Richardson child custody attorneys may spend a lot of time with children and their parents when dealing with a child custody case. Many of these cases can be trying, especially when the case involves a child with special needs.
The divorce process is a difficult time for spouses, and for their children. It may be especially difficult for special needs children that do not understand what is happening and why their family unit, and possibly their environment, is changing.
To hopefully lessen the burden a bit, you might consider doing your best to keep the environment at home as unchanged as possible. Some consistency may be helpful during this time.
In an AllExperts.com entry, Dr. Sharon Mitchell, who manages the AutismSite.ca website, recommended to one parent with an autistic child who was going through a divorce that consistency may entail several things.
Even if locations are different, she mentions consistency of daily schedule or routine such as eating at certain times and taking toys or other items from one place to the next.
She also mentions maintaining a good relationship with your ex-spouse, at least while in the company of the child. If you and your spouse are having disagreements about child custody or anything else, try to have them away from the child.
