Reducing Stress & Anxiety
Divorce is difficult. It’s really hard. If you want to know how to reduce stress and anxiety, our first suggestion is to consider an uncontested divorce. But what’s an uncontested divorce? The two of you agree on the terms of the major issues. You’ll save time, you’ll reduce stress and, most important, you’ll protect your children from the toxic after effects of a divorce that just ends up in ashes.
However, uncontested divorces are not for everybody.
If you’re not aware of the finances and you have a controlling spouse who has knowledge all by him or herself, you’re going to need discovery—lots of documents to make sure what is claimed to be yours is yours. You want to make sure that there are no hidden assets or underreporting of income. It may not work if you need discovery. If either party intimidates the other, that’s not a healthy environment for an uncontested divorce. If spouses are not being reasonable, it’s just not going to work. We are big fans of uncontested divorces, but it doesn’t always work. If you don’t have spouses who are willing to do the right thing for the whole family, it’s not going to work. Still, we encourage you to give it a try if you can.
