parent cannot afford to stay in the area and wants to move closer to family. In many cases, he/she doesn’t consider the importance of the bond between the child and the other parent. Work together to be creative, possibly through a therapist, attorney or mediator, to come up with a solution that is in the best interest of the children.
- Put Kids First. Keeping kids in the martial home, or within the same school district, is huge for their stability. Make sacrifices and concessions if you need to.
- Separation from Kids. Don’t dwell on the bad parts of the divorce or the sadness of not having your kids around. Instead focus on how separation from your kids can benefit you – give you time to work on you.
