Why create goals? Focusing on the future rather than dwelling on the past leads to a more positive mindset for everyone during separation.

There are lots of decisions that need to be made when you decide to divorce or separate. Knowing where to start can be very tricky and often overwhelming. Creating goals is a simple way of focusing on the future, therefore, bringing structure and order to the process. They ensure each small decision fits within the bigger picture of what you are trying to achieve. Our video explains what a goal is, why create goals and gives some useful examples of the types of goal that can help you make progress.

If you choose to share goals with your partner, you have the opportunity to create joint or family goals. These can be very powerful in guiding the decisions you make such as where you will live and how you will co-parent any children you have.
