TIPS

Your life is difficult enough when preparing for a divorce. Based on our experience, we have three tips that will help get you more smoothly through the divorce process.

1. STRIVE FOR A REASONABLE PROCESS::
Make a decision to do your best to contribute to a smooth and reasonable divorce process. In practice, this means not reacting immediately to the statements of your ex-partner that irritate you. It might mean resisting the urge to send that hurtful email or sarcastic WhatsApp message. It also requires a commitment to not make accusations against your ex-partner.

2. KNOW WHAT YOU WANT:
Carefully consider what you want “to get out of your divorce”. This isn’t necessarily the same as what is “rightfully yours”. It can take years to get what you are entitled to, but will it be worth it? If you were to reach a point when you achieve what you want, would you then be willing to abandon the battle? Determine what it is that you want and aim for making agreements that you can be satisfied with.

3.DON’T LISTEN TO OTHERS:
While it can feel good to exchange experiences with others who have been through divorce, be aware: every divorce is different and each personal situation is unique. Don’t simply assume that the experiences of others will apply to you. Instead, check with your attorney if they are accurate.
