Benefits of Counseling Prior to Your Divorce

Professional counseling with a therapist before your divorce could offer the following benefits:

Improved communication between the estranged spouses: In many cases, someone contemplating or going through a divorce may be unable to talk things out cordially with the other spouse. This is when therapy helps in teaching constructive conversation methodology.

Rational discussion on vital issues: When the someone is  primed to have reasonable discussion with the other party, they are able to go through the divorce process more sensibly. It may not be the ideal solution to the problem, but if divorce is the inevitable solution, then might as well do it smartly.

Prioritizing children’s welfare: No matter how bad things are between couples, it should never be the reason to scar the children for life. If parents can’t work things out between themselves, the therapist helps in making the divorce less hard for the children.

Going through divorce proceedings with minimum friction: Divorcing couples are likely to have disagreement over many things as they go through the process. With professional counseling, our clients can minimize the friction, and make the divorce less taxing for both sides.


Child Custody Evaluation

Independent child custody assessments are necessary for the judge to make a final custody decision in a separation, annulment, separate maintenance judgment, or case of custody involving unwed parents.

It is the judge’s prerogative to demand independent child custody assessment in order to determine whether any psychological harm has occurred to the child and why. The emotional turbulence experienced by a child could be a result of domestic violence, drug abuse, abandonment, meddling with the other parent’s time with the child, and so on.

The mental health professionals (as autonomous child custody assessors) are tasked with the responsibility of evaluating the parents and family in order to determine which parent should have the custody correlating with the best interests of the child.
