Online Divorce Forms


Online divorce service MyDivorcePapers.com (MDP) knows that many clients and prospective clients have trouble thinking about the road ahead when they are going through a divorce. But the company insists that there will come a time in the near future where a divorcee will want to test the dating waters again. When that occurs, it’s important not to let the past have control. To assist these people in getting their post-divorce dating life off on the right foot, the company has put together a new tip sheet. Here’s what they recommend.

Tip One: Don’t let your ex be the measuring stick for new people.

MDP acknowledges that it can be difficult to put the past behind you, but when it comes to dating someone new, it’s essential. “You can’t erase the relationship you had,” said a representative, “but you can keep it from setting a benchmark for future endeavors.”

The “problem” with using the past relationship as a benchmark is that you will either not hold someone to a high enough standard, or you will become trapped in your old models for what a successful relationship looked and felt like, the company says.

Tip Two: Recognize damaging behaviors in both yourself and your partner.

MDP knows that divorce papers tell the story of a complex relationship that had its ups and downs and was ultimately unable to overcome the downs. Despite any good memories, the relationship eventually took a turn for the worst, and it did so because of decisions that one or both parties made along the way. Explains the representative: “Don’t get too carried away with the good times that you enjoyed with your ex. There is a reason you’re no longer together — sometimes there are several — and it’s important to realize those qualities in yourself and a new partner before things move too far along.”

Tip Three: Co-parent effectively.

MDP notes that a significant portion of marriages that end in divorce are cases where children are involved. When one or both parents start dating again, this can present a new set of challenges, both to effective co-parenting and maintaining strong relationships. By co-parenting effectively with your ex and not inserting yourself into the other person’s relationship, a rep states, you’ll be able to keep things stable between yourself and a new partner.
