New Year’s resolutions during divorce

The new year is the perfect time to make a new start in life and some new resolutions. Those in Connecticut who are preparing for divorce may find that there are some goals that may be more beneficial than the typical ideas of losing weight and eating healthy.


First, recommends that ex-spouses focus on self-healing. This could be achieved through physical exertion or meditation, such as running or a yoga class. Counseling sessions and therapy may also be in order. Making time for loved ones who want to help can also give sufferers support and company when things get lonely. Embracing new hobbies or favorite interests is another great way to handle the grief that can accompany separation.


Another recommendation is to decide to move on and focus on the present. There are likely feelings of anger and sadness stemming from what has happened in the past as well as anxiety and fear about the future. People should leave the past behind and take care of the future by focusing on the present.


Patience and respect are also great attributes to work toward when setting resolutions for the new year. Anger, jealousy, hatred and revenge will do no good for current relationships with an ex-spouse and the shared children. Setting a good example of taking the high road will make a difference in how the kids feel about the divorce.


Forbes suggest that women preparing for divorce should resolve to become more involved in financial matters. This is especially important to case hearings since all accounts will need to be verified in order to determine sufficient child support.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
