Though you are still divorced, you are still a family

Family sitting in garden of flowers.When you and your spouse agree that it is time to start your marital separation, emotions can run high.

And with these feelings, it is tough to see the future with your ex moving forward, which has to have room for co-parenting and reshaping your family unit.

But, it is possible, especially when you utilize the collaborative divorce process.

The Collaborative Divorce Process looks at the whole picture of the impact a divorce will have for all involved, including the children, at each step – beginning, middle, end and future.

This method of divorce brings together a well-rounded group of professionals who work together as a team to find a respectful and peaceful divorce agreement that helps your family move forward after your divorce has been finalized.

In our newest video series, 14 Rules for Fair Fighting, we discuss many different communication skills that you and your family can work thru during and after your divorce, here are some of them:

  • To have a productive argument, you can’t jump to conclusions
  • Don’t interrupt; listen actively
  • Leave judgment at the door
  • Don’t exaggerate, share honest facts and feelings
  • Quiet your insecurities, and listen
  • Deal with concerns as they arise
  • Stay open to the conversation

Never forget that you and your co-parent are ultimately a team. If you’re going through a divorce and have children, you’re still going to be a family.

Divorce is not the end of the family. It’s simply a restructuring of your family.
