Divorce in itself could be emotionally draining. Although no-fault divorce is a thing these days however there are still plenty of opportunities for emotions to erupt especially when it comes to negotiating child custody arrangements or property division.
However, even if you are dealing with an extraordinarily difficult ex, it is smart to maintain your cool no matter how the divorce proceedings progress. Here are three reasons divorced dads should always take the high road.
It's Good for your Kids
First and foremost, your first priority should be your child. He might already be struggling, witnessing the spilt, and you don't want to add to his emotional woes. Thus it is advised to come up with an effective co-parenting arrangement that keeps both of you involved and engaged in your children’s lives is one of the best things you can do for them. Off course, things didn't go the way you had planned but you should not let those hard feelings affect your children.
It's Good for your Mental Health
The problem with lashing out at your ex, even if she has seriously wronged you, is that it is not going to make you feel any better. Whatever happened between you two is history and what's is going to happen next is fate. You should accept this fact and try to move on rather than ruminating on past events. This is the most effective way to find peace in the wake of divorce and can help you along your road to divorce recovery.
It's is Best for your Case
When feelings get hurt during a divorce, it can be tempting to do whatever it takes to get back at your ex. That might mean trying to paint them as a bad parent so you get a better custody arrangement or lying or hiding assets so you come out ahead in the division of property. Tempting as this might be, it is a terrible idea. If the judge finds out you are lying, you are sure to pay for it in the final divorce agreement.
So rather than scouting ideas to take revenge, focus on what you can do to improve the situation both for yourself and the other person. Establish clear channels of communication with your attorney so they can work to get you the best settlement possible.
