The divorce takes time. You should focus on one relationship at a given time. Don't try to do too much in one go. Be patient. Keep in mind that when dating someone else, you are adding another human being into the mix. This means that your new partner may influence how you think and act in a way that detains you from having an amicable divorce. When working out a divorce, it's important to be respectful to your soon-to-ex spouse as well as limit any distractions that aren't professionals from interfering with your efforts.

Understanding your spouse's viewpoint and being reasonable are absolute requirements for an effective divorce.

Think before reacting impulsively to triggers such as text messages or emails from your spouse.

Right from the start, it's vital to determine and write your goals for the divorce before diving into the process. If you're setting out to win everything you'll most likely end up in a nasty battle and feel negatively charged or even end in litigation. A peaceful and successful divorce relies on both parties working together to reach a mutual benefit resolution - not a one-sided one. Financial goals include saving money and paying off debts. Personal goals include improving relationships with friends and family.

Divorce is expensive. Money is a common reason why people break up, but it shouldn’t be a sticking point during an amicable divorce. Being completely transparent about your financial situation right away could save you money down the road. Avoid hiding assets or secret moves of funds from a joint account into your one. Instead, list all your balances in a clean spreadsheet as accurately and thoroughly as possible. Financial planning should start early in life. Your future needs should be considered when you're young. You may need to separate your finances before you get married. You might need to consider paying spousal support if you plan to stay together after a divorce. There may be debt you'd like to pay off while still being married. You might need help deciding how much money to set aside for retirement.

Divorce is always painful. But when you know why you want to end a marriage, it is much easier to move forward. You can focus on the things that matter, such as your children and personal happiness.

Divorce is very hard on everyone involved. You need to make sure you do everything right. You must put your mind to this process. Be patient as it takes time to get things done. Focus on your personal life while working on your marriage.

While you may have spent lots of time preparing for your divorce, there are still many things to do before you get divorced. There are also a lot of details to consider when scheduling meetings with your lawyer or mediator. Your attorney will need to prepare documents and other materials for you to sign. Also, you will need to make sure you have enough money to cover the costs associated with your divorce.

Don’t rush yourself through important decisions. It is crucial to be thorough and to be precise here. Even in mediation sessions, it is encouraged to take breaks to rest your mind and allow yourself to breathe. If you‘ve come to a sticking place, take some time to walk away or consult your lawyer to stay aligned with your goal. Patience will permit me to remain focused and emotionally accessible to confidently move forward with these proceedings in a cordial fashion.

Don’t compare your marriage to others because every divorce case is unique. Your friends and family can give you some advice but they can also make you feel worse about your situation. Social media can be a tempting place to vent your frustrations but you should avoid comparing yourself to others who may be having a much easier time. You need to focus on what you want to get out of this process and how you can make it work for you.

Client Reviews
Selecting an attorney can be one of the most difficult decisions a person has to make. In what seems like an overwhelming sea of attorneys who do you choose? Are they qualified, compassionate, and are they willing to fight for you without compromising their integrity? When faced with this decision in 2016 I received this and more when I retained Rahlita Thornton as my attorney. Since 2016 she has represented me on several court cases and I've never been disappointed. She is well versed and very knowledgeable on many aspects of the law. Attorney Thornton and her staff work diligently to ensure no stone is left unturned and justice is served. When I was crippled with fear, bullied, and felt like giving up she was my voice. She is highly recommend and I'm truly blessed to have her in my life. TTW
