Keeping peace during a divorce

When a couple in Ohio is going through the divorce process, they understand that it has the potential to become contentious. Divorcing like an adult means the divorcing couple understands that for their long-term good, they need to change course. A contentious divorce proceeding is only going to lead to problems and frustrations. It can have a negative impact on the finances of the divorcing individuals as well.

To be successful, a divorcing couple needs to get beyond emotions. They need to stop seeing their divorce as a zero-sum game where one side has to lose in order for the other side to win. It's not a matter of victory and loss. Instead, it needs to be a peaceful negotiation focused on ending conflict.

As with all negotiations, success is based on knowledge. This puts a divorcing couple in a great position because they know each other better than anyone else. They know the topics that can set each other off. If they walk into a divorce proceeding or negotiation with the goal of finding a truce, they will be able to navigate around the delicate topics and subjects and come to a resolution.

Something that may help a divorcing couple see the importance of negotiating in a peaceful way is thinking about the collateral damage if they fail to do so. If the couple has children, their children will have to go through the agony of watching their parents tear each other apart, and that can affect the children for years to come. If there are finances involved, failure to come to peaceful solution could mean that each individual walks away with less money than they could have otherwise.

A divorcing individual may want to speak to a family law attorney. The attorney may represent their client in child custody hearings, help them work up visitation schedules and provide advice on things like property division laws, shared accounts and asset valuation.
