Taragh Bracken has dealt with divorces law suits that are a result of betrayals from one party or the other. Lying and cheating don’t always need to be physical. In fact, the simple mental notion that one partner is messaging or seeing another person behind the back of their spouse can cause massive problems in a relationship. Bracken is a fan of using collaborative legal practices to help rebuild the lives of her clients, versus working to break them down. When you’re a family lawyer, you are exposed to all the dirty secrets of a family. It can be debilitating to know that you are the source that finalized the end of a marriage, therefore her law firm is focused on providing legal advice that can potentially fix any marriage if dedicated to the work.
Come Clean About Everything
The first thing one must do to rebuild trust is to expose everything that went on behind-the-scenes. This could include times you met up with the said character that is causing disfunction in the relationship and even the amount of contact you’ve had with them throughout the passing of time. Showing the extent of the messages, and explaining what has been said and done is imperative to restoring your relationship. Come completely clean and you at least have an ounce of a chance of getting back to a harmonious relationship.
Administer Open Communication
Now is the time that the guilty partner must open up their lines of communication clearer and broader than ever. Whenever they are out and about, they should report to their partner about when they expect to be back. They should allow the partner to keep an eye on their cell phone at all times. Bracken’s attorneys recommend removing your phone’s passcode and leaving it in a communal spot to indicate the fact that you are up to no funny business.
Allow Your Partner to Express Their Pain
Don’t shrug over what you’ve done, let your partner feel like they are being heard. Own up to your mistakes and regrets, and let them know that you understand how you have hurt them. Don’t try ending the conversation, make your partner feel as though they have reached closure concerning the subject, or at least that they are close to reaching it.
