Welcome back and thanks for joining us for the wrap up of this list of indispensable tips for making your divorce a smoother process. As we mentioned in the previous two articles, there are certain pointers that will make every divorce smoother, regardless of what your situation is, including sticking to a budget, avoiding social media, and keeping your kid’s best interests at heart.

But that’s not all you can do. Divorces are stressful and complicated, and you’ll have to make a lot of choices along the way. Just as in every other area of life, the choices you make can have a profound impact on the outcome of whatever situation you’re in. And divorce is no different. So keep these tips in mind and make good choices!

Our top tips for a better divorce:

Five: Keep your expectations reasonable

Nothing sets you up for disappointment faster than having unreasonable expectations. So it’s important you keep your feet firmly planted on the ground when it comes to planning ahead and knowing what to prepare for. Don’t plan on a giant budget post-divorce. Don’t expect enormous child support payments, or huge alimony checks. Don’t expect your spouse to let you keep everything you want without a fight.

Expecting your kids to accept the divorce without any emotional outbursts would be unreasonable, just like expecting your spouse to be happy about the process wouldn’t be realistic. And the more unrealistic your expectations, the more unhappy you’re going to be when it doesn’t work out that way. So keep your expectations reasonable. You’ll be much happier in the end.

Six: Make sure you get a top of the line divorce attorney

If you’re planning to file for divorce, (or suspect that your spouse is about to!) it would be smart to talk to a reputable and experienced divorce attorney. Ask questions, make sure you know what your rights are, and what you can expect from the process. Being properly informed ahead of time will help you make smart choices moving forward. And that can only happen if you’ve got a great lawyer on board.

Also, spend some time getting to know the attorney you’re considering hiring, and if you need to – shop around a little. You’re going to spend a lot of time working with this attorney, and they’re going to be privy to a lot of your private information. So make sure you work well together, you feel heard and respected, and take the time to read the reviews about them online. Who you hire will have a big impact on how well your divorce is handled.
