Getting a Divorce and Keeping Your Sanity


Going through a divorce is no walk in the park. From the time you decide you are getting a divorce until the final court proceedings, the whole thing can be quite nerve wracking. With a few tips, though, you can get through this troubling time and keep your wits about you.

Be tactful with your initial approach. The way you tell your spouse that you want a divorce will set the tone for the divorce proceedings. For instance, do not approach your spouse in front of a group of friends and embarrass him or her with the bad news. Instead, tell your spouse how much you care for them and how special they are. Then, proceed to tell them that you want a divorce and the reasons. Do this in a way that is thoughtful and loving.

Hire a good therapist. Splitting up, no matter if it is your idea or your spouse’s, is hard. You need to talk with a person who is objective and can help you deal with what you are going through.

Find a reputable lawyer. These days, you do not need to find a lawyer that is a good fighter. Every state in the United States now has “no-fault divorces”. This does not require the court to find one of the spouses guilty of wrongdoing.

Instead, hire a lawyer that will be able to solve problems, advise you about your rights and responsibilities, and fight for what is right. Ask those you trust to refer you to a reputable lawyer.

Do not hide your assets. It is important to put all of your assets on the table. If not, the judge may not rule in your favor and you could lose everything like Denise Rossi who won $1.3 million in the lottery before filing for divorce.

Avoid court. You should do your best to work through your divorce without going to court. You can hire a mediator to help you get through it. If you go to court, the divorce proceedings will likely take much longer and cost a lot more. In California, there is such a backlog, that you will likely wait at least six months for a trial date.

Make a punch list. As the divorce is wrapping up, work with your spouse to make a punch list. This should contain all the last minute tasks that should be completed before the divorce is final. Wait until everything is complete and do not pay your final lawyer’s fee until the final divorce judgment is filed.

There’s no doubt that going through a divorce is very hard. Follow the tips here and you can keep your sanity while going making a major life change.

I hired Howard Iken as my attorney to handle my divorce case. Not only did he secure a win for me in the eventual divorce trial, he was also successful in having the post divorce trial petitions (4) filed by my ex-husband dismissed. Mr. Iken is very professional and adept at developing strategies that are favorable to his clients. He is organized, thorough, creative and more than willing to go the extra mile. I would highly recommend Mr. Iken’s law firm to anyone seeking legal services.
