How to emotionally prepare for divorce

Going through a divorce is hard, and being unprepared makes things even worse. Men and women in Michigan need to have their finances in order and have a plan for taking care of the children, but it is also helpful to be emotionally prepared as this will assist in making the process a little easier.

As a millennial, how close are you to making an estate plan?

If you are a member of the millennial generation, you probably have a full schedule of work, time with friends, travel and various other interests. If the idea of estate planning ever crosses your mind, you see it as something you do not need to be concerned with for years.

Halloween, custody, and visitation

If you are a co-parent or are worried about your ability to spend time with your child after your divorce has been finalized, you may have all sorts of concerns. For example, you could be worried about how court decisions could affect your child's performance in school or the amount of child support you will be required to pay. However, it is essential to recognize the other ways that you and your child could be affected by the outcome of a custody ruling or your ability to secure visitation rights.

Filing for divorce with seasonal affective disorder

With darker, colder weather, some people experience depression or feel a loss of energy. For those who are splitting up with their spouse, or anticipating a divorce, seasonal affective disorder can make the end of marriage more challenging. If you suffer from this condition, however, you should not give up. It is essential for you to do what you can to work towards an outcome that will protect your interests and account for the best interests of your children, if you have kids. Not only is it possible to successfully work through the divorce process with SAD, but people who understand the challenges associated with SAD and do their best to prevent this disorder from interfering with their divorce may benefit from a more favorable end result.
