Life After Divorce: Houston Divorce Attorney Explains

While the process of going through a divorce seems never-ending, eventually you will reach the light at the end of the tunnel. If you are experiencing the post-divorce blues, there are a few things that you can do to minimize stress and become a happier, more productive individual. Top Houston divorce attorney John K. Grubb provides three steps to a successful post-divorce life.

Read the Fine Print

As ready as you may be to forget the details of the divorce, make sure you are fully aware of all the terms and conditions of the separation agreement. If you have any questions or are unsure of anything, contact your Harris county divorce attorney immediately. There will be enough challenges in your life as a newly divorced individual without realizing you do not fully understand your divorce settlement.

Financial Updates

While the main things (cancel joint accounts, child support payments, etc.) are probably already taken care of, or in the process of being completed, a few other details need to be addressed post-divorce. First, update your personal information on credit cards and personal coverage insurance. You may decide you want to cancel existing cards and open new ones. You should also create a new budget and financial plan, especially if your former spouse was the one that mainly budgeted and controlled the finances.

Focus on the Future

While experts agree that a grieving process is normal after a divorce, remember to focus on the positive things in your life. You have a new life now, with new stresses and challenges, so remember to take care of yourself. Connect with friends, talk to family, or join a support group. Do not neglect your physical fitness either – meditate, pick up a new exercise routine, join a workout class with friends. Post-divorce life has its share of difficult and overwhelming times, but as you go forward, you will discover the perfect formula for your happiness.
