Preserving Relationships After Divorces In Everett And Snohomish County
As much as you want to put your divorce behind you, you will still likely have to work with your spouse for many years to come, and not every argument you have can or should be taken to court for resolution.
You can start your post-divorce life off on the right foot by taking opportunities for cooperation during your initial divorce proceedings. By employing less contentious divorce solutions when your relationship allows, you can save yourself the time, money and stress of a courtroom battle, and arrive at agreements that meet your individual family’s needs.
Helping You Find A Less Stressful Way Forward
At Akiona Law, PLLC, we guide our clients through the divorce process and represent their best interests under the law. As their team, we also provide ways to preserve relationships in the process. As you deal with disagreements, remember:
- Don’t let the emotional trauma of today overshadow what is fair. The severity of disagreements feels magnified during initial divorce proceedings. Do not let this cloud your mind when dealing with the nuts and bolts of child support, child custody and other divorce issues.
- It is in your best interest to protect the financial stability of everyone involved. You can easily end up feeling the burden of your spouse’s financial challenges after the divorce is final. Do your best to give everyone in your family, including your spouse, the best opportunities for financial stability so everyone walks away in a favorable position.
- Parent-child relationships are worth protecting. As long as your child is not in danger because of parental fitness issues, he or she deserves the opportunity to develop a relationship with both of his or her parents. When dealing with child custody and parenting schedules, make sure everyone is given the chance to be a family.
Every family will have different issues to consider when going through a divorce. It is our goal to make sure those specific needs are met and that positive interactions are fostered through the divorce process. Even if things are emotionally taxing today, there are ways to get through this while protecting your rights and everyone involved.
