Divorce is a challenging situation for any adult. Even if you wanted the split, you are probably going to have some difficulties to deal with. During the process of dividing property and working through child custody, you might feel stressed. There are several things you can do that can help you feel a bit calmer as you go through this.
We know that you might have some questions about what’s possible in your case. We can help you evaluate the options so that you can make decisions based on the facts. If you are going through mediation, you might find that some of the compromises aren’t what you expected. Going into the process with an open mind and being willing to compromise can benefit you greatly.
Before you go into a session to move the divorce forward, you need to think about what points you are willing to bend on and which ones you are going to stand firm on. This makes it possible to focus on what you feel is important. Just remember that you might also have to work out an agreement on those matters. We are ready to help you evaluate various options during this process.
One thing that you do need to prepare for is that you can’t focus on what you want during the child custody mediation. Instead, you have to think about what’s best for your children. Their needs are what the court is going to look at. We can work with you to discuss how various options might work and how they may be perceived by the court.
