On behalf of Tasha K. Schaffner of Schaffner Family Law posted in divorce on Wednesday, August 10, 2016.
The end of a marriage is difficult in many ways, even before the legal papers have been filed. When a husband or wife knows that divorce is coming at some point in the future, it is in his or her best interests to prepare for what lies ahead. Financial and emotional preparations can not only make the divorce process easier in Kentucky and elsewhere, but it can also help avoid unnecessary disputes.
Emotional preparation is a necessary step, even for a couple that is resolved to remain amicable during a divorce. A parent must prepare children for what lies ahead, allowing them the time to adjust and even grieve in their individual ways. One of the best ways to protect the kids before, during and after divorce is to allow them continued contact with both parents in order to maintain strong relationships.
People often cite finances as one of their main concerns during a divorce. The foundation for a strong post-divorce future can be laid with careful preparation before and during a divorce. When a person knows what to expect and has reasonable expectations, it can spare an individual and a couple difficulties during the already complex process of ending a marriage.
Kentucky readers may be expecting to divorce or already be in the divorce process, but they do not have to face it alone. An experienced family law attorney can help them prepare for what is ahead and seek an outcome that is both beneficial and sustainable long into the future. Preparation and support are the keys to effectively navigating a divorce.
