You need to maintain a good relationship with your children this time.
Divorce can be an emotional and financial burden. If you have a child support to pay, you must manage your finances in such a way that you don’t fall into debts. Thus, you need to get out of your current unsecured and secured debts first. Maintain a budget that you can follow to make these payments fast. If you want to file divorce, then you have to set aside money to manage child support payment. Another important thing is managing children in divorce.

Remember, during or after the divorce, you can face financial strain.  You should try not to lose your temper while dealing with children. Maintain your cool with your children. Try not to discuss child support or money problems that may scar their childhood forever. 

Take a look at the ways you can manage your money as well as children in a divorce:

1. Allow your children to decide their stay

This is a nice try to make them think and act like adults. If you force them to take sides, then they may feel pestered and tormented. Leave them as they are and if they are more inclined toward your spouse, let them be. That must not affect your child support as you may face charges if you default in child support payment. Respect them, love them, and allow them to decide on their own. Since they’re children and have the right to stay where they want, don’t force your decisions on them.

2. Don’t misbehave with your children

The divorce can cost you a lot and you may lose the love and respect from your relationship. Remember, the bitterness is not created by your children. So, love them and be patient with them. If you always discuss money problems with them, they can feel themselves helpless. So, if you’re with them, try to make everything fine and make them feel happy at home. Don’t fight with your spouse in front of them. They can feel that they’re the reason for their parent’s unhappiness.

3. Be a strong parent

This is a very important point that most parents miss. If you act as one, you can overcome any problems. Try to control your emotions in front of them so that they don’t become depressed. Try not to get angry and depressed in front of them. Visit your children at the scheduled time so that they know that you care for them. Fulfill their smallest wishes by remembering their birthdays or taking them to a park.

Lastly, create an affordable budget so that you don’t fall into debts to pay for child support. Always remember, it’s for the good of your children and as a responsible parent. Be a role model to help your children to grow a responsible human being.
