Can you combat stress during divorce with positive habits?

You knew that making the decision to divorce your spouse in California would take its toll from an emotional perspective. You were fully prepared to begin making important decisions about your future relating to your financial situation, living situation and child care situation. However, you never considered how significant amounts of stress could begin to alter your ability to stay focused, be effective in your job and continue to build and maintain solid relationships. Fortunately, there are healthy ways of combating the stress related to your divorce.

3 options for avoiding contention during a divorce

Ending a marriage is not easy, whether a divorce stems from the marriage running its course or more specific issues like infidelity. No matter what the circumstances leading up to the divorce are, however, many people prefer an amicable divorce to a contentious one. This is especially true when there are children involved.

How does low income factor into child support?

Both parents of a child have a responsibility to care for and support the child, including financially. That is why California has a child support system to enable non-custodial parents to provide financial support to their children. However, support arrangements can put financial strain on some parents, especially those with lower incomes.

What you can't do during a divorce

The decision to get a divorce can often feel like a single, charged moment. It's likely been building for a while, but once you've finally made the decision, an entirely new chapter of your life begins. Even before proceedings have gotten underway, the divorce is real in your mind. It's tempting to embrace this feeling and change everything all at once, but the reality is that finalizing a divorce takes a while, typically six months in California. During that time, there are certain things you can't do, even though it may feel right to do them. You may be frustrated by these restrictions, but they're intended to protect all parties while negotiating the terms of the divorce.
