How to Stay Calm During the Divorce Process in New York
Even if you are just beginning to consider divorce, the thought of divorce is stressful enough. You may not be sure yet if divorce is the route you want to take, however, the more informed you are, the easier your decision will be. You may not have all the answers, however, it helps to talk to a New York Divorce Mediator who does. Contact Sabra Sasson today for a Divorce Discovery Session.
There are some steps you can take to keep your divorce as peaceful as possible. Once you have decided to divorce your spouse, the first step will be to break the bad news to them in a respectful manner. It is best to do this in private when the children are not around. Furthermore, it will go over more smoothly if you personally break the news, instead of having your lawyer break the news. If your spouse learns that there is already an attorney involved they may become defensive or feel betrayed and that may lead to a more contentious and more expensive divorce. This is especially true if you have not first communicated with them about your intentions to end the marriage.
The second step is to become well informed about your options regarding the divorce process in New York. It may be best to consult a New York Divorce Mediator or Divorce Attorney who can best advise you on your options. Lawyering up and heading to court is not your only option. The more information you have upfront, the easier it will be to make the right decision for you. There are so many considerations when it comes to divorce: child support, child custody, division of assets, selling the marital home, and much more and it can be too complicated to resolve on your own.
No matter how upset you are with your spouse, it is best to maintain your composure about the situation as best as you can. Have you heard this saying? When emotions are high, intelligence is low and when emotions are low, intelligence is high. By remaining calm and collected, you will be able to think more clearly and not let your emotions get in the way of making rational and important decisions.
There may even be times when your spouse is intentionally trying to upset you. It is important to stay calm even when you find it difficult to do so.
