View divorce as a fresh start for you and your kids

One thing that you have to remember when you are going through a divorce is that you have to take care of yourself. It is easy to become so consumed with what's going on that you can't focus on making decisions that are in your best interests. If you have children, it is imperative that you take the time to take care of yourself because they need you.

Children and relocation after divorce

When you decide to divorce, you will have to determine where you are going to live if you are the person who is moving out of the marital home or if that home will be sold. It is imperative that you try not to make any big decisions while you are in the midst of the emotional upheaval that comes in this situation.

Don't remain stuck in an emotional rut during divorce

It is easy to fall into a rut with how you interact with certain people. If you are going through a divorce, you might have to adjust how you think about your ex because you aren't married any longer. This split is a fresh start for both parties; however, you might still have to interact with each other if you have children. Determining what aspects of your behavior might contribute to troublesome interactions might benefit you as you work to make the positive changes you need.

Put yourself first when you are going through divorce

The process of divorcing takes a lot of time and energy. This can impact the way that you start your new life, so you must ensure that you are taking steps to improve your situation. One thing that can really hold you back is the inability to let go of the past and move forward as a single person.

Follow these tips during a divorce with a narcissist

Going through a divorce is a troublesome experience, but it is even worse when you are going through it with a narcissist. The manipulative ways of a narcissist make dealing with them very difficult. You have to learn how to disengage with the situation so that you can move forward with the divorce. There are many strategies that can help you, but you have to determine which is the best option for your situation.

Tips to help you find your way during a divorce

High-asset divorces can sometimes get contentious. It is imperative that you take the time to think about what is truly worth fighting for and what you can let go without having to battle for it. Be sure that you base your decisions on what you need and not what someone else wants you to do.

Planning can minimize the stress of divorce with children

When you go through a divorce, there are many things that you need to think about so that you can start moving your life ahead. One of these is that you need to be able to set up a stable home for your children. In order to do this, you have to think about yourself and them all at the same time. Everyone can benefit from you having structure set in the home.

Working through property division takes focus

Asset and debt division matters are often difficult to settle during divorce. The exception to this is when you have a prenuptial agreement in place. In that case, you just follow those provisions and everything is taken care of. We know that not everyone has prenups in place. If you don't, you will have to either work with your ex to get the assets and debts split or you will have to turn to the court to get this done.

High-asset divorce doesn't have to be high conflict

High-asset divorces are often fraught with conflict, but this doesn't mean that you have to deal with a high-stress situation. One reason why it is often difficult for people to reduce the stress they experience during a divorce is because they haven't actually accepted the fact that the marriage is over. It can be especially hard to accept the end when the marriage was lengthy or when there are children involved.

Stress reduction suggestions for single parents

Trying to make a new life for yourself isn't always easy. In fact, it can be downright hard, especially when you have children counting on you to be there for them. When you transition from being a two-parent home to a single parent household, you have to find new ways to make things work. Consider the below suggestions as you try to reduce your stress so you can be the best parent possible for your children.
