It may seem as if the more money you have, the more challenging and stressful your divorce gets. You may think it is normal for you to do and say things that will keep your spouse off-center so you can improve your chances of getting more of what you want out of the divorce. However, it is not necessary for you to go through a dramatic separation.
Your separation is only going to be as hard as you and your spouse make it. Here are some things for you to consider to help make your high-value divorce as uneventful as possible.
You need to wear a cloak of armor to shield yourself from any harmful words and actions you may receive from your spouse during this time in your life. Your relationship may be over, but what he or she says and does still has the power to wound you.
Get a support system
Having a good attorney is essential to minimizing divorce conflict, and so is having a good support system. Surround yourself with family, friends and loved ones who are committed to your well-being. They can help keep you centered, focused and emotionally strong so your divorce does not wear you down or cause you to accept an undesirable settlement.
Keep the big picture in sight
You may periodically lose sight of your goals and the big picture during your divorce. Establish priorities and stick to them. If you have kids, put them first. By looking out for their best interests, you also serve your own.
Do not be greedy. You may think that by asking for more money or assets can help you to get over the situation, but it can create additional challenges for your post-divorce situation. Divorce is already stressful enough. You might want to speak with an attorney for guidance on how to fight for what is rightfully yours without unnecessary drama.
