Splitting the Goods: Keeping the Divorce Process in Order Even if it’s a decision that considers the interests of both parties, divorce is still considered by a lot of people to be a really emotionally draining experience. In a way, they are right. Through a divorce, you are basically severing ties with someone you once loved, or perhaps still love but just not in the same light anymore. While emotions will surely be shaken up during the divorce process, the material aspect of it doesn’t need to be as chaotic. There are things that you can do to make sure that the division of your responsibilities and assets as a couple is clear-cut, fair, and practically amicable. We present some of them here. If you have kids, make clear arrangements about them Many couples stay together even if their relationship has become toxic because they don’t want their kids to have a broken home. While the intent is noble, faking things is just not the right way to go in any situation. Now, just because divorce is the best course of action doesn’t mean that the separation won’t be difficult for the kids. To minimize the impact on them, act as mature adults and set how the two of you are going to be involved in the lives of your children. Who are they going to live with? Who’s paying for their schooling? How are they going to spend vacations and holidays? These are very basic questions, but they surely have spurred serious conflicts among ex-couples. And they surely can do the same to you if you don’t tackle them early on. Make clear child care agreements, and avoid using the kids as a means to get even with your soon-to-be ex-partner. Monetize your properties whenever possible The division of houses and property attorneys who you’re going to consult with will most likely advice you to monetize your properties as much as possible. Monetization will make the split a lot easier and much more precise. Because of this, it will be easier for both parties to judge the split as fair and easily enforceable. Of course, there are properties that are difficult to convert to money immediately, especially if they hold sentimental value, or when it’s practical and strategic to hold on to them, at least as far as raising the kids is concerned. For such properties, it is important that you negotiate and come up with an agreement that is not necessarily equal, but at least acceptable to both parties. Keep out of each other’s way When couples marry, one partner’s affairs also become the affairs of the other, not necessarily because they are involved in it but because they will be affected by those affairs’ outcomes. When they split, the involvement of the ex-partners with each other obviously becomes not as deep, and they should keep it that way. They can, of course, still be friends but not to the point that one meddles or always gives unsolicited comments about the affairs of the other. Just as long as the terms stipulated in their divorce agreement are still being followed, then a safe distance from each other should be maintained. Divorces put would-be ex-partners on a rollercoaster of emotions. This is a given. But they just have to be reasonable in their decision-making so they won’t make the circumstance that they are in even more difficult.
