It occurred to me recently that I have inadvertently developed another niche for myself: "Divorce Realty". Don't laugh, I can explain!
Having failed miserably at, not one, but two marriages, I am perhaps the least likely to pass judgment on the demise of a marriage and the most likely to navigate successfully over the sea of unfortunate details inherent in such endeavor.
I divorced successfully the second time (I guess practice makes perfect...). What is a successful divorce, you ask? Many people do not believe that "successful" and "divorce" can co-exist in the same paragraph, let alone the same sentence. I beg to differ.
A successful divorce occurs when both parties recognize that anger, although honored for what it is, has no place in financial dealings. Although marriage is an affair of the heart, divorce is best put in the context of a business endeavor.
Divorce attorneys should charge a flat rate for a divorce, that way they would be less likely to instigate lengthy procedures and stir up dirt, only to drive their incomes up. Perhaps a divorce financial planner and a divorce Realtor should be the main advisers, not the attorneys. The correct advice should take into consideration each party's current condition and formulate the strategy most likely to benefit both parties. The vision should be long term, not myopic, and the welfare of the children should be the most important consideration.
A successful divorce keeps the family unit together. I'm still close to my ex-husband's mother and grown children. Why not? I loved them before the divorce, how can I "un-love" them after the divorce? I will write a second blog about the attributes of a good "Divorce Realtor". I would love your input on the subject!
