Divorce can be a very stressful experience. From the moment you choose to separate, and for a period of time after the divorce, you are likely to experience feelings of sadness, fear, and loneliness. Even if divorce is clearly the right choice for you, it will still be unsettling.
Seeking psychological counseling can help you move through the process. Counseling in Orange County can be expensive (check to see if it covered by your insurance) but the cost of not managing your emotional state can be very costly in terms of peace of mind, poor decision making and overall loss of quality in your life.
As family law attorneys, we can help you work through the legal aspects of your divorce. We help our clients with child custody, spousal support, property, alimony and many other areas of matrimonial law. What many people forget is that while these are all legal decisions, they are emotional ones as well. A psychological counselor can help you sort through your emotions and figure out exactly what you’re looking to gain from a divorce, making these legal proceedings easier on you. Our attorneys are extremely well trained to advise and assist you through the legal process, but it should be a therapist that helps you emotionally.
If you have children, you may also want to make counseling available to them. Divorce can be extremely difficult for children of all ages.
