How To Move Forward After A Tampa Divorce


Many cite the period of their divorce as one of the most difficult times of their lives. It can be stressful to manage all of the life changes you are experiencing and make decisions on what you want in the future. While you may feel too overwhelmed to even think of next steps, making plans can help you move toward a life you will enjoy and thrive in. Part of this is understanding your financial arrangement today, next month, and next year.

If you want legal guidance on how to secure the financial arrangement you will need post divorce, talk to an experienced Tampa divorce attorney. A skilled lawyer will work toward your goals, whether that is maintaining certain assets or being awarded spousal maintenance.

Making New Connections

Life changes can be smoother with a support system in place. While some people can lean on old friends, there are situations where old friends were connections you made during your marriage and discussing your divorce is awkward. Making new friends is part of the healing process for many.

To make new friends, consider joining a club or pursuing a hobby that you enjoy. Often people navigating a divorce choose to pick up a hobby they shed in the past, maybe because their spouse isn’t interested in the activity. Community centers, divorce support groups, fitness clubs, and classes are all great places to meet individuals with interests that are similar to your own.

How Moving Could Impact Your Life

Moving to a new location can be a great way to make a fresh start. For some, it is a path to a whole new way of life. That said, it’s important to understand if moving is an option if you will be sharing custody. Co-parenting comes with its own unique concerns, be sure you are talking through your plans with your attorney before making bold moves.

Similarly, dating will depend on the specifics of your situation. There is no set timeline of when a divorced individual should begin dating. While some begin dating right away and find enjoyment in new romantic relationships, others choose to spend time boosting their personal strength and becoming familiar with their daily routine apart from their ex-spouse. Again, if you are a parent, dating or cohabiting with another romantic partner could have an impact on your co-parenting agreement.

Protect yourself and your future, discuss what you hope your future will look like with a Tampa divorce attorney. Simply hoping you will get the divorce agreement you want while you and your spouse are using the same attorney is not the best solution. Having your own lawyer means you will understand the scope of your options.
