4 ways to make divorce less painful

It's more than a little ironic that the thing that's made several states overturn bans on gay marriage is the fact that it's unconstitutional to deny a couple a divorce. So divorce, rather than marriage, became the lynchpin for turning states around that otherwise would have tried to keep same sex couples from marrying. Regardless of how it happened, more and more states are joining the right side of history and legalizing same-sex marriage, including California.

While some aspects of same-sex divorce differ from a traditional divorce, there are some things that are universal. Divorce is one of the emotionally draining ordeals you can go through, no matter who you are. With that in mind, here are a few tips to making the process less taxing:

  1. Keep open lines of communication with your ex. This can mean giving him or her a call or just sending an email. This is especially important if you have children together.
  2. Never throw anything away. Keep a paper record of everything and anything to do with the divorce. You never know when it'll come in handy.
  3. Try mediation. Working your issues out before you go to court can save you a lot of anguish and can even save you some money.
  4. If you have children together, switch your ex's contact info to say "co-parent." Every time you communicate, you'll be reminded of your shared responsibility to the child.

Of course, having a family law attorney can be an incredible asset. He or she can walk you through the process, make sure your needs are met and, with a little luck, keep you sane.
