Happy Marriages thanks to St Valentine Unhappy divorces no thanks

Happy Marriages thanks to St Valentine Unhappy divorces no thanks, might be your hope in February 2017 if separating in Cheshire according to divorce solicitors at Stonehewer Moss in Northwich. Sadly, unhappy marriages are often  beyond a prayer to St Valentine, who the Church designates as the patron saint of the happier state of wedlock. An unhappy marriage can become are bitter divorce if handled badly. If you are sure that your marriage is at an end, Stonehewer Moss recommend that you take a principled approach to the process of separation and possible divorce. Your spouse might want to “fight dirty” but a principled approach, with guidance from an accredited solicitor, gives you the best chance of walking away with your head high and, in most cases, your finances not eaten up by the dispute.

What is a principled approach:-

  1. Know what the law is, do not guess or rely on your friends experiences;
  2. Keep an open mind;
  3. Listen to the people you know are sensible not the drama queens getting their kicks from your dilemma;
  4. Don`t let game playing into the negotiation yourself or by your spouse. Play it straight and  take yourself out of negotiation and to the court if you are being subjected to mind games. Often it is others you trust or advises rather than you that will recognise this.
  5. Do not demonise your ex. Let that in your head and you could live with it for a long time with little in return.
  6. Keep the children out of the dispute as far a their welfare permits.
  7. Simple is often best. Allow a few months to see what your budget is like, taking the opportunity to see what can be afforded and what is needed. Do not try to obfuscate with spreadsheets.
  8. Avoid cost battles. They will cost more in the end.
  9. Reply/ keep communication open but if it is not happening, assume mind games are in play and take it to court.
  10. Budget for legal costs and seek a collaborative approach if you can.
