Public perception is a major concern for many Texas residents who are contemplating a divorce. They worry about what their family and friends will think of them, as well as coworkers. Getting through your personal and professional lives during a divorce without too many bumps in the road can be tricky, but a recent article had a few tips.
For starters, it is important to make smart moves when it comes to your schedule, particularly your work schedule. A divorce case may necessitate attending court hearings, mediation sessions and frequent meetings with your family law attorney. For the most part, these will likely occur during “business hours” and taking too much time away from work can cause friction with your employer. But, with the right scheduling moves, conflicts can be kept to a minimum.
The recent article also noted that it is important to be discreet at work when it comes to your divorce case. Yes, many of us have coworkers who are also friends, and who may be concerned for those who are going through the emotional stress of a divorce. But, it is important not to share too much with coworkers, so as to avoid unduly influencing your work relationships with your personal life events.
Lastly, when it comes to communication with anyone involved in your divorce case, like your lawyer or even your soon-to-be ex-spouse, the recent article reminded readers to use personal email accounts – never your work email account. Doing so will help you ensure that you are protecting your privacy.
