8 choices that will make divorce more amicable

Deciding to get a divorce is likely difficult to do. Once that decision is made, there are several other areas that both separating spouses need to address. There are eight major areas of contention during and even after the divorce is finalized, which also means that there are eight choices both Colorado spouses can make to improve their chances of having an amicable divorce.

The biggest area of contention in a divorce is children. Both parents will likely have that initial selfish instinct to want as much time with their children as possible; however, when making crucial decisions such as child custody and child support, it is crucial to put the child's needs first. This choice, along with developing an effective parenting plan, will ultimately prove more beneficial to the child's mental and emotional health during and after this difficult time.

Money is the second largest area of contention in a divorce. Even though it may seem difficult, being more flexible with your ability to let material possessions go will ultimately make the divorce more amicable. Getting hung up on every issue will only prolong the divorce process, which could be harder on not only the spouses but also their children.

Ultimately, the biggest and most beneficial choice that both spouses can make during a Colorado divorce is to try to have a positive attitude. Children look to their parents as emotional role models, and by showing them that a difficult situation such as this can be handled amicably, it will affect how they handle difficult situations in the future. If a separating spouse is having trouble with any of the aforementioned choices, help is available in our state for those who seek it.
