Divorce is a painful process that can be debilitating if you let it. You alone are responsible for the way you live your new life, but you can benefit from help provided by friends and experts alike. If parting from your ex was a crushing experience, taking a clear-eyed approach to the road ahead is the best antidote. Here are three areas you will want to focus on in moving forward.
If you and/or your spouse are in the military, chances are you have moved around quite a bit. Unlike most other occupations, serving in the military often requires people to relocate in different state - and the world - based on where they are needed. And it's not just the military members moving; their families generally pack up and go along as well.
Getting a divorce when one spouse is a member of the armed forces can be a bit different than going through a traditional, civilian divorce proceeding.
As a newly single person, you may be asking yourself "What now?" You have the rest of your life ahead of you and now is the time to start living it. If you always wanted to go back to school, this may be the time. Going back to school as a single parent can be challenging yet rewarding.
Not every divorcing couple wants to-or should-go through a long drawn out process in court, litigating their issues in front of a judge and the public. Some couples simply want to resolve matters on their own in a less hostile-and more affordable-manner.
