...it's important to approach things in a team-like manner.
(PRWEB) January 21, 2014
Online divorce site MyDivorcePapers.com (MDP) works with a number of clients hoping for an amicable solution to their divorce case. Couples who choose to file divorce forms in this manner typically have reached common ground and plan to maintain as much control as possible over the situation without getting attorneys involved.
To help conquer divorce in this manner, MDP has put together a new tip sheet that calls for the following actions:
Be Open With Goals
MDP admits that amicable divorce is not always possible and whenever it isn't, spouses should hire an attorney. However, when both parties have even temperament and are in agreement that the marriage isn't working, the time is right to discuss those goals with one another.
"It may not be an easy subject to broach, but if you and your spouse are on the same page -- that the marriage isn't working -- then you need to have the conversation and be open and honest about your goals," said a company representative. "Approach the situation by explaining that you want a fair and equitable outcome for what you've both put in to the marriage. Starting from that perspective will keep conflict from escalating."
Plan Around Issues Of Conflict
Even when spouses act as partners in the divorce proceeding, it isn't always possible to eliminate conflict altogether, MDP acknowledges. "One of the most common sticking points for couples is, who gets primary custody of the children?" the rep stated. "But even this can be worked out with a little conversation, and perhaps the assistance of a licensed mediator. Don't just automatically assume you need a lawyer because there are one or two issues that require further discussion."
When Possible, Walk Through The Procedure Together
If a divorce is to be truly collaborative, MDP notes, it's important to approach things in a team-like manner. "Think of this as a business transaction more than the end of a marriage," the rep said. "That's not to say you can't grieve for the marriage, but realize this is something you have to get through before you move on to the healing process. You can't heal before it's happened, so put away the emotional aspects, sit down together, and walk through the process," adding that MDP utilizes "a guided, step-based approach to answering questions and compiling paperwork, which some couples might find easier and less frustrating than going it alone."
