For many, divorce is the beginning of a grieving process

The time that passes between accepting that one's marriage is headed for divorce and the actual conclusion of the legal process can be hectic. There are so many things to handle within that short span of time that many Colorado spouses feel overwhelmed. When it comes to managing one's emotional reaction to divorce, the "grieving" process is often pushed aside for more immediate concerns. This can leave a spouse ill-prepared for the emotions that often follow the end of a marriage.

The emotional effects of divorce will differ from one person to the next, but virtually everyone will have some emotional reaction to this fundamental change in the course of one's life. Often, divorced spouses will go through a grieving process, which is akin to the steps that follow the death of a loved one. Divorce marks the end of an important period in a person's life, and there is no way to know how long it will take one to overcome the grief that can accompany the change.

One thing that can make things easier is having a favorable divorce settlement in place. Spouses who negotiate a fair division of assets and draft a well-constructed child custody arrangement are in far better positions to address their emotional needs than those who sign away more wealth than they should or hand over more parenting time than they intended. This is why it is so important to give the negotiation process one's full attention during a Colorado divorce.

Spouses who are preparing to end their marriage should go into the process with an understanding that there may be a period of grieving that follows. By making the best possible choices during divorce negotiations, each party can walk away with a strong financial foundation and a continuing bond with their children. Having these things in place can allow the freedom to address any emotional needs that might arise in the months to follow.
