In this new year, unfortunately I find that some, who believe their divorce is inevitable, are having difficulty starting the process.

When to start is certainly a personal decision.

I believe every chance for reconciliation should be pursued, until and if divorce becomes inevitable. Then the time to start, is immediately, without delay. Here is why:

  1. Emotional well-being: The longer the divorce process, the more stress and emotional pain for both parties. It is generally better for both parties to resolve the divorce as quickly and harmoniously as possible so that they can move on with their lives.
  2. Financial stability: Divorce can have significant financial consequences, and the longer the process takes, the longer it will take for each party to achieve financial stability.
  3. Closure: The divorce process can provide a sense of closure and allow both parties to move on with their lives.
  4. Children: If there are children involved, it is generally better to resolve the divorce as quickly as possible in order to minimize the impact on them.
  5. Non-litigation processes: Mediation or Collaborative Divorce (alternatives to the long in-court process) can speed up the divorce, make it less adversarial and less costly.
  6. New beginnings: Divorce, even if it is inevitable, can lead to new positive beginnings for each party. Continuing to be connected through existing relationships such as parenting or business can be an important factor in this process. By resolving the divorce as quickly and harmoniously as possible, both parties can begin to adapt to their new roles and move forward with their lives. This can be especially important if there are children involved, as it allows both parties to focus on co-parenting and maintaining a positive relationship for the benefit of their children.

Please, if it is going to happen, pick a process, select a lawyer who specializes in your chosen process, select a mediator, if you chose Mediation and begin, Now.
