For most, if not for both people in a relationship, but certainly one, divorce has been a lingering idea long before anyone mentioned the ‘D’ word. But emotional preparation often gets mistaken for the ‘only preparation’. And we couldn’t agree more. Getting to this stage has taken immense courage, bravery and a willingness to step away from an unhappy situation, towards a healthier, and happier future.
At the Divorce and Separation Hub, we provide practical solutions for divorce preparation. No, we don’t want to pretende the emotions aren’t there because we know that once, you loved this person and saw a future together with each for many years to come. You created a family with this person, built a home, acquired assets, and formed a lifestyle that once worked.
This is a big hill to climb, and why should you go it alone if you don’t need to. Our Divorce Strategy Sessions have been designed to ‘design your divorce’. As coaches and strategists, structure, preparation and understanding the steps, can buffer the days where it can feel all too much. We work with our clients, to tailor a strategy that works for you, and your set of circumstances.
How we like to create a divorce strategy.
There are a number of things to consider when creating a divorce strategy. Each situation is unique, so not everything applies equally to every client we see. Your strategy depends on many factors, such as the length of your marriage, whether or not you have children, financial and employment status, and other varying needs.
Our experience has proved that a strategy outline is key in preparing for that big announcement, and caring for your needs and heart in the process.
1. Prepare ahead of time
2. Get a grasp of the law
3. Get familiar with your finances
4. Prep, prep, and more prep
5. Find everything out about your finances.
6. Creating a strategy for you is also creating a strategy for your children.
Flowing on from point number 3, finding everything out about your finances is one of the most important stages in your divorce strategy. On one hand, if you shared your finances that could be a bonus for an equal split, but this can actually cause massive delays. Conversely, if you have little control of the money, its likely that your entitlements could be greater than you realised. Be savvy, discreet and record what you understand to be your current financial status. Understanding your finances is a significant part of creating a divorce strategy.
7. Creating a support network
8. Finding a family lawyer
9. Start seeing a happier horizon
10. The Divorce and Separation Hub
