If you are a father who is going through a divorce, you have reason to feel apprehensive about what the future holds regarding your relationship with your children. You may worry that living apart will dramatically alter the bonds between you and your children. But if you can get the right custody terms, you have a good chance of maintaining your status in your children’s lives.
Hopefully, you are in a situation where your soon-to-be ex-spouse is amenable to your custody plans. If not, you could be facing some added tribulations before getting matters resolved. Unfortunately, fathers must frequently spend extra time and money when seeking their custodial rights. But no matter what complications may arise, you should remind yourself what is really at stake.
You are an important part of your child’s growth and development, regardless of your family’s living arrangements. There is nothing that can fully replace the life lessons that you can provide. It is very likely that your child has many of your personality traits. As such, you can relate to him or her in a manner that no one else can, not even their mother. Simply put, it is almost certainly in your child’s best interests to have you in his or her life.
