Is it really over ... Planning for Divorce in Albemarle, NC

Is it really over ... Planning for Divorce in Albemarle, NC

Here are ten steps to consider if you are seeking a fresh start on your own:

1. Set the stage. To make this unpleasant process go as smoothly as possible be cordial and reasonable in all dealings with your spouse. Pay attention to your tone of voice, and body language. This will do the least emotional damage, and you stand a better chance of achieving your long-term goals.

2. Prepare for the aftermath. In the event you may have to move out of your current home, have a rough plan for where you, and your children, will live. Do whatever is necessary to secure their safety, and yours.


3. Help your children cope. Have an honest, re-assuring talk with your children to help them understand how their lives will be affected by the divorce. Think about what to say, how much to say, and how to say it.

4. Manage your emotions. It is important that you have a good support system to help you through this emotionally draining period. Find a few trusted family members and friends, or, even a therapist, for when you need a sounding board, or a shoulder to cry on.


5. Hold off on dating. It is unwise to start a new relationship in the midst of a divorce, especially if there are children involved. In some states, the presence of someone new before you finalize your divorce can have legal consequences; probably not for the better.

6. Have a nest egg. Open your own personal bank account, with enough money to live on for at least three months. In addition, establish credit in your name, and have exclusive access to at least one credit card in case of an emergency.

7. Set up a post office box. You will need a safe mailing address as you embark on a new life. Set up a post office box, and have all legal, financial, and sensitive information sent to you there.
