You have no idea how long your South Carolina family law case will last. If you’re lucky, you can rapidly resolve issues with your ex-spouse or co-parent. Or things could take a turn for the worse, and the case could escalate and stretch on annoyingly. In either case, here is a strategy to reduce the uncertainty – or at least to reduce the cost of the uncertainty on your life:
Step One: Identify the “pain points” caused by the uncertainty.
For instance, let’s say you want to launch a business, but you don’t know how to budget, because you’re not sure what your child support and alimony arrangement might be.
Step Two: Identify a solution to that problem that would not require you to get clarity.
In other words, assume that you cannot know what your alimony or child support arrangement will be. Despite this obstacle, can you find a solution? For instance:
- Perhaps an accountant who specializes in helping entrepreneurs in transition could help.
- Perhaps you could launch your business “lean,” so that budget overruns won’t matter.
- Perhaps you could secure a loan.
The point is that you want to try invent options will allow you to meet your needs… without your having to resolve the uncertainty.
Step Three: go through this process again and again, as needed.
You have a lot more control over your life, your business, and your destiny that you realize. Take back some control by thinking critically — by using tools like the one discussed above.
