Uncertainty during divorce is difficult for children. Fortunately, parents can employ strategies to reduce their children's uncertainty-related stress.
For people who want to resolve their divorce as painlessly as possible, an uncontested divorce is possible with the help of a family law attorney.
Collaborative divorce seeks to encourage the divorcing couple to work together toward an agreement without going to court. This alternative dispute resolution (ADR) approach requires both parties to hire separate collaborative attorneys who agree to work together toward a settlement. The attorneys are specifically trained in collaborative law so the focus is to solve problems to reach a win-win solution for both parties. It also requires both parties to be actively involved in negotiations and problem-solving.
The secret to having a happy thanksgiving after divorce is simply planning for it. Planning ahead reduces the stress and sadness that often accompany this holiday after divorce. It also provides an opportunity for the divorced party to stay connected with children during such an intense time of the year when he or she might otherwise feel left out or forgotten about by those around him or her. Planning could involve creating a to-do list for Thanksgiving, having a good parenting and financial plan, and thinking about the right people to spend time with during the holidays.
