Helping Clients Navigate A Course To A Better Future

Facing a divorce while pregnant

On Behalf of | Feb 15, 2021 | Divorce

Pregnancy can be a wonderful time or an extremely stressful time, depending on the circumstances. If you are enjoying good health, financial stability and a loving relationship while pregnant, this period could be one of the happiest of your life. However, if you have a strained relationship with your spouse while pregnant, there will be a lot of uncertainties in your life, and you may be feeling particularly vulnerable due to this.

If you believe that divorce is a possibility, you’ll probably be worried about what the future holds for your child. You’ll want to make sure that you have the financial stability to raise your child independently and guarantee full custody at least for the period in which you and your newborn will be bonding. There is a lot at stake, but by taking early action, you’ll be able to feel more in control of the situation. The following are some general tips for handling the emotions of divorce while pregnant.

Get support from those you trust

While you may feel alone in your situation, it’s important to remember that there are always people that are willing to support you through this time. Lean on loved ones when you need to. Talking things through can be a huge emotional relief, and they may be able to help you with simple tasks relating to preparation for the baby’s arrival. Joining a support group can also be a great way to bond with those in a similar situation.

Focus on the future

Remind yourself that your child will not be affected by the hardship you are going through right now. When you focus on a positive future for you and your child, your negative thoughts will melt away.

Know your rights

As a divorcing spouse, you have certain rights. It is likely that you will be entitled to alimony and child support as a result of the divorce.

Make sure that you take action to get the outcome that you deserve if you are going through a divorce while pregnant.
