Mediation: improving communication during your divorce and beyond

Even though effective communication plays such a critical role in ensuring a fair divorce settlement, spouses in Montana may find it next to impossible to sit down to a calm, rational discussion. According to the American Psychological Association, one way to neutralize the extreme emotions often present during a divorce is to undergo mediation

Easing the stress of divorce

After having "the talk," hiring attorneys and negotiating a settlement, a Montana couple may believe that they have their divorce under control. However, the stress of ending the relationship goes far beyond the divorce paperwork. According to Psych Central, divorce brings self-doubt, fear and past issues to the forefront, and finding ways to cope with these can help relieve emotional stress and restore equilibrium.

Divorce as a newlywed couple

With divorce, each couple’s situation is unique. Some people opt to end their marriage after decades of marriage, while others may have decided that their marriage was not working out after less than a year of marriage. If you recently married your spouse and are considering divorce, or are already convinced that divorce is necessary, it is very important to approach your divorce case with care.

Preparing for a custody hearing

If you are a parent who is considering splitting up with your spouse or you are already in the middle of the process of divorce, there are various concerns related to family law that you may have. For example, you could worry about child support payments or other divorce issues, such as property division. However, a dispute involving the custody of your child can be particularly tough to work for and you may be concerned about your ability to secure an outcome that is favorable for you and your child. If you will have to attend a custody hearing, it is pivotal to be prepared.

How can you stay productive in the workplace during a divorce?

If you have recently decided to separate from your spouse and pursue a divorce in Montana, chances are you have already begun experiencing the emotional turmoil that comes with such a significant change in a critical relationship. You may have already started making decisions about the direction of your future, but to achieve them, it is imperative that you remain focused and effective in your job. Fortunately, there are things you can do to keep perspective at work despite the inner conflict you have recently started to experience. 

Moving after your marriage ends

If you are preparing for your marriage to come to an end or have already split up with your spouse, many different issues may be in front of you, from child support to the emotional impact of splitting up. However, our law office knows that divorce can result in all sorts of other changes in peoples’ lives, some of which can create a great deal of uncertainty and have a major impact on their future. For example, many people relocate after a divorce and some even move to a new city or part of the country.
