Planning Your Party, Ahem… we Mean Divorce: How to Make Sure it Goes Smoothly (Pt 2)

Party food
Parties are like divorces – they require a lot of planning if you want the end result to be successful!

Hey there, welcome back to this chat about planning for your best… well, not ‘party’ if we’re going to be entirely honest. But party planning and divorce planning have a lot in common. Both can be enormously successful if everything goes well, and absolute disasters if everything goes wrong. So if you want a divorce that goes smoothly and doesn’t dissolve into an epic disaster, follow these simple party planning rules. (And if you missed the first part of the list, take a moment to get caught up here!)

  • Party tip #5: Enlist help from the professionals!

If you’re throwing a party, then it makes sense to hit up Martha Stewart’s website, or even just pinterest for good ideas. Food, decor, themes, there are loads of pros who can inspire you to create a great party, and a divorce is no different. If you’re getting ready to part ways with your spouse, 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.

  • Party tip #6: Keep the menu simple!

In the same way that you’re more likely to avoid mishaps when serving finger food that’s easy to prepare, rather than a complex French dish that takes hours in the kitchen, you can streamline your divorce by avoiding unnecessary expenses and arguments. Don’t start fights with your spouse. Don’t lobby for more than is reasonable and fair, or complicate the process by making false accusations. Keep it as simple as possible by being mature and reasonable. In the end, your kids will benefit from less fighting, and you’ll save money by not engaging your attorney for unnecessary tasks.

  • Party tip #7: Create a playlist!

Music is a party essential, and believe it or not: music (and other forms of fun) can make all the difference when you’re in the middle of a divorce. So keep your mental and emotional health in mind during your divorce. Make sure you get regular exercise (cue that playlist!) and spend time having fun with your kids. You’ll need it for your sanity, and for your health.

  • Party tip #8: Do as much as you can beforehand!

Preparation is everything when you’re throwing a party, and divorce is no different! You wouldn’t want to be slaving away in the kitchen while your guest are having fun, would you? In the same way, you should do as much of the legwork in advance when preparing for a divorce so that during the process (which is already stressful enough as it is) you don’t have to deal with the added burden of paperwork you could have handled months ago, or addressing issues you could have decided on weeks before.
