Is it possible to “succeed” at divorce? It is if you have the right people behind you, supporting you in three critical areas: legal, financial and emotional. Assembling your divorce “dream team” is something you should focus on as soon as possible, as these will be the most important people in your life during this challenging process.
Divorce is a legal process, and your lawyer knows exactly what type of information you need to proceed with your divorce and how to handle the necessary paperwork properly to ensure your side has a fair hearing. Your attorney will also help you focus on the big picture because he or she wants to obtain the best outcome possible for you. You will find that having an attorney on your side to provide you with sound, strategic advice for moving forward is invaluable.
Having a financial adviser who specializes in divorce is a great asset to anyone going through a divorce. Their expertise can be priceless when it comes to making a financial plan for your new life going forward so you know what to negotiate for when it comes to alimony, child support, and the division of marital assets.
Divorce is an emotional minefield and you will need a sympathetic ear and perhaps professional guidance to help you navigate it successfully. If there are emotional issues from your past you still need to deal with that contributed to your split, you may want to seek help from a therapist who can help you understand these underlying issues and move past them. If you just need some extra support and guidance with a focus on preparing you for the future, you may want to work with a divorce coach to help you achieve your goals for the divorce. You also have the option of joining a divorce support group, which offers you a safe place to talk with others going through the same things you are.
Be careful not to lean too much on friends and family for all your emotional support. While they probably mean well, their bias can lead you to make some bad decisions and actually increase your stress level.
