Cupid’s Advice:

When you decide to get a divorce, it can often lead to a bitter parting of ways.  Cupid has some ways to keep it peaceful:

1. Understand that it will be hard: Although it’s never easy, the end result is best for you and your former spouse.  Try to be friendly with each other, but understand that there will be some hurt feelings on both ends.

2. Cooperate: Don’t butt heads with lawyers during the divorce process.  If your lawyer or your spouse’s lawyer requests information, don’t dawdle.  It’s best to get things out in the open early on.

3. Keep stability: Find a new residence and surround yourself with a close group of friends.  Try to go about your normal routine as much as possible in order to maintain stability.  This will prevent you from lashing out.
