For newly separated, divorced, or about to be divorced parents, the idea of involving children amidst the stress of a marital is a painful thought. As an experienced Suffolk County Divorce Attorney, David Vallone suggest that parents look to put their difference aside, to create a smooth back to school transition for school age children. Vallone suggests solidifying parenting time as the first priority when attempting to reduce divorce stress on children. Creating structure will remove the uncertainty many children feel on which parent will be at their after school activities, helping with homework, and scheduling weekend play dates. After structuring parenting time, Vallone suggests defining each parent’s involvement with schooling. While some states may holding rulings as to the balance of custody and educational decisions, exploring the options of having both parents vested in their child’s/children’s education can only benefit the minor in question.

When asked about his opinion on juggling the divorce process and parenting, Vallone suggests that parents always act in the best interest of their children, making sure that education and stability are maintained and held a priority.
