You and your spouse have decided that divorce is the best option for you both, but now it is time to break the news to your family and friends. This could be a difficult and emotional process. Larsen Law Firm in Provo can help you with all of the legalities of divorce you may need with the expertise of our divorce lawyers, but we can’t help you break the news to your loved ones. So we have gathered some tips for you to consider trying when you are sitting down with your family and friends to let them know of your decision.
The first people you should tell of your decision of divorce is your children. After you have thoroughly discussed this you can then move on and tell your parents and siblings. This may be hard to do, but they can help you throughout the process. The best way to break the news is by sitting them down in a place where you can have a private discussion without any interruptions. State your decision of divorce as calmly and clearly as possible. It is best to have an idea of what you are going to say before you go and talk to your parents and siblings. You don’t need to go into details right away. Instead you can express your need of support during this tough time in your life.
Telling your friends could be just as hard and telling your close family members. It is best to go about it in the same way. Express yourself as calmly as possible and tell them of your decision. You don’t need to go into details right away. It is best not to talk badly about your ex-spouse as your friends could be friends with them as well. Share what you only feel comfortable sharing.
It is best to keep personal life details to a minimum when it comes to telling your boss and coworkers about your divorce. As casually as possible just let them know you are going through a divorce at the moment. Don’t feel pressured into sharing more than you want to. Make sure you let your boss know that you are going to continue to work hard and this aspect of your life shouldn’t affect your work. It may be wise not to let your co-workers know of your divorce at all, unless you feel it is necessary.
