How to communicate effectively during your divorce

On Behalf of | Sep 18, 2023 | Divorce

You and your spouse tried everything to save your relationship but it just wasn’t meant to be. Divorce is on the horizon, and while you look forward to a fresh start, you also have questions.

One thing that’s on your mind is how you and your spouse will be able to communicate effectively during divorce proceedings. Outlined below are a few tips that should help.

Find the method that works for you

During the divorce, it’s important to set some boundaries. If you don’t want to receive phone calls from your spouse, then you should make this clear. Many divorcing couples find it beneficial to only communicate via email or messaging apps.

There are no right or wrong answers here, you need to take the approach that’s best for you. What matters is that you both stay on point and take a business-like approach to communications about divorce.

Avoid negative social media use

Social media plays a key role in most people’s lives today. You may use it to vent your frustrations or perhaps just to share photos with friends. Remember, even with high privacy settings, it’s likely that your posts can still be viewed or passed on to your ex. Both spouses should avoid posting anything negative about each other throughout divorce proceedings and afterward.

A collaborative approach can be beneficial

Typically, divorce was seen as an adversarial process but this perspective has gradually started to change. Couples are realizing that communication and compromise are the keys to an efficient separation. Using collaborative law may help you to stay on track.

Whatever divorce method you choose, it’s important to have legal guidance behind you. This will help ensure that your rights are protected at all times.
