Marriages end for any number of reasons and when they do they cause tremendous emotional turmoil. The break down in communication can lead to costly legal battles that no one really wants.
The choice to file for divorce is rarely an easy one. Suddenly, you find yourself facing numerous legal questions that you need to sort out. When you're a homeschool parent who has been out of the workforce for years, financial fears can also easily up your stress level.
Consulting with an attorney is critical to making sure your rights are maintained and your children are protected. Since you'll be paying an attorney by the hour, it's helpful to understand some of the basic issues so you can prepare a list of questions that relate to the specifics of your family's situation.
Maryland Hand In Hand Homeschool works with attorneys to help them better understand the nature of homeschooling and why it is in the best of interest of the children to continue along this educational journey. We also work with divorcing parents to develop strategy and negotiation skills that will ultimately benefit the children's home education. Contact Maryland Hand In Hand Homeschool to discuss how we can be of assistance to you.
