What are some tips for having a healthy relationship with my ex?

Going through a divorce in Colorado means that you are no longer legally tied to your spouse. However, just because you and your ex are no longer married, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is no longer involved in your life in any way. This is especially true if you have children and are sharing custody. Maintaining a healthy relationship is possible if you set some rules for yourself and stick to them.

As the Huffington Post points out, the most important concept when dealing with your ex is to set limitations. When you were married, your ex was probably the person you called when you had an emergency or who you vented to when you had a hard day. However, now that you are no longer husband and wife, you may want to find other people in your life such as friends or family members that you can rely on to fill those roles.

In addition, your divorce settlement may have included things like spousal support or child support. In order to avoid a messy financial situation where one of you owes the other, it may be best that the only money that changes hands between you is the amounts specified by the courts.

Finally, communicating with your ex is not off limits and may even be necessary depending on your situation. However, keeping it to a minimum may be wise, as excessive texting or emailing may only cause tension between you. This is provided as general information on this topic and is not intended to be legal advice.
