Unchecked Emotions Add Time and Cost to a Divorce

On Behalf of | Nov 10, 2019 | Divorce

Unchecked emotions add time and cost to a divorce in North County or Carlsbad.  The primary source of cost in a divorce is the amount of discord and disagreement between the parties.  How do you handle conflict?  Are you aware when your former spouse is pushing your emotional buttons?  One of the most profitable skills to work on during your Carlsbad divorce is the ability to manage powerful emotion and recognize emotional hot buttons within yourself.

As Certified Family Law Specialists who have represented Carlsbad residents in Encinitas, Oceanside, Vista and Carlsbad divorce cases for multiple decades we can tell you thing for certain: Ultimately every issue in your divorce case will be resolved in one way or another.

The central question of your divorce should be “How will areas of disagreement be resolved?”

Now that you know that unchecked emotions add time and cost to a divorce another important question to ask yourself is “How am I going to manage my emotions and self-care during the process?”

You have the most control and influence over these answers when you are negotiating with the other party.  The Carlsbad divorce attorneys at Burke & Domercq are skilled negotiators.  Our decades of service in Carlsbad family law courts inform these negotiations.  We can recommend several options which might work and shield you from emotional hot buttons while helping you to set aside strong emotions to make decisions from a position of strength.

Mediation is another alternative to taking your case before a judge.  Mediation is a confidential and non-binding option which creates a productive non-confrontational environment where the parties can identify their core issues.  The mediator helps to guide the conversation and works with the parties and their representatives to identify potential solutions and negotiate resolution to these challenges.  You maintain a fairly high degree of control and influence in mediation.

You will ultimately get through your divorce, and the emotions will pass.  It is important to really understand this.  You will have to live with outcome or spend years in expensive and post-decree litigation.
