3 Tips For Managing Divorce-Related Stress

Whether you have chosen to initiate divorce proceedings or you were blindsided by your spouse, one thing is always certain in divorce: it has the potential to become extremely stressful for all involved. 

No one can promise a stress-free divorce. Even spouses who look forward to life after divorce know there will be some rough spots as the process unfolds. The following tips can help you minimize those and keep your focus on moving forward to the next phase of your life. 

1. Carefully Consider Your Choice of Attorney

Friends mean well, and many may recommend one of their acquaintances who happens to be a lawyer. When it comes to complex divorce cases - particularly those involving retirement assets, real property, or business assets - not just any lawyer will do. It is important to make sure you choose a professional with the requisite level of experience and a track record of results. After all, you only get once chance to make sure things are handled correctly; an experienced attorney can provide you with peace of mind. 

2. Be Prepared

In the context of divorce, surprises equal stress. Being prepared for the road ahead can help you avoid the common pitfalls that lead to stressful experiences. An experienced lawyer can make sure you are prepared for all the possibilities that lie ahead. 

3. Ask Questions

Take the time to clarify your expectations as well as those of your attorney. Time is valuable, and that goes for both of you. Knowing the ground rules and expectations ahead of time can go a long way toward ensuring a process with the minimal amount of stress.
