Divorce is generally a stressful and unsettling event. At minimum, a major relationship is ending, all sorts of routines are upset, and in the midst of the stress of transition there are legal hoops to jump through before things can be resolved. Add in the volatile emotions that are frequently associated with divorce and you have a difficult situation indeed.
Our role as specialist family law attorneys is to guide you through the legal process. However, we understand that divorce is emotionally turbulent and can be traumatic.
Divorcing with dignity may seem impossible but it can pave the way for future well-being, for you, your ex-spouse, and your children. Divorce with dignity does not mean caving in on matters that are important to you; rather it means calmly asserting your position on the issues, being prepared to listen to the other, and reaching a mutually acceptable solution as adults.
Don’t underestimate the impact of divorce on your emotional state. Many divorced people experience sadness and depression both during and after the divorce proceedings, a natural response to a distressing experience.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by the feelings associated with your divorce, seek out a professional counsellor, psychologist or therapist to help you come to terms with the grief and anger you are experiencing. Divorce is a form of loss, and grief is a normal reaction to loss.
