Law Firm Newswire



Hackensack, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) September 3, 2015 – “Divorce selfies” are the latest craze to hit social media and for good reason.

A Canadian couple shared a smiling selfie following filing for divorce and it has already received over 30,000 shares on Facebook. The post has since sparked a public conversation on a topic that is often looked at as a private and negative experience.

Nima Ameri, Esq. of New Jersey Law firm Ameri & Associates thinks the recent media and public response to “divorce selfies.” has been a positive one. “Getting a divorce shouldn’t have to be a painful experience and it’s refreshing to see a change in the reaction from the public”. He explained that sometimes life just does not work out as planned and that is why he has adopted the motto “What are you waiting for, get a divorce and enjoy life” with his clients.

Divorces are an emotional experience but with the following tips from Ameri & Associates the process can go as smoothly as possible.

● Try to Put Aside Emotions When it Comes to Division of Assets: Try not to think of divorce as a battle. Cooperation and communication can make a divorce easier and healthier for everyone involved.

● Create Talking Points: Pick a calm time to write down talking points. This helps keep discussion on track when emotions are running high during negotiations.

● Put Best Interests of Children First: As parents, when children are involved, it is best to come up with a plan together to present to any children and keep the lines of communication open. Children benefit from honest conversations and having their parents work as a team whether they are together or not.

● Take Care of Yourself: Divorce can be overwhelming. By remembering to take care of yourself, it is easier to remain positive and healthy during a difficult time.

“Divorce selfies” have opened the door for conversations about healthy divorces that can help alleviate the stress of an often unpleasant situation. By both parties coming into agreement, everyone involved can easily transition into the next chapter of their lives.
