Follow these tips to ease tension when asking for a divorce

Asking for a divorce can be one of the tensest situations you ever face. This is particularly true if your spouse doesn't know how you feel.

As difficult as it may be, you don't want to hold back from having this conversation. Here are several tips you can follow to ease tension and push the conversation forward in the appropriate manner:

  • Prepare yourself: From what you want to say to how you'll answer particular questions, prepare yourself to the best of your ability. This will ensure that you're not surprised by anything that comes your way.
  • Choose the right time and place: This important conversation deserves the full and undivided attention of both individuals. Choose an appropriate time and place, as this allows you to focus solely on the conversation.
  • Don't change your mind: It's safe to assume you've spent a lot of time thinking about asking for a divorce. Your spouse may attempt to change your mind, but you should remain firm.
  • Protect yourself: It's best to have this conversation face-to-face, but don't do so if you have concerns about your safety. In this case, it's best to ask for a divorce in a public place or over the phone.

When you follow these tips, you'll find it easier to ask for a divorce and then move forward with the process in a timely manner.

Once you have this out of the way, you can focus on the details of your divorce, such as those associated with property division, child custody, visitation and child support.
