Default Divorce and Wife and Kids under My Sponsorship

1- My Wife ans Kids are under my Sponsorship. Incase of Divorcing and there will be for sure Child Custody issues? Would I have the right to cancel her Sponsorship.

2- Can my Wife open a business under my sponsorship? We currently own a business and work together, but she is thinking of opening her own and compete.

I guess I'm feeling a little thick today........On the one hand you are asking if you have the right to cancel your wife's sponsorship in case of divorce then on the other you are asking if she can open a business with you as sponsor?

While Currently MArried and under my sponsorship, can she open her own business? I dont want to cancel her sponsorship, even if things get terrible, she is still the mother of my kids.

My son turn 8 and my daughter is 6, so Im sure we would probably have a custody battle.

Not sure about the business part. But why would there have to be a custody battle? Why not just agree to joint custody and have things amicable, otherwise the only people who lose out are the children - and that's not fair. You put the children first.

I'm divorced, with children. My kids were about the same age when we separated.

Swallow what ever pride you have left and do everything in your power to make it amicable. Learn very quickly to shut your mouth and let all the BS slide off you. The children will suffer greatly if you don't.

Take the higher road and the children will see it. Be their rock, be positive with them about their mother, they will need it and in turn respect you for it.

Been there, done that. It won't be easy for any of you. And, it's going to cost you financially everything. Three years on now, things are finally better for us. Tread lightly is my advice.

I don't believe she can stay sponsored by you after divorce. Your kids can, but probably need her permission to do so.

If she starts her own company, couldn't she sponsor herself? You will have to agree on the kids sponsorship I expect.

Care to elaborate, or is it just your usual swing at Chocoholic?

xchaos gives some fantastic advice and the children aren't really of an age to understand what would be going on, so anything you can do to keep things as 'normal' for them, the better really.

From experience, the children understand far more than you think. Essentially, though, an attack on either parent...verbally...is an attack on how they perceive themselves.

They will see, hear, and understand everything...and as they mature, will evaluate your actions on their own.

Being a good parent is not about forcing your will because you feel you can be a better parent than the other. You will have to accept a different situation...and you can't protect them emotionally always. You have to be consistent, calm, and open to listen and talk to them. They will express to you what they are feeling only if you allow yourself to listen...and not get defensive or offensive about their other parent.

Your objective is to give them the tools they need to cope... I am far closer to my children now because I was able to realize this early on...and I assure you it was very very hard in my situation to meter my comments about certain situations they were going through.
