Top Five Ways to Make Your Divorce Easier

Divorce can be one of the most difficult times in your life – it can take its toll on you emotionally, physically, and financially. In fact, there are few things in life that can create more stress and disharmony than a divorce. When a family comes apart, there are many different feelings that you are likely working through. However, working through a divorce doesn’t have to be traumatic. In fact, you should consider trying these five actions that can help make the divorce easier for you and your family.
Stay Focused
It is important to focus on getting through your divorce, no matter how tough it may seem to be. An experienced divorce attorney will help guide you through the process and keep your uncoupling on track. You can count on your attorney to handle the legal details of your divorce while you focus on emotional healing, and on rebuilding your life. A stalled divorce can be difficult for everyone, so keep the process moving along.
Be Fair
In Florida, any asset acquired during the marriage is considered marital property, and therefore must be divided equitably between spouses in a divorce. It will typically do little to properly resolve your divorce when parties are being unfair. Unfairness will be met with pushback, and the result will be a lengthy, difficult, and tense divorce. Trust in your attorney and their ability to handle even the most difficult of disagreements.
Think of the Children
If you are having a tough time with the divorce, consider what the children may be going through. Your children need to be loved and protected during this difficult time. Be aware of doing anything that could emotionally damage. Remember to keep your children out from the middle of the spousal disagreements. Set up a stable “new normal” for your family that includes them spending time with your former spouse.
Avoid Negativity
It is important to keep a positive attitude as much as possible. Negativity will only become a distraction and can add to your stress as well as the stress of your family. Avoid any temptation to lash out at your spouse and do not try to trash him or her to others. You both know how to push each other’s buttons, but keep in mind that you do not have to respond, especially when it serves no helpful purpose.
Seek Counseling
There is nothing heroic about getting through a divorce alone. Sometimes, the best thing you can do for yourself, and your children, is to seek counseling. The sooner you begin to deal with your feelings, the more quickly you will be able to move on from the relationship and find happiness. While counseling may not have worked for you and your spouse as a couple, you are now free to work through your own emotions, which will help you get past the divorce so you can go forward. If your children seem to be having a hard time with the changes, you may also want to take them to counseling.
If you are about to go through a divorce don’t do it alone. Contact the Tampa divorce attorneys and bankruptcy lawyers at All Family Law Group, P.A. in Tampa Bay at 813-816-2232 for a consultation at no charge or email us.

  1. Before coming across the advice on http://Prophetakeem.webs.com/ my marriage was in serious danger of heading towards divorce. Now we are in a better place than we ever were before! I feel very lucky and blessed that we were able to turn our marriage around like this. My husband used to spend as much time as he could away from home. Now we are so in love and its funny now he had to go away for the week we have been talking on the phone every day. We can't wait to see each other again! If you want to stop your divorce, you totally can!! Don't give up on love!
