For people who have been wanting to get divorced, but were feeling stuck, this is the time to assess how you can best get to where you want to be. Divorce mediation offers couples an alternative to litigation that saves money and time, while minimizing conflict. Through mediation, couples can reach an agreement on parenting and financial issues, and move forward to a better place. Sort of like a spring cleaning of your life.
At Westfield Mediation, LLC, we suggest to our clients that they start making the changes in their life now that will enable them to live more comfortably later. In other words, take the first steps toward getting your financial and emotional houses in order. For example, do a budget assessment now, and determine where your money is going. Figure out what is not essential, and see if you can live happily within your means. Reach out to friends and family to let them know that you are planning to get divorced and ask them for emotional support. Prepare for your new life by looking forward, instead of focusing on any past missteps.
It’s time to celebrate spring -- and let nature’s season of growth and change be yours as well.
