If you’re an Arkansas resident contemplating divorce or already involved in the dissolution process, you might take exception to the above post headline, especially if you view it as a directive from some third party.

After all, it is easy for others to weigh in on your divorce from afar and simply utter overarching advice without knowing what you are personally dealing with.

Easier said than done, right? If you’re like most divorcing spouses, you do make a good-faith effort to focus on a brighter post-divorce life even as you sweat the details of your decoupling during negotiations.

The problem is that it’s not always easy to just let go of past discord and present challenges. Indeed, that contemplated bright future often depends heavily on an acute focus on issues and best interests throughout the divorce process.

The point made by the author of a recent Forbes piece on divorce is that, notwithstanding dissolution-linked difficulties spanning many concerns, a certain letting go and coupled detachment is advisable and necessary. It can dampen harmful emotions, promote mental clarity and lead to enhanced decision making.

As that writer notes, those key goals can be materially promoted when an experienced family law attorney is timely brought on board to help identify issues, craft strategies, negotiate and draft documents. Having a proven legal professional lead an “empowerment team” during divorce can drive best-case outcomes and hopefully lead to that above-cited brighter post-divorce life.
