Think about these questions before you go through divorce

Before you decide to ask for a divorce, you need to consider a few different factors involving your children. You know you need to look into your legal options, particularly if you're interested in sole or primary custody. You know your spouse better than others, so you likely know if he or she will be interested in working with or against you when you ask for a divorce.

The first thing to think about is how you plan to move forward with custody arrangements. Do you want to seek shared custody or to have sole custody? Would you prefer your child lives with you or the other parent? Who has more time to spend with your child? Do you want your spouse to have the right to make decisions about your child's health care, schooling and other important parts of his or her life?

It's important to stay involved with your child during the divorce, whether you're intending to take on primary custody or are willing to allow your child's other parent to have him or her most of the time. It's important for your child to understand that, while changes are taking place, you still want what's best for him or her. If your child is older, involving him or her in the process of determining custody arrangements may help. Most courts prefer that both parents play an active role in a child's life.

Your attorney can help you look into your options for child custody arrangements that work for you and your child. Asking the right questions now can help create a stable, balanced parenting plan for your child.
