Remote schooling, travel and different views on vaccines can definitely increase sparring in already delicate households. The pandemic is having a huge impact on everyone, including the families we work with. It’s important to focus on your family needs and try and think of creative solutions.
Come to a Compromise – It can be really hard, but it’s vital to decide together on travel restrictions, mask requirements and vaccine status for your familial unit. If you and your ex are not able to land on the same page, and you’d like to know your options, please feel free to reach out.
Listen – Not only to your ex-partner, but to your children, and to yourself. Focus on what is important (health and happiness) and what isn’t.
Trust the Process – It can be difficult to see the forest through the trees, but focusing on the bigger picture and your families overall needs could help you come up with creative solutions together on how to handle these new pandemic-life issues.

“They went for blood,” Alan said as he spoke about his own divorce. His advice? “Strive to have your relationship amicably resolved, if possible. It’s important to hire an attorney who is collaborative, who wants to protect your rights, but not go for the jugular, so it’s a win-win situation.” (He does add his thoughts are different if it’s a toxic or abusive relationship).
“I love what I do because of how much we help couples and attorneys, and because we understand how stressful the process can be. We try to take at least some of the stress of parting and moving on away.”
His own parent’s divorce showed him the need to work things out fairly, amicably, and as stress-free as possible. When he’s not working with clients or diving into files, Alan is a race walker (he even represented the USA!), plays golf, and travels with his wife.
