Tips to simplify your divorce

divorceDivorce will never be easy, no matter what happens – and how well the spouses agree to terms. Divorces greatly vary one from the next, and it can be difficult to prepare yourself. Simplifying the divorce as much as possible should be your main goal. SplitSimple, a professional Chicago divorce mediation service notes that settling a divorce can often be sidetracked by retribution, anger, and even petty arguments. But if you want to simplify the process, you have to think about the following first.


Talk To A Divorce Attorney As Soon As Possible

An attorney needs to be contacted as soon as possible since legal help will surely be needed. The divorce attorney will take your personal needs into account, and will help with the largest part of the entire process. These specialists help in different ways, including the following:

  • Preparing the client for the divorce by letting him/her know everything about all the proceedings.
  • Offering answers to all questions that might be present.
  • Getting a proper dispute resolution.
  • Offering the best asset secure solution.
  • Minimizing mutual obligations.
  • Offering good solutions for temporary custody or child visitations.

In the event the divorce is going to court, the divorce attorney helps with the needed paperwork and conversations with the court.

Keep in mind that if you already have a divorce attorney and you think that you are not properly represented you have the right to sign a new divorce attorney. You choose who is going to help you in court so do not be afraid to be honest. Always work with someone that has your best interest in mind.


Talk With Family And Friends

Divorce is much simpler when you have support from your family and friends. You want to talk with all the people that you trust and love. That will offer you the possibility to reduce the stress that you feel. It will simply be a lot easier to cope with the divorce. When you are just locked inside your home and sob, the entire divorce is going to become hard to deal with.  You’ll need to tackle this head-on.

Alternatively, you can join special social groups and focus groups dedicated to people going through divorces. An attorney can help you find such groups if you have no idea how but you can also use the internet to locate them.


Mediators Help

We already hinted at mediation above but we should go a little deeper. The divorcing couples may have to make a joint decision about various different things, like what happens with children, businesses, homes and more. Mediators would be able to help out a lot with such difficult decisions because they are neutral parties that guide couples towards a mutual agreement. Mediators are cheaper than courts and are allowed to handle divorce issues and settlements when agreed by both parties involved.


Take Care Of Yourself

Last but not least, simplifying the divorce is often just about maintaining a clear, calm mind. Do things that you enjoy and be surrounded by friends. Stopping your life just leads to more stress and the divorce will become much harder to deal with.

Team of Destiny: Inside UVA Basketball's improbable run

Team of Destiny: Inside Virginia Basketball’s Run to the 2019 National Championship, by Jerry Ratcliffe and Chris Graham, is available for $25.

The book, with additional reporting by Zach Pereles, Scott Ratcliffe and Scott German, will take you from the aftermath of the stunning first-round loss to UMBC in 2018, and how coach Tony Bennett and his team used that loss as the source of strength, through to the ACC regular-season championship, the run to the Final Four, and the thrilling overtime win over Texas Tech to win the 2019 national title, the first in school history.


Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
