Although 1 in 4 Australians are getting divorced each year, divorce and separation are subjects which remain a mystery to a large majority of our population. There’s also a lot to think about during a separation or divorce, including moving house, dividing possessions, organising the best care for the children and telling family around you, all the while continuing your job and trying to maintain your life.
For some people, the separation and even divorce phase may take a considerable amount of time, and tends to overflow into other areas of their life, which tends to exacerbate stress even further. Given the effect it has on wellbeing, it makes sense that we all learn to try and navigate through this process in the most psychologically healthy way we can. The way we feel mentally can make a big difference to our experience.
The mystery surrounding the way in which the Family Court process works in relation to de facto separation and divorces causes significant stress for the parties who are involved, their families, friends and sometimes their children. This stress can be ameliorated through understanding the way the Family Court process works so those involved can be aware of what may happen next which will allow them to be legally and emotionally prepared.
An understanding of these next steps will assist parties to have constructive discussions with their ex partners, assess what assistance they require and remain focussed on reaching a resolution.
As someone involved in the separation process, you can ask yourself what you can do to support your own wellbeing during this difficult time. How do I make the right decisions during the legal process? How do I handle my stress levels? How do I control the anxiety I am experiencing? How do I have time for grieving the end of the relationship? How do I make sure that I am not driven by the negative emotions I am feeling?
You are in control of much more than they think. We are all more than the adversity we are experience.
