Ending a marriage with dignity after deciding to get divorced

Apparently, next to thinking about death, divorce causes people the most stress. The fact is, it doesn't have to be that way. Married couples in Virginia who decide to get divorced can do so with dignity and respect for each other. Divorce happens to many couples, and there is no mystery to the process. It can be pretty seamless as long as a couple agrees to make it as amicable as possible. 

When aiming for a dignified divorce, experts say couples should focus on three points: the custody and support of the children, spousal support, and the division of assets and debts. Decisions should be made with honesty, fairness and transparency. Professionals say each person should pick at least two people to be on their side during the divorce process: an attorney and a therapist (or support group).

It is also important, experts suggest, to pick battles wisely. The more simple things are between soon-to-be former spouses, the more dignified and less costly the divorce process is likely to be. It will also save on time and energy. By putting bitterness aside, both people could walk away with their heads held high.

The decision to get divorced is never an easy one and one that very few Virginia couples likely make on a whim. If there is such a thing as a good divorce, it is one that is dignified and where one person is mindful of the other. The marriage is ending, but divorce can also be a path to a new future for each individual.
