Maintaining a sense of decorum in the divorce process

On behalf of Peterson Stark Scott posted in Divorce on June 6, 2019.

A couple who was worth billions of dollars might be able to teach others how to end a marriage amicably. British Columbia residents may be aware of the recent divorce of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his now former wife, MacKenzie. Even with billions of dollars on the line, the couple was able to end their marriage without a bang, but rather a consensual whisper.

They, and other high-profile couples, might be able to impart some tips to others who are in a divorce situation. Firstly, couples can still maintain compassion for each other, realizing that divorce is difficult in the best of circumstances. Secondly, knowing that emotional closure may take a lot of time may help individuals move forward positively, rather than holding onto grudges or anger. And if there are young children involved, it’s crucial to put their best interests before anything else.

If couples work together to settle these things as well as the financial aspects of their divorce, chances are they won’t need a family court judge to intervene and make decisions on their behalf. If a former couple considers each other’s feelings when separating, they may be able to continue an amicable relationship, which would be beneficial for their children and other family members. It may make their divorce less awkward for extended family and mutual friends.

A British Columbia divorce lawyer may be able to help a client to maintain some décorum in the divorce process while ensuring all legalities are followed. Keeping things out of court is in the best interests of a client. A lawyer may be able to help a client maintain this goal.
