Three things to make your divorce go smoothly during the holidays

During the holiday season, it is not common for married couples to initiate divorces. Some use the season as a last ditch effort to rekindle their relationship or to make things bright for the kids. Nevertheless, there are some people who have had enough, and decide to dissolve their marriages despite what the holiday season stands for. There is no right or wrong answer about when you should decide to call it quits, but when you do, there are several things to be wary of so that you don’t waste time and/or money.

This post will identify them.

Leave your emotions out of it – From a legal standpoint, a divorce is an orderly process of dividing the marital estate so that each party can move on with solid expectations about their financial responsibilities. From an emotional standpoint, it could be a rollercoaster where you feel a range of emotions. If you leave the emotions out of it, chances are that you will realize your goals quicker.

Have up to date financials – The process will be smoother if you have accurate information regarding your finances, including current bank and investment statements, information on retirement accounts and a budget that reflects your future expenses.

Think about the best for the kids – This may sound cliché, but it is surprising how many parents make decisions that are in their best interests, and not in the children’s best interests. When you fail to consider your kids, another layer of complications could arise.

If you have questions about what can be done so that these issues do not complicate your divorce, an experienced family law attorney can help.
