The above article sets forth six ways to beat the stress of a new, blended family.
The Domestic Law Team here at Cantafio & Song PLLC not only believes in helping you through your divorce in the most compassionate and efficient way possible, but we also strive to work with our clients moving forward past the divorce itself.
As we all know, divorce is far too common in this day and age. As a result, there are a number of "new life" situations that have developed as a result of the same.
The article referenced above sets forth some very clear and basic tips that will help you move forward with your life.
The first suggestion is to set up a co-parenting plan with your new spouse right away. We have found that setting healthy boundaries early on makes all the difference. If the roles are clearly defined, this solves the issues before they even start.
The third suggestion seems to me to be the most critical and this is regardless of the specific post divorce dynamics. Former spouses, despite whatever emotions exist between them (especially when a new partner may be involved), must put aside their differences and work together as a team. This is not about the parents. This is about the best interest of the children. Thus, the parents must work together as a team and not put their own interest before the children's interest (Please read our prior blog regarding "Parental Alienation").
There is life after divorce – in fact, good life. While the divorce process itself can be slow and painful, the Domestic Team at Cantafio and Song, PLLC will provide you representation that is compassionate and efficient and we will help you through the divorce process itself every step of the way. We will also work with you post divorce to make sure your transition into your new life is as smooth as possible.
So please keep the six tips in mind and please contact the Domestic Team at Cantafio & Song PLLC for all of your Family Law needs.
