Three Things That Can Get You Through a Divorce

Three Things That Can Get You Through a Divorce

Posted By Meyers Law Group, P.C. || 10-Feb-2014

If a divorce is in your near future, you know that you are looking at a stressful, painful process. And while that is unfailingly true, there are ways to come out of the process with the financial setup and emotional health that you need to create a brighter future. As you head into a divorce, here are three things to do that can help you get the divorce and post-divorce life you need and deserve.

One of them is to have work, a job that pays enough for you to cover the costs of living, even if at lower standards than you are used to. It is incredibly freeing to know that you can support yourself, able to make rent, feed your kids, pay the bills, etc. If for whatever reason, you have been out of the workforce or underemployed, such as to care for children, to do freelance work, to pursue education, etc. then one of the biggest things you can do to prepare for a better future and a more successful divorce is to find work.

Secondly, you need to create a divorce team. Of course, this will include your divorce attorney, an experienced and skilled legal advocate, one who can take on a litigated divorce and who can also facilitate a peaceful divorce mediation, depending on the process you need. But divorce is more than a legal process. You will also need your support group of relatives, friends, maybe a therapist to help you sort through everything that is going on in your life. And then you might also need financial help, such as accountants and financial planners.

Finally, you should aim for as amicable a divorce as possible. While it is not always possible to avoid a divorce trial, such as in situations where there has been mental illness, domestic violence, or substance abuse, you do want to save yourself as much time, anguish, and legal fees as possible. You want to retain the power to make the decisions in your life and not delegate this to a stranger who has the authority to mandate a less-than-best game plan for your life. Ideally, you can find the peaceful resolution you deserve through divorce mediation, or even an uncontested divorce.
