Takeaways From a Pandemic Divorce

Face mask with rings laying on it.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought numerous changes and challenges to our daily lives, and the divorce process is no exception.

When you utilize the collaborative divorce model, you have access to a team of professionals, who will work together to resolve your disputes while staying out of court. A court-litigated divorce often pits couples against each other and leaves a family in tatters due to the adversarial environment it often causes. Someone wins, and someone loses.

This process has become increasingly popular in the wake of the pandemic. The collaborative approach allows for a more efficient, cost-effective, and private resolution of divorce proceedings while providing a support system for the entire family that includes financial neutrals, divorce coaches, mental health experts and child life specialists.

Here are some of the takeaways that we observed from divorcing during the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Emotional supports systems became vital to working through stress, anxiety and loneliness
  • Virtual meetings and scheduling flexibility became the norm since in-person meetings became problematic
  • Clients were able to divorce more cost-effectively using the collaborative divorce model
  • Couples were more open to communicating and compromising
  • Focusing on the future became more common due to looking forward to a post-pandemic life
