Only you and your spouse really know for sure what caused the irreparable problems in your marriage. Whether you were the one who filed for divorce or the one who did nothing to contest your spouse's petition, there will no doubt be numerous issues you must resolve before you can leave the past behind and get on with your life. If you're a parent, such issues will, of course, include child-related matters, such as custody, visitation or support.
When you obtained your divorce decree, you may not have thought ahead far enough to consider the implications your new lifestyle might have on your family life during summer. As a parent, you undoubtedly want what is best for your kids. You understood from the get-go that your decision to sever your marital ties would greatly affect your children's lives; however, you were hopeful that they'd be able to cope just fine as long as you were there to show your love and support.
