Divorce is often an overwhelming process to have to go through. Having a good lawyer on your side is paramount. Questions about the kids and finances top the charts when it comes to concerns that you might have when contemplating divorce. Because these issues are so important and long lasting—it is important that you consult with a good lawyer as soon as possible. Decisions about the kids, custody, and finances can impact you and your children for a lifetime, so it is important that you address these issues head on.
Thinking about “the kids” is where your head should be. However, if you’ve ever flown on an airline—in the event of an emergency, the stewardess will instruct you to put the oxygen on “you” first and assist your child second. With a divorce, you will need to practice that same principle and make sure you get “the oxygen” first…and then you have the ability to help your child. Without oxygen, you really can’t do much to help yourself or your children, so be sure to put first things first.
A huge part of taking care of yourself is understanding what will be needed to handle the needs of your children and how you can equip yourself to meet these needs. Beyond the love and the social emotional items you will deal with, you will have custody and financial matters as well. Divorce is not a good time to be fickle or impatient.
