Looking for a Successful Divorce? Follow the Example of "The Surgical Team"!

A surgical team is defined as “A unit providing the continuum of care beginning with preoperative care, and extending through perioperative (during the surgery) procedures, and postoperative recovery. Each specialist on the team, whether surgeon, anesthesiologist or nurse, has advanced training for his or her role before, during, and after surgery.”

Obviously, having a team of highly trained specialists to assist before/during/after an operation increases the chances of having a successful surgery.

Divorcing couples ought to consider the example set by the surgical team; having a team of highly trained specialists, working together, to help before/during/after the divorce should increase their chances of having a “successful divorce”.

Before your Divorce

Meeting with a divorce coach before engaging attorneys can help establish rules for effective, respectful communication; in addition, projecting post-divorce cash flow scenarios with a financial specialist can prepare the couple to formulate reasonable monetary expectations.

During your Divorce

Should there be a glitch during the divorce process, resolution-oriented attorneys appreciate having mental health and financial professionals available to resolve specific issues. Addressing a potential impasse from different perspectives increases the chances of finding a unique solution that benefits all parties.

After your Divorce

While your relationship with your attorney may be over, you may still find yourself struggling with issues related to the demise of your marriage, which can be emotional and in many cases overwhelming. Who better to give you the tools needed to address such issues than your therapist? Addressing such sensitive issues in a timely and thorough manner helps one to “move forward” and heal from past wounds.

Your financial advisor is also someone who will continue to guide you; not only to assist to assist you as you manage your investments, but to help you monitor cash flow projections and calculate any life insurance needs.

In closing, using a team approach to address all issues that arise during the divorce process should give couples the best chance at having a “successful divorce”.
