DIVORCE GUIDE

GOALS FOR THE SOUL PARENTS EDITION


GOALS FOR THE SOUL The most important question you should ask yourself in your divorce is where are you going now? It’s hard to stop and think through the divorce process. Divorce is a problem to which you are going to need to find a solution for. The solution may come through court but will most likely be resolved at a mediation or informal settlement conference. The important thing is to take control over the process BEFORE the process takes control over your happiness and pocket book. Since you have kids the first thing you have to remember is that this person is not going away in your life. Your both parents to your children. That being said its time to figure out how you’re going to work with this person DURING and AFTER the divorce. The assessments in our Divorce for the Soul is to help you determine the best course of interaction with your child’s other parent. Please take the assessment and then come back to it later in the day.
