Ending a relationship doesn’t mean you can’t separate in a respectful, thoughtful, and open way. As difficult as it may be, remember that at one time you loved each other.
If you have children, it’s even more important to separate with dignity, as the way you separate will have a lasting impact on their emotional health. Many questions will come up during the divorce process.
- How do we tell them?
- What do the children need to hear from separating mom and dad?
- Can custody be arranged in a respectful manner?
- What is a fair and equitable separation agreement?
- Who can I talk to about my hurt feelings in regard to this separation?
Even if one of you is out of the relationship and the other is still committed to it, the separation doesn’t have to be more painful than it already is. With the help of our qualified Ottawa counsellors, you and your ex can go your own way with minimal collateral damage.
