Every couple faces unique challenges.
Understand how separation will affect you,
your children, your finances and your future.
If you want to have a ‘good divorce’ then you have to go to your partner and tell them HOW you feel and WHY you feel this way. Be truthful, be honest, share your feelings and be sure to give your partner space to share theirs.
While you’re communicating with your spouse, ask them if they want to save the relationship. Do YOU want to save the relationship? If there is room to fix it, then make every attempt possible.
If there is no room to fix the marriage, then tell your spouse that you want an Amicable Divorce. If you leave it to the court system, your divorce will not end happily.
Very often, people think that they had no part to play in the disintegration of a relationship….
You think it’s all one person’s fault?
That’s very unlikely.
But if that’s the attitude you come into the divorce with, in all likelihood, your divorce will be nasty.
It will also be nasty if you can’t communicate at all. Unfortunately, effective communication is one of the first things to go when we start talking about divorce. That’s a shame because communication is key to a good divorce.
Divorces also get ugly when one partner works really hard to build a case against the other. Very often, if children are involved, they bear the brunt of that case-building.
Don’t make it difficult for your spouse to divorce YOU! Give them access to the information that they need so they can do this swiftly and with the least amount of expense possible.
Remember, communicate about WHY the relationship ended and make sure you own your share of the responsibility. Doing this together, ending the relationship together will make moving on easier for both of you.
