  • What Kids Need to Know - As we serve families in Raleigh, Durham and surrounding areas in North Carolina, we see children who may need some reinforcement that the divorce is not their fault. In fact, we have talked to other lawyers, judges, parents, teachers, psychologists and kids to put together some things for children to remember as they go through this big change in their life.
  • When You Get in Trouble at School - Almost all children whose parents are divorcing or divorced experience negative emotions such as anger, confusion, guilt or loss.  The effects of divorce on children statistics and research show that the first year after the divorce is the hardest. These feelings can drive them to misbehave at school. Haas & Associates, P.A. gathered a list of things children can do if they get in trouble at school, reminding them to be polite and to ask for their parent or caretaker to be called. If children can stop and think about the effects of divorce on children and the family, they may realize that their actions are tied to unresolved feelings about the divorce.
