Heading Into a Divorce?
As you can probably imagine, most people heading into a divorce experience a combination of fear, shock, denial, anger, and resentment. Almost everyone in this situation at one time or another fears being alone; fears having failed; fears losing custody of the children; fears financial insecurity; and just basically fears the unknown. Getting caught up in a vicious cycle of fear-based thinking can make it nearly impossible to make the necessary business-like decisions that must be made in a divorce. We are here to help you put these fears aside so you can make well reasoned decision for your future and for the future of your children.
One of the worst mistakes you can make during the divorce process is letting your emotions get the best of you and then failing to educate yourself. Lack of knowledge can lead to a poor result in your divorce, and this isn't good for your children, your finances or your future.
Whatever you fear most has no power - it is your fear that has the power.
In a relatively short period of time you will have to find the emotional strength to make clearheaded decisions while dealing with the overwhelming feelings that go along with the end of your family unit. You are about to be barraged with questions like the following:
- How will I get by on only one income?
- How will we split our assets?
- How can I take on any of the family debt on one income?
- Who will get the family home?
- How will I deal with the social stigma of a failed marriage?
- What parenting plan is best for our family?
- How will my children cope?
- How will I face the loss of time with my children?
