Although divorce is never really in the plan, it’s something that becomes necessary for about half of all married couples. Whether due to financial issues, growing apart, or a disagreement that simply cannot be reconciled, for many people divorce is the best next step for their situation. If you’re considering the idea of getting a divorce in Maricopa County Arizona or have decided that divorce is the right option for you and have started the process, there are a few things you should know.
Divorce is difficult, even when it’s something that both you and your ex agree needs to happen. The end of a marriage is a significant life change, so it’s important that you give yourself time to absorb what is happening and to grieve the end of this relationship. Don’t force yourself into thinking about “new beginnings” or build what you think your life should be like until you’ve allowed yourself to really grieve what happened. Your Maricopa County divorce attorney may have resources that allow you to get support from individuals who have also been through a divorce and may have insight to share.
If you share children with your ex, it’s important that you put them first when making important decisions. Decisions about where your children will live, what Maricopa County school they will go to if you plan on staying in the county. Even what kind of medical care they will receive are all crucial to their well being and shouldn’t be made lightly. Make sure to discuss these issues with your ex and your Maricopa County divorce attorney about what is in your children’s best interest.
Don’t let anyone pressure you about when the right time to move forward is. If you’re not ready, you’re not ready. And if you are, you are. Some people may be ready to begin dating after a divorce right away, especially if the divorce was something that they wanted. Others may not be ready to date for a long time, and that’s okay too. Shape your own future and don’t let others decide for you what you “should” or “should not” do when it comes to your life and your divorce.
