Divorces can be an emotionally draining period. Certain feelings can dominate a client’s mental state depending on what led to the divorce. These include feelings of anger or resentment at a partner, guilt for feeling like the marriage has failed, fear or uncertainty for the future, or event relief that an end is in sight.
While it is natural to have strong emotions during a divorce, it is vital to keep them in check when dealing with the distribution of assets, especially if it is a high-asset divorce, where these emotions can be even stronger because of the money or property involved. Before you go to court, it is important to check yourself for any strong reactions you might have against your ex. Failure to do so can result in any of these aggressive emotions to negatively impact your future business and retirement plans.
