Separation May Lead to a More Amicable Divorce

Brandon, FL (Law Firm Newswire) June 25, 2012 - Relationships are generally plagued with many challenges before the spouses start considering a divorce. Sometimes, separation makes the divorce process a little easier on both parties.

Marching out of a series of arguments and marital battles into a divorce may lead to more trouble down the road. If the couple goes into a divorce with a battle mindset, the two are more likely to complicate the matter than if they have a cool down period.

Brandon divorce lawyer, Reginald Osenton said, “A marriage dissolution can be stressful enough without getting involved in unnecessary conflicts. I have seen how a separation can help make the process easier on both parties. During the separation, each person has a chance to adapt to single life and get a little more comfortable with their future living arrangements. It also gives them time to think clearly about their assets, custody, and other important issues that come up in a divorce.”

Taking the separation route is only an option if the couple is willing to work towards a mutual agreement. If both parties are contentious and looking for revenge, the very suggestion of separating could lead to an argument over which person is leaving the family home and living somewhere else.

The period during a divorce is an emotionally conflicting time in everyone's life. People have to deal with uncertainty, friends are unsure about which spouse to talk to, and a person's life goes through a very dramatic transition. Some of these changes are easier to work through when separated.

“Conflicts always lead to a longer divorce process. Anytime a married couple can sit down together to work out the details of their divorce, both parties are better off,” said Brandon divorce attorney Osenton. “If some time apart can help a couple get to that point, they will take a lot of stress out of the process.”

According to the American Bar Association, 95% of divorces do not end up in a contested trial. That means most couples find a way to work out their differences. However, a lawyer should always be involved in the process even if the dissolution is a mutual decision.
