A Different Kind of 'Happily Ever After'

Here’s a little secret about divorced couples: they can still be friends. There seems to be a stigma attached to divorce, as well as a belief that once the papers are filed and the matter is settled, the couple will be enemies for life. As the definition of “family” changes and people find themselves in different circumstances throughout their lives, more and more are realizing the value of having their ex-spouse on their side. Just because you weren’t compatible in matrimony doesn’t mean you aren’t good together as friends, or even something more.

Besides making the whole divorce process easier, here are a couple of reasons to remain friendly with your ex-spouse:

They Know You Better Than Anyone

If you were married for even a few years, it’s more likely than not that you built your whole life around your spouse. During this time, they probably got to know your likes, dislikes, insecurities, strengths and weaknesses. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to have someone to talk to who knows all these things about you and who can offer real, genuine insight when things aren’t going well?

It Sends a Positive Message to Your Children

It’s more important than ever to remain at least civil to your ex when there are children involved. Parenting is much easier when you have a friendly and qualified ally to shoulder some of the responsibility. Staying friendly with your ex will go a long way toward preserving the family dynamic and giving your children a sense of normalcy as they’re growing up. It will also prevent your kids from trying to pit one parent against the other, as children of divorce have unfortunately been known to do from time to time.

The reality is that just because you couldn’t stay married to someone doesn’t mean that person should be out of your life forever. An experienced and qualified divorce attorney can help you finalize your divorce with integrity so you can preserve your family and avoid undue headaches.

Mr. Graziano had my best interests in mind when he represented me. He is clearly knowledgeable and handled my divorce quickly and efficiently. I'd hire him if I ever found myself needing a divorce lawyer again. Nadia
Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Hiring the right attorney to represent your divorce case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make! I was fortunate enough to hire Ron to handle my case and had what I believe to be a favorable outcome. I based my opinion on achieving the goals we set in the beginning of the case and comparing my final outcomes to friends and colleagues that went through the process with other attorneys. Thank you Ron! Craig
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Grazaino and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
Ron is an extremely trustworthy lawyer. Listen to what he says and have faith in him, you will be as impressed as I am! I couldn't have dreamed of a better outcome in my case. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to represent me, I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing lawyer!!
His staff is amazing as well!!
