Coming to the decision that you and your spouse should get a divorce is often a relief, as perhaps you will finally be able to live the life you want. While it may feel like a weight has been lifted, there is much work to do before your divorce agreement is completed. The next step in the divorce process can be a daunting one -- letting everyone know you are getting divorced. 

For most people, telling children about divorce is difficult. Here are a few tips to help you make the conversation easier:

Waukesha, WI divorce attorneyYou cannot predict the future and determine whether your marriage will last. However, you can take certain steps to improve your marriage and reduce your risk of getting divorced. Whether you are a newlywed or have been married for decades, these seven tips can help you prevent divorce:

1. Take Care of Yourself

Meeting your own personal needs will help you be the best person you can for your partner. In order to do so, eat healthy foods and exercise regularly. You should also shower and groom yourself on a daily basis. Taking care of yourself is an easy way for you to keep the attraction alive.

Delafield real estate during divorce attorneyIt is often a good idea to refinance your home before rather than after divorce proceedings. This is particularly true if you own a home that is jointly held by you and your soon-to-be-ex-spouse. In the event your home is jointly held, you will be able to sell the property or have one person’s name removed from the deed. If you choose to remove a name from the deed, you should consider refinancing before divorce proceedings for the following reasons:

  1. Your Credit Score May Drop. During a divorce, spouses will typically undergo many financial changes. If you share accounts with your spouse, your credit rating may go down when these accounts are closed. In addition, legal fees during your divorce proceedings can hurt your finances and credit as well. Therefore, it is a smart move to refinance your mortgage before your credit score takes a hit, so that you will not be left with a higher interest rate and higher monthly payments. 
  1. It Can Be Difficult to Refinance After a Divorce. All too often, couples do not remove one spouse’s name from their mortgage until their divorce has been finalized. The spouse keeping the home will be seeking a new loan, but they may not be able to land one that is suitable for their needs. If this occurs, a spouse may be unable to take over the mortgage, because a lender may refrain from approving a single borrower with a credit score and income that is lower than what was displayed on the combined application. Refinancing complications will then arise, and the spouse who will no longer be living in the house may still be required to contribute to mortgage payments.
  1. Plans Can Change During Divorce. While you may have originally hoped to divide your assets in a civil manner, the strong emotions that can arise during divorce proceedings can cause opinions to change. For this reason, it is better to make financial decisions, especially large ones that are related to your home, before matters between you and your spouse get emotional.
  1. Asset Protection. Asset protection should always be on your mind when you are going through a divorce. You should be thinking about your current life as well as the future to avoid bad scenarios. For example, if the name of your ex-spouse is listed on your mortgage and title, and they get in trouble with the IRS down the road, your home could be at risk. By refinancing right away to secure sole ownership, you can avoid these types of issues and protect your assets.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-19.jpgWhile divorce is difficult for the couple involved, it can also take a serious toll on the lives of their children. If you are going through a divorce, you should make it a priority to help your children cope with it.

Regardless of the age of your children, these tips are sure to help them get through this rough patch so that they can focus on school, extracurricular activities, hobbies, friends, and anything else that brings them the health and happiness they deserve. 

  • Avoid Being Critical of Your Spouse. You should be truthful when explaining the reasons for the divorce to your children. However, while you are being truthful, you should avoid blaming their mother or father and keep your negative feelings to yourself. You can hurt your children by speaking ill about their other parent.
  • Emphasize That They Did Not Cause the Divorce. Sometimes, children may believe that their parents are getting divorced because they were constantly arguing about them. If this is the case with your children, you should reassure them that they have nothing to do with the divorce. 
  • Always Tell Them You Love Them. During a divorce, life can get hectic and stressful, making it easy for you to forget to tell your children that you love them. A simple “I love you” every day is a powerful way to show your children that the divorce will not change how you care for and love them. 
  • Work Together with Your Ex-Spouse. Even though your marriage did not work out, your children should still be considered the most important people in your life as well as the life of your ex-spouse. Therefore, if possible, you should work together with your ex-spouse to raise your children well. It’s important for you and your ex-spouse to divide up parental duties and come to a custody and visitation agreement that has their best interests in mind.
  • Minimize Major Lifestyle Changes. You should make an effort to minimize major lifestyle changes that your divorce may bring to your children. For example, your children should continue living in the same home, attending the same school, and participating in the same routine and activities that they were prior to your divorce. Keeping life stable can reduce hardship on your child and help get their mind off of the divorce.
