Divorce Tips for an Amicable Split

Huffington Post writer John McElhenney outlined his experiences with divorce and how to maintain an amicable relationship with your ex-spouse through it all, especially if you have kids.

First, the welfare of the children should be considered the most important. The money always comes second. In Texas, 85 percent of divorce cases end up with the mom getting physical custody of the children and the father receiving non-custodial status, which usually means he must pay child support and the child’s health insurance. Although you may not agree on exactly how to divide shared assets and debts, remember that the children are more important than the money, and it’s important not to become contentious over small matters.

Last of all, McElhenney stresses that it is the attitude of the parents that will determine how the divorce goes and how the children will react to it.
