How to Have a Less Stressful Divorce

For most families, divorce can be an extremely stressful process. Regardless of why you and your spouse are divorcing, there are steps you can take to ensure the process is less stressful. Many people enter their divorce with the reactive mind, which can make things more chaotic and more emotional. If you enter your divorce as a proactive member, you, your Rancho Cucamonga divorce attorney and your soon-to-be-ex, will have a much easier time dissolving your marriage.

Below are some tips for a less stressful divorce:

  • Set goals for your divorce process - Divorce can an expensive, drawn out process if you allow it to be. Before you begin, set goals for yourself. Get a planner or designate a notebook where you plan to write down your divorce goals. Do you have a timeline in which you wish your divorce to be resolved? Write down that timeline and the steps you need to take get yourself on that timeline. Make lists of the documents you need to gather for your Rancho Cucamonga divorce lawyer and set “due by” dates for yourself.
  • Don’t allow friends and family to influence your decision process – Talking to your friends about your divorce is natural. You are going through an emotional time in your life; it is very human to need to reach out for the support of your friends and family. While support from friends and family is good, you should not let it influence the decisions you make in your divorce. If you are unsure of a decision you are about to make, consider discussing it with your divorce lawyer. At Chung & Ignacio, LLP we have helped many clients in various situations, and we are happy to provide our clients with legal advice regarding their divorce options.
  • Make a list of what you want out of your divorce – Dissolving a marriage also means splitting up the property of one family into two. One way to ensure you have less stress during your divorce is to take inventory of all your property. Once you have completed this, write down a list of things you would like to keep after the divorce. If you find the list is long, number each item by priority.
