On Behalf of | Oct 27, 2022 | Divorce

In New Jersey, a negative light provides the backdrop for divorce for many couples. As a result, divorce produces a feeling of the end of what was a good portion of their life rather than the beginning of a new chapter. However, some couples approach the road to divorce differently. For them, divorce is an opportunity to start fresh and move on from their unhappy marriage. So what makes a divorce “perfect?”


You and your spouse will have to negotiate on a variety of topics, from child custody to property division. It’s important to remember that both you and your spouse want what’s best for yourselves and your family. By compromising, you can reach a fair agreement for everyone involved.

Communicate regularly

During the divorce process, it’s essential to communicate regularly with your spouse to ensure everyone is on the same page. It’s not uncommon, for instance, for one spouse to want to move out of state after the divorce. By communicating regularly, you can make sure that both spouses are comfortable with the decisions made.

Be respectful

Even though you’re getting divorced, it’s essential to remain respectful of your spouse. Refraining from disrespecting your spouse means not badmouthing them in front of your children or in public. It also means respecting their decision to move on with their lives, even if you disagree with it.

Don’t try to “win”

The divorce process is not a competition. Both you and your spouse are going through a difficult time, and it’s important to remember that. Trying to “win” the divorce will make things more difficult for everyone involved. Additionally, it’s important to remember that there are no real “winners” in divorce; everyone involved will likely feel hurt and disappointed.

As you can see, a few things can make a divorce “perfect.” By compromising, communicating regularly, being respectful and not trying to “win,” you and your spouse can make the divorce process as smooth as possible. By following these tips, you can reach a fair agreement for everyone involved.
