How Connecticut couples can keep things amicable during a divorce

Couples making the decision to end their relationships often do so with a range of emotions -- from sadness to hurt to anger. Connecticut couples going through a divorce are able to do so (even when emotions are running high) in an amicable way for the emotional welfare of each individual and for any children they share. There are just a few things to remember about keeping things civil.

Coming to the realization that divorce has an impact on everyone involved is essential. When a spouse understands that his or her former partner is also likely experiencing stress -- in other words, putting oneself in their shoes -- it may make for some increased empathy. Understanding, too, that when children see that their parents are making the best of what is likely a sad situation for them, it might help kids to more easily come to terms with a new living situation.

Both individuals should try to have their own support networks in place for when things get rough. Being able to talk to friends and family members may help each person to treat the other with respect as they go through the divorce process. As well, try to sort out contentious issues like those involving finances and get independent legal advice when a solution can't be found. 

When couples going through divorce think of the larger picture and what is at stake -- like the ultimate happiness of their children -- they may be more apt to come to amicable decisions. A Connecticut attorney may be able to help a client who wants to keep things civil with a former spouse. Getting legal advice may only help a client to reach agreements with a soon-to-be former partner.

  • 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.
