Navigating Divorce with Grace: 5 Lifelines for the Working Mom

Lindsey Obenhaus, a partner at Goranson Bain Ausley discusses how to strategically and efficiently navigate through the divorce process.

Divorce can significantly complicate a working mom’s life, adding stress and emotional challenges. However, with strategic planning and support, you can move through this period gracefully and emerge stronger. Here’s how:

  1. Set Achievable Goals: Begin with clear, realistic objectives for your divorce, focusing on the well-being of you and your children. This approach minimizes stress and keeps you focused on achieving peace and stability.
  2. Cultivate Your Support Network: Surround yourself with supportive family, friends, therapists, and community allies. This network is essential for emotional support and practical advice during tough times.
  3. Prioritize Your Children: Ensure you’re present for both significant milestones and daily moments, adjusting your work commitments as necessary. Your emotional availability is crucial for your children during this transition.
  4. Embrace Efficiency: Use organization and delegation tools to manage co-parenting and personal responsibilities effectively. Streamlining tasks allows you to focus on your family and personal well-being.
  5. Commit to Self-Care: Prioritize your physical and mental health. Simple acts of self-care are vital for navigating divorce stress positively.

Adopting these strategies doesn’t mean sacrificing your career or personal well-being. Instead, they offer a roadmap for balancing professional and family life while discovering resilience and strength amidst divorce.
