Your family was shattered by a divorce and/or bitter child custody battle. Perhaps you anticipate that your upcoming family law situation will be acrimonious. What can you do after an intense family law crisis to reestablish good relationships (or at least productive relationships) with estranged family members? How can you deal with your own sadness, anxiety and frustration about the situation? In this post and in several posts that will follow, our blog will discuss this crucial topic and give you some food for thought.
If you haven’t figured out how to navigate your complex relationships, don’t feel ashamed. The conventional wisdom about how to deal with trouble in family relationships is fraught and full of myths. There are some brilliant pieces of conventional wisdom, obviously: the Serenity Prayer, for one, is quite helpful (“Grant me the wisdom to accept what I cannot change; the courage to change what I can; and the wisdom know the difference.”)
But conventional wisdom is also populated with unscientific ideas about how to manage addiction, how to deal with overweight/obesity, and how to get and stay organized after a crisis.
Stay tuned for some in-depth and interesting tactics and strategies in upcoming posts. Until then, if you need help with your divorce, child custody or other family law issue, call the Toussaint Law Firm, PC right now for a free consultation.
