At Sekella Law, PLLC, we understand more than most the stress you are likely going through during your divorce. This is one of the most challenging times of your life, which is why the legal team at Sekella Law strives to provide you with the guidance you need to get back on track. Your future is our focus, and in this blog, our Manchester divorce lawyers will be focusing on a few ways we can help you manage the stress of your divorce
1. Establish Open Communication
As divorce attorneys, we’ve seen the whole gamut of emotions—rage, fear, sadness, and depression. When you work with our team of compassionate Manchester divorce attorneys, you can feel confident we will listen to your situation and provide you with the legal options you need to move forward with the divorce process. The important aspect to remember when working with your attorney is to establish open and honest communication. If there is a property or asset you would like to keep, be up front about your desires and we can do our best to ensure that our plan includes your needs for this asset. In the past, clients have tried to hide assets only for them to be discovered by their ex’s attorney and used as negative character evidence.
2. Set Realistic Expectations
Unlike some attorneys who will promise, you’ll get everything you want in the divorce, our Manchester divorce attorney set realistic expectations. We may not always tell you what you want to hear, but we will provide you with the facts and realities of your case. By facing the realities of how your child custody might be split, how assets will be divvied up and how much alimony you might be expected to pay, it can lessen the stress of facing the unknown.
3. Prepare For Compromise
We like to tell our clients that in the divorce process, there are no winners. Clients must be prepared to compromise if they want to have a manageable divorce. Our Manchester divorce attorney recommends writing down things you are not willing to compromise on and things you are. If at the end of this exercise you find that you have very few items on your “will compromise” list, consider reviewing the “will not compromise” section and number them by priority. This can act as a guide for us to work from when developing our strategy for your divorce case.
