DIVORCE / SEPARATION:
Are You Considering a Separation or Divorce?
Every year, a certain number of families will deal with a separation or a divorce. They’re some of life’s most stressful events, along with deaths, serious illness or accidents, and losing your job.
Envisage the Consequences
You’ll have to take counsel from professionals (lawyers, mediators) and make various decisions: set up two different homes, sort out financial and property issues, and agree on child custody and care. Depending on the outcome of the process, you may need to look for a new apartment or house. You may also need space to temporarily store your belongings while you find a new dwelling.
Help Your Children
Going through a divorce or a separation can be hard for the whole family, including your children. Each child will naturally react very differently to a new situation. It’ll depend on the way you and your partner act around them during and after the proceedings. There are several things you can do to help your children in this complex—and far from straightforward—situation:
- Encourage your kids to maintain their day-to-day routine.
- Make sure you and your partner are both present and available for your kids. Listen to them and answer their questions.
- Avoid discussing legal proceedings in front of them.
