Common themes and issues typically arise when parties decide to separate. It’s important for clients to be aware of these themes to avoid stepping into divorce “potholes” that can complicate your experience, causing unnecessary financial, emotional, and mental health consequences.
Many people going through a divorce or so afraid of the unknown they try to convince themselves that it’s better to stay married, regardless of how unhealthy their marriage is. Typical sources of this fear are the effect on your children and financial stressors. Despite your concerns, it’s important to know that they are normal.
Divorce is Emotional
When couples decide to separate, it is common to experience grief, pain, confusion, and fear. Over time these emotions will ease and allow you to transition until the next phase in your life.
Low self-esteem can contribute to depression and desperation, causing many people to rush into a relationship with the first person who pays attention to you following your separation. It is wise to deal with the issues surrounding your divorce and easing your familial transition rather than rushing into new relationships.
Remember Divorce is a Business Transaction
In many divorces, emotions arising from the reason for separation can interfere with the negotiation process. Anger can prevent parties from thinking rationally thus taking stances that may not be practical. This can ultimately result in unnecessary attorney litigation and attorney fees.
