How to parent during divorce: Virginia attorneys advise

By September 13, 2018 No Comments

Full of practical advice from Virginia divorce attorneys, judges and law professors, this acclaimed video offers advice to parents on how to co-parent during the divorce process.

The goal? To minimize the negative impact of divorce on children.

“Maybe you didn’t get along as husband and wife, but you can still get along as Mom and Dad for these children. And I think that’s really what parents have to remember–that’s their role during this time,” advises Nichols Zauzig Sandler Partner Cassandra Chin who, along with other members of the Virginia State Bar Family Law Section, is featured in and helped created the video a few years ago. Its message resonates today.

Also in the film are several adult children of divorced parents whose comments are both moving and insightful.

Retired Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court Judge Angela Roberts, who was three years old when her parents divorced, shares how she remembers the day she was told the news. “Make sure you understand what memories you are making for your child in this process,” she recommends.

The video was made possible through a generous grant from the Virginia Law Foundation and with assistance from the Virginia State Bar staff and Park Group.
