Going through a divorce or separation can be an emotional and intense time in your life. In many cases, stress comes from not knowing what to expect, the fear of the unknown, and a sudden change in your lifestyle. This guide will provide you with tips to help make the process less daunting.
Accept that this is happening
Acceptance is the first step to help ease feelings of anger and resentment. Meditating and practicing mindfulness will automatically begin to change your mindset. Focus on what you can control and on what makes you happy.
Seek out a lawyer
With all the swirling emotions you may be experiencing, it’s beneficial to have somebody by your side to help with the practical and important issues. Find a lawyer who you can trust and who can help you understand the process and everything you have to do to protect yourself.
Make copies of all of your important documents such as tax returns, credit card bills, loans, bank statements, mortgage statements etc. Be sure to track your assets, including bank accounts, bonds, stocks, jewelry etc.
Make it easy for your children
Divorce is stressful for everyone involved, but making it as smooth as possible for your children is so important. Don’t speak negatively about your ex spouse around your children, and invite your children to talk to you about their feelings.
