Even though your divorce may be finalized, your work is not over for your children. It is vital that both you and your former spouse continue to take an active part in your children’s lives to help them grow and develop. This will have a significant impact on their emotional development going forward. Talk to your Danbury family lawyer to find out how you can minimize the impact of your divorce on your children.

Constant Contact

Keep in constant and continuing contact with your children. Both parents should continue to be visible and frequent presences in their children’s lives so that they feel wanted and cared for. It should go without saying, but keep contact pleasant and fun as much as possible for your sake as much as your children’s. Even if your relationship with your spouse is strained, your Danbury family lawyer will advise you to try to find common ground to stay positive around the children.

Make Use of Your Time

A good way to keep the children engaged and productive is to make sure they are responsible as well as having fun. Do chores such as grocery shopping or laundry with them so they feel like a presence in your life. Go to fun places such as the park or the beach. Your Danbury family lawyer will advise you to try to make new memories and rituals with them so that they appreciate the role you play in their lives.

Client Reviews


I had been arrested for driving while under suspension for DUI, which carries a mandatory minimum 30 days in jail. In spite of the objections from the prosecutor, Attorney Shalvoy was able to convince the Judge to waive the jail term and only imposed a fine.
