Post-Divorce Etiquette - Family Divorce Solutions of San Fernando Valley - divorce, etiquette, divorce process, collaborative divorce - Copyright: <a href="">bialasiewicz / 123RF Stock Photo</a>At every stage along the divorce process, it’s easy not to mind your manners and let your emotions lead the way. When this happens, it can have far-reaching outcomes and cause unimaginable pain to all involved.

But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Utilizing the collaborative divorce process and agreeing to stay out of court can help you and your spouse avoid these hateful and hurtful emotional times.

When you and your spouse agree to a collaborative divorce, you agree to work together to find the best way forward for both of you and spare your children the pain that court divorces can cause.

Here are some post-divorce etiquette measures that we share with our clients as the divorce becomes finalized:

  • Realize that the collaborative divorce process is grounded in being respectful so that the lines of communication stay open
  • Think very hard about what you share with others
  • Do not speak ill of your ex in front of your children
  • Show restraint when posting on social media
  • Consider how your emotions will come across to your children
  • Do not use your children as leverage
  • If you have moved on, don’t discuss your new-found love with your ex

When you eliminate the contentious and aggressive court process, you have an opportunity to resolve your disputes in a fair and cooperative atmosphere, with professionals supporting you in achieving resolution. This can go a long way in laying the groundwork for a new relationship in which co-parenting and healing can occur.
