Preparing for the emotional and financial aspects of divorce

There are likely many people in Massachusetts who are stuck in an unhappy marriage. Because they are worried about the potential consequences of a divorce, especially when there are children involved, they may continue to live unhappily. However, many families have found that the decision to end a marriage is the best for both spouses as well as the children.

When there are children involved, a person may be more reluctant to seek a divorce because of concerns that such a decision might have on children. However, children may actually be happier with divorced parents who are happy and living without the anxiety or anger associated with a failing relationship. While there is typically a period of transition, parents who are committed to making it smooth can ensure that children are relatively unscathed throughout the process.

A person considering divorce will also have to make financial preparations. It is likely that his or her financial situation will change following a split. However, with planning, adjustments can be made, and each person can begin building their own future.

A divorce also has emotional ramifications. In the long run, seeking to end an unhappy marriage often leaves a person happier. However, using social support systems can help a person cope with initial feelings. Discussing feelings with someone who is trusted can help a person process his or her emotions following such a major life decision and feel less alone. While the time surrounding the end of a marriage can be difficult, planning and using available resources -- including speaking with an experienced family law attorney -- can help people in Massachusetts better understand their options and seek a happier future.
