Depending on your taste in movies and television shows than maybe there isn’t much to be learned from Tom – after all he is responsible for Days of Thunder.
But in the world of celebrity divorces Katie and Tom reached a settlement in the blink of an eye. Could skipping the drama and signing the papers be the new trend?
While a TomKat-style quick settlement doesn't get reported on much, it does happen. And there are many benefits to settling quickly and efficiently:
You’ll have more money: A less drawn-out process will minimize the legal fees, which means more money for you, your ex and, most important, your children. Heading into your new life with as many resources as possible will be beneficial to your family.
It’s better for the kids: A quicker settlement is always easier on the children. They don’t want mum and dad battling it out. As much as you will try to hide it from your kids, you are bound to show some pain or stress if it’s a long process.
Your new life will begin quicker: There’s something about those three words — you new life — that seems quite inviting, doesn’t it? You can get to your new life right away with a quick settlement. On the flipside, being single again might be a difficult adjustment for you, so why not get started sooner than later because you will flourish once you get there.
You’ll have less stress: I am not the first to say this, but stress is a killer. Ending a breakup or divorce in the easiest way possible will afford you the opportunity to avoid additional drama and stress. Sure, you might feel pressure starting a new life as a single parent, but arguing is a whole different kind of stress you don’t need on top of all you’re already dealing with.
