Couples contemplating a divorce often decide to wait until after the holidays to get started believing that dealing with their divorce during the holidays will be too stressful.  Unfortunately, what they don’t count on is the impact that waiting will have on their ability to enjoy the holiday season. So before you decide to wait for the ball to drop before starting your divorce, consider this article.

Uncertainty kills.

Perhaps not literally, but never underestimate the impact to your well being of living in a state of uncertainty. Divorce is like a mountain of uncertainty. Where will we each reside, who will have the kids, how will we pay for everything when we stop sharing expenses, and how long will it take for us to return to being single? These are just a few of the questions that are surely racing through your mind as you contemplate ending your marriage. The unknown often leads are minds to the worst case scenario, which in divorce is typically a fear of scarcity. Your fears are likely around not having enough–money, time with the kids, property to retire on and so on. Faced with scarcity, we often react in self-protecting ways that may protect us in the short term, but that have long term costs that we are not able to appreciate in our fearful state.

 Mediation quashes uncertainty.

Because when you agree to attend mediation, you are agreeing to focus on finding solutions that work for everyone involved. We work to avoid scarcity of resources, which is comforting.  As you work through your sessions, you will be putting together a plan so that you will know exactly how much money you will have, when you will have the children, and where you will live. You will walk into the new year with a sense of hope.

You deserve to spend this holiday season in Peace.
