It is very tempting to cut off all contact and become withdrawn from the situation, however, communication is crucial to any divorce proceedings. It’s important to communicate with your spouse, your lawyers, your family and if necessary, divorce support experts.

By being open to communication, the proceedings will be much easier on you mentally, in comparison to if you avoided the situation.

The Children

Often when a marriage ends, children are involved and in bitter disputes can be used as ammunition. Avoid this, communicate with your children if they’re of an age to be able to understand, and try and keep their routine the same. Keep any disagreements and arguments away from the children, and always reassure them that no matter what happens between the two of you, you will always love them.
