If you getting a
separation or a divorce, and you are setting out to find a new place to live, then
you may be feeling overwhelmed with not only leaving what was your home,
but with needing to find a new home for you and your children. As daunting
a task as it may be, here are some ways to make it easier on you so that
you and your family can make as smooth a transition as possible.
First of all, organize everything; a plan could be the key to success.
This could look like setting an hourly/daily schedule for clearing rooms
out. Then, while it might slow you down at first while you pack, marking
boxes will help you when everything has to come back out; label the box
by room and item type (especially the box that will have the things you
need immediately, like pajamas and toothbrushes).
At your new home, safety comes first. You should change all the locks in
the new place; not only could previous home owners have the keys, but
so too could neighbors, or gardeners or…in reality there is no
telling who has else access to the place. Err on the side of caution by
making sure you and your kids are the only ones with keys to your new home.
Finally, you can get to know your new area and having some much-needed
fun while doing so (and if you are in almost the same neighborhood, treat
yourself and your children to a fun night out anyway). Not only can this
be a necessary break, but you can familiarize you and your family to the
new place. You can do it on a dime too if you find the right sites or
go off of a coupon book. In fact, the ENTERTAINMENT® Coupon Book has
coupons specifically for single parents.

relocation proceedings, then you need to find a dedicated Long Island divorce attorney who can
