Important Boundaries to Set with your Ex after Divorce

We at Larsen Law Firm in Provo, Utah can provide you with the tips you need as well as an experienced divorce attorney to help you through the process.
It is never a good idea to continue taking loans from your ex. This is one way that they can have control over you and have the ability to manipulate you. That is why when you go to divorce court the judge decides who gets financial help and for how long. The sooner you are financially independent from your ex the better.
Your living space is no longer communal, no ex has the right to show up, let themselves in, break in, trespass or re-enter an exes home, even if they used to live in it. Part of a healthy new divorce life is make yourself feel safe and at home, in your separate new houses. No matter your exes situation you shouldn’t let them live with you. The sooner you two part ways the better.
Divorce settlements will usually spell out who is entitled to get what when it comes to your possessions. Once the settlement is signed and the objects initially moved, that is it. There is zero reason for either person to carry on fighting, arguing, asking or in extreme cases breaking in and stealing things from the other person.
Communication with each other should have boundaries as well. Setting up some ground rules when it comes to calls, texts, emails, and even social media posts is a must. Your ex is no longer your partner and to harass them via smart phone or calls demanding anything is far beyond what any divorced person, should have to deal with. Communication should be kept to a minimum and only about children if they are involved.
