Ending your marriage is already a painful decision to make. Instead of adding a contentious and drawn-out divorce battle to the equation, why not choose a peaceful process instead?
An amicable divorce is possible. You and your spouse can efficiently and successfully divide your assets and debts, figure out custody arrangements if you have kids, and sort through your situation with mindfulness and collaboration. All you need to be able to do is the following four tasks:
- Put aside blame and be willing to see your spouse’s point of view.
- Be open to an environment that involves mutual respect and decisions made in good faith.
- Focus on the big picture and reaching your goals.
- If you have children, put their needs first and practice good co-parenting habits.
If you and your spouse can undertake these tasks while working through the terms of your divorce, you will be able to dissolve your marriage amicably and mindfully.
What is Mindful Divorce?
Simply put, mindfulness is being in the “here and now.” Choosing a mindful divorce approach means you and your spouse work through issues as they arise and discuss your needs, concerns, and expectations openly and fairly.
We are inundated with pressure every day; Add to that burden the stress of divorce, and the situation can quickly become overwhelming. The team at Bort Law helps divorcing couples practice mindfulness to escape the persistent and anxious need to tackle everything at once. In a safe and comfortable environment, spouses deal with each step as it comes and stay aware of the progress they are making. A mindful divorce approach will allow you to rebuild a new kind of relationship for the future while working toward a durable and fair divorce agreement. Instead of focusing on the future with anxiety or looking at your past with despondency, you keep your awareness in the present moment.
