Thoughts to take away after Mother’s Day

| May 17, 2017 | Family Law

We hope all of our readers had a wonderful Mother’s Day. This includes moms who literally (and figuratively) do everything around the home, those who are struggling to make ends meet, as well as those moms who are working hard to restore trust in their relationships with their children.

While all moms are important, we shouldn’t forget about mothers going through divorces, and child custody issues. After all, they should receive the support and appreciation they deserve.

With that, we offer the following tips for moms going through contentious family law issues.

Let it go – More than just a catchy Disney tune, it exemplifies the importance of putting things in perspective in order to move on with life. Indeed, it’s not easy to set aside your paid, but imagine the happiness you earn when you do.

Revel in adjustments – Life is all about being okay with making adjustments. After all, everyone has to improvise to some extent. Your divorce or child custody dispute is nothing different.

Be an adult –You may have heard this before, but being “grown up” about your situation can help you avoid unnecessary costs during the proceedings.  Also, you want to set a good example for your kids to follow.

Your ex’s next should not be an enemy– You will continue to have a relationship with your ex if you have children together, and chances are that both of you will move on to see other people. As such being cordial to your ex’s next love interest is good for the children to see.
