You and your spouse adopted a sibling pair during your second year of marriage. Together, you began to raise your children and had a wonderful life together, at least for a while. Unfortunately, the way you want to raise your kids is not exactly the same as how your spouse wants to raise them. You both argue almost relentlessly over punishments, how to reward your kids and other issues.
You know that these constant arguments are a strain on your children, and they’re straining you, too. You’re tired of fighting with your spouse, so you want to divorce. Then, you can have a court help you build a parenting plan that works.
Divorcing with adopted children: Being supportive
It is true that you should be cautious when divorcing with adopted children. Depending on how old they were when they were adopted, this could be like losing a second set of parents. It’s very important that you and your spouse work with one another to decide on how to tell your children about the divorce and that you come together as a combined front to help them feel more secure throughout the process.
It isn’t easy to divorce with children, but divorcing with adopted children may be even more difficult. Be prepared to invest in the help of therapists and other professionals as you work out the problems affecting your divorce and start to guide your children through divorce.
