Handling the Disruption of Moving as a Result of Divorce
Divorce isn’t just one event. It’s a procession of events that can often seem like a play in many acts. Unlike watching a play, however, you have the option to design the order of some of the events. Those who divorce can often be pioneers of the process without knowing it. Just coping in your own way can be something entirely new that no one has ever done before. When coping with divorce, some of the most difficult parts may have nothing to do with the legal aspects of the separation. For example, moving into a new space after divorce can be a process fraught with conflicting emotions, irritating logistics, and difficult choices. You might feel like the “exile,” first moving into the spare bedroom and then having to move into a different space, changing your commute to work and your morning routine, and maybe even staying with friends.
Managing the “Moving” Parts
When you’re divorcing, you might suddenly find yourself part of a team of people you rely on and consult with to make the divorce happen. From your lawyer and/or mediator to your therapist to your kids’ teachers to your financial advisor, you find you’re lost in a maze of forms to fill out and cues you need to respond to. At Divorce Options San Diego, we are a full-service San Diego divorce mediation firm that helps you handle everything from documentation and paperwork to moving out. It can be helpful to come to terms with the fact that all parts of the divorce—not just the legal aspects—are legitimate parts of the process. It’s okay to ask for help or expand your divorce team if moving is stressing you out. You might need, for example:
A real estate agent
Moving professionals, storage, and a U-Haul
An interior design consultant for your new place
A financial advisor
An attorney who can advise on property or updating your will
At Divorce Options San Diego, divorce is always viewed as a system of moving parts and often involves many professionals. We help people manage their divorce teams and can act as divorce transition coaches, business coaches, and life coaches as well as mediators.
When it comes to moving, divorce is most definitely a hands-on affair. We can connect you with realtors and interior design consultants, and we can even help you move. Often, the “next act” of divorce—your new life after divorce—is neglected. At Divorce Options San Diego, we believe the design of your new space can help you shape your post-divorce life. Whether you rent or buy an apartment for yourself or acquire an apartment for “nesting” that you share with your co-parent so you can spend time with your kids, the design and organization of your space helps you lay down better patterns in your behavior and relationships. We can factor these choices into your divorce negotiations and put you in touch with professionals who can help you make the practical and design decisions.
