According to research at University of Alberta, children whose parents have divorced are more likely to dropout of school.

We are family law, divorce, and custody attorneys, we don’t pretend to be child behaviorists, psychologists or anthropologists, but this is pretty obvious.  One of the things we stress is that you and your spouse are divorcing.   Unless there are compelling reasons to the contrary, it is typically in the children’s’ best interest,both logically and in the eyes of the court, to isolate them as much as possible from the divorce, agree, agree to disagree, and work together in the children’s best interest both before the divorce, through the divorce, and after the marriage dissolution.

Obviously, when there are issues of violence or neglect, or other mitigating factors, a different tactic both in working with your former spouse, and in framing your divorce and custody agreements, would likely be appropriate.
