Divorce Tips and Advice
Whether you are initiating the divorce, or you’re the other party in the dissolution, divorce is one of life’s most stressful circumstances. When children are involved, the anxiety and trauma is exponentially raised higher–resulting in both emotional and health-related issues. Between the “If only I had done such-and-such” or “I just couldn’t take it anymore,” an individual’s coping skills can be maxed out.
Here are two key ways to help you have peace of mind:
1. Understand your legal rights.
Spend the money for a consultation with a reputable divorce attorney at a firm that specializes only in family law. Check the firm’s website for their philosophy, and research their experience. Read or view video testimonials. You need to know what the divorce laws are in your state. At Bohm Wildish, we work with you to devise a plan that is right for your unique situation. We consult with you about your case to determine the correct course of action that will maximize your results. As your legal counsel, we create this plan in concert with you.
2. Create a circle of supportive friends.
This is not the time to go online to matchmaking websites. A rebound relationship will undoubtedly complicate your circumstances. It’s better to spend time with your close friends and/or family. When you are around supportive people who have your best interests at heart, you will have assurance that “this too shall pass.” Whether you are a woman who wants to share secrets with a best friend over dinner, or a man who needs an all-out tennis match with a college bud to express their frustration, it’s time well spent. Let your friends help you in other ways too, like child care or possibly with financial help.
If you are facing, or in a divorce, to maintain your sanity — start with number 1 and quickly move on to number two.
