Staying Positive: 4 Tips For Moving Out After Divorce Or Breakup
May 16, 2013
For those who experience a bitter breakup or unpleasant divorce with a long time partner, the problem of moving out can be a difficult situation to handle. This life moment can represent a new, fresh beginning for both parties, but immediately after the separation decision is taken, it can be hard to move out on a decent note. We hope the following moving tips will ease the burden of separation and the stress of moving out:
- If you are living in your partner’s home, it’s best to start planning your move, as soon as both of you decide to end the relationship/marriage. Overstaying can cause negative reactions and it would be easier for you to make the transition if you’ll opt to reserve a storage room for your possessions or stay at a hotel or friend temporary.
- During the moving process, remember to remain respectful and calm, as it would bring both parties easier to agreement or compromise when needed. It’s best to avoid the anxiety of moving out simultaneously and set a move out days and plan properly the to-do list (payments, utilities, bank accounts, cleaning, further ownership of furniture, photos etc.). If none of you wants to keep items from the previous relationship, a solution might be to organize a garage sale.
- In case packing might be troublesome for you, consider hiring movers that offer NY packing services as well. The moving out process will be much quicker and less painful.
- Try to stay positive through simple, nice things each day until you start a new life in a new home, if you feel it’s hard to cope with the situation, ask your family or friends for help. They can bring a more realistic approach and offer advice for your “moving out” problem.
We hope that will be helpful for you or for a friend that’s experiencing a difficult separation. Do you have any other suggestions that might help our readers? Be free to leave a comment below:
