Wow 12 years of marriage , 5 kids and rock star writes a song about how your husband cheated, you must be really ticked off. How do you go from wanting to stick needles in a voodoo doll named Don to getting on with your life ?
1. Keep the kids out of this as much as you are able. Do not make demeaning comments about their father not matter how much you think he is a scumbag. Your children know that they are half of him and may start believing that they must be part scumbag and that you will hate part of them. Vent to your family or trusted friend but not your kids.
2. Try and be civil with Don Jr . You have 5 children together and you will be thrown together the rest of your lives like it or not. Do you really want to have two First Communions because you can't agree where your daughter should have the ceremony ?
Your children will benefit by not having anxiety about each time their parents are together. Kids do not need the drama at their tennis matches, award ceremonies,weddings or even down the road when you have grandchildren 's birthday parties.
3. Take care of yourself. The best revenge is that you move on as a healthy and happy strong woman. Be an example to your young daughters that you can be just fine without having a man in your life. Show your sons that women are tough and how important it is for a woman to be independent . Spend some time healing in a healthy way by eating well, working out and having time to meditate . Be kind to yourself during these difficult days.
I would have much more advice for any client but I hope this gives some insight in how an attorney at Kelly and Kelly would help guide a client during a difficult divorce. It's not just filing paperwork it is dealing with your client in a holistic manner so that they get out of this ordeal with the least amount of damage to themselves and their family.
