Social media is an integral part of everyday life for most people. It is a fantastic way to keep in touch with both relatives and friends from whom distance separates you. However, could social media be damaging your relationship?
Living with a narcissist is difficult and it will come as no surprise to anyone in that position, that it is going to take courage and determination to divorce one.
When parents separate there can be issues over the arrangements for children and, in particular, how your children’s time will be divided on special occasions such as Christmas.
The cost of seeking expert legal advice can be such a concern for some people that they delay going to a solicitor until they absolutely have to. This is completely understandable, particularly at a time when your future financial security is so uncertain. But the issue of how you pay your divorce costs is something we can help you with and it shouldn’t stop you getting the support you need. The sooner you get expert legal advice, the better.
When you think about possible reasons why people get divorced, the more obvious ones tend to spring to mind: One person having an affair? Financial difficulties? A lack of love and affection? However, there are other, not as obvious reasons that over time can be detrimental to a relationship. Do you treat your house like a hotel? Are you addicted to social media? Read on to see if any of these feel familiar:
What is a good enough reason for getting divorced
For a divorce to be granted by the courts there needs to be evidence that the marriage has irretrievably broken down – but what’s a good reason for getting divorced and just how far do you have to go in order to prove your marriage is over?
Before starting the divorce process, it is important to seek specialist family law advice to discuss your situation in depth. This is an important first step because it allows you to think about the outcome you would like to achieve and make sure that you are prepared for the road ahead. Your solicitor’s support will be invaluable as you draw up your divorce petition. It’s likely that you are doing this for the very first time, but your solicitor is not, and the experience they can share with you will help you feel reassured that you are making the right decisions.
Research has shown that the memory of how a child first learns about their parents’ divorce tends to stick with them. This is why it’s worth spending a bit of time discussing how you’ll break the news. It will undoubtedly be one of the most difficult conversations you have as a family but, if dealt with carefully, it can smooth the way for greater understanding and easier co-parenting in the months and years that follow.
It is always preferable to resolve the child arrangements and the division of assets amicably.
