Some divorce experts say one of the easiest ways to communicate with a spouse during a divorce is to interact with them as if they were an unsatisfied business partner or client. If you have children, experts say to treat the children as your most important business asset.
Also, some recommend having a plan of how to schedule a meeting with a spouse, the issues you want to discuss, and what to do if things become emotional or hostile.
Rather than showing up randomly to talk with a spouse or trying to settle matters over the phone, experts recommend setting up an appointment the same way you would with a business partner or client at a neutral location. Doing this allows both parties to plan and refrain from letting emotions get in the way of what is most important.
