Illinois divorce lawyerWhen your marriage is failing, and you know divorce is the next step, you may stop to consider how your children will respond. If you determine that they simply cannot handle growing up in a broken home – perhaps because of a disability, a sensitive demeanor, or a rough upbringing – you may be tempted to put off the inevitable. Are you really doing your children a favor though, or are you doing more harm than good? The answer may rest in the underlying issues of your marriage.

Domestic Violence and Children

If there is any marriage in which divorce should not be delayed, it is one in which domestic violence is present. Violence of any sort can have a negative impact on the growth and development of a child, and it may also increase the child’s risk for several mental health conditions, such as depression, aggression, and anxiety. Furthermore, children may ultimately be at risk for violence themselves, even if they are not currently the target. If you are a victim of violence, do not wait. Get help immediately. Seek out services tailored especially for victims and contact an experienced family law attorney for assistance with your divorce.
