The words “civil” and “divorce” in the same sentence don’t always come to mind right away. But divorcing without fighting is quite possible, even if it is something both spouses don’t agree on.
1. Take care of your health and well being during the divorce. The stress of divorce cannot only take a toll on the body, but being unhealthy can make one irritable and easily annoyed, which could result in arguments between you and your ex-spouse.
2. Get help with your emotions from a therapist or a friend or family member that will listen and comfort you. By channeling your emotions elsewhere, you decrease the risk of taking them out on your soon-to-be-ex.
3. Always remember that divorce is a transition and not a way of life that is permanent. The emotions will pass, the stress will decrease. You’re not going to feel this way forever, and once you get through the emotional hurdles that divorce brings, it will be better.
4. Educate yourself about divorce and the process. Surprise divorce lawyers at The Sampair Group treat every divorce individually, paying attention to the circumstances of each case while helping clients through the process without “legalspeak” and defining the process in a way each client can understand.
5. Avoid making sudden or hasty decisions about your life, such as lifestyle changes, finances, children or family. Know that even though you are getting divorced, if there are children involved then your ex-spouse must still be involved in decisions you make that will affect them.
The divorce process can no doubt be overwhelming and stressful, so in order for a divorce to be civil, it takes a lot of self control and hard work from both parties.
