When your marriage comes to an end, it can be a devastating and emotionally difficult experience. You and your soon-to-be ex-spouse might have a lot of bitter and unresolved feelings or anger, but it is still possible to make this divorce as simple as possible to avoid further heartache.
Here are some tips on how to have a smoother and simpler divorce:
- Cooperate: Of course, this is not an easy situation, but you should never aim to make it harder. Oftentimes, people tend to think of divorce as a battle. If you are interested in a pricey, complex, and drawn-out divorce, then a battle might be the right way to describe it, but chances are, you would rather have an inexpensive and simple divorce. Therefore, try not to look at this like a war you are trying to win and try to cooperate with your spouse as you field your way through the various issues that need to be addressed.
- Mediation: Divorce litigation tends to lend itself to a contentious and hostile dynamic between spouses. Consider mediation as an alternative. Mediation allows both parties to have more control over the outcome of their divorce and you are more likely to obtain a settlement that both of you are comfortable with without having to hash it out in a courtroom. If you have children, the process of mediation will allow you to learn how to communicate more effectively, setting the foundation for the two of you as co-parents. You can even prepare a script to work from if you are worried about your emotions getting the best of you.
- Focus on the Big Picture: Throughout your divorce, there are going to be plenty of things to fight over, but the fact is that not everything matters. Focus on the big picture and try not to haggle over little things that will not have an impact on you in the long run. Doing so will only take up more time, which means more expenses.
