Tips to Make the Divorce Process Easier On You

The experience of going through a divorce can be quite challenging, and will involve a great deal of emotional turbulence. However, there are plenty of people every year who get through their divorce and thrive afterward in their new life.

Here are a few tips that will make the divorce process easier on you:

  • Find support: Lean on family and friends. It’s understandable to need some alone time to process your feelings, but don’t feel like you have to isolate yourself. You have people who care about you and will support you no matter what happens.
  • Seek therapy: Talking to a therapist can help you work through your emotions and achieve clarity. Divorce is a life-changing experience and can be quite painful, and professional therapists can provide you with some good coping mechanisms.
  • Get some exercise: You’re going to have a lot of excess energy and emotion that you’ll need to pour into something healthy. Consider exercising more. The endorphins you get from exercise can do wonders for your body and mind, and the process of working out can help you defuse some anger you might be feeling. Your exercise time is time you can spend just on you.
  • Spend time with children or grandchildren: Focus on being the best parent or grandparent you can be. Enjoy the time you spend with them and let them fill you up.
  • Get financial advice: Your financial picture is going to look a lot different coming out of a divorce, so it’s important to get some expert advice so you can better plan for your future. Financial planners can help you create a financial roadmap to follow as you emerge from the divorce process.

  • "I first came to Ms. Jacquelyn Lutz of Appelhof, Pfeifer and Hart in October of 2016. It was definitely the worst time in my life and she compassionately spoke with me about my options. Ms. Lutz thoroughly explained the laws, statutes, process and what to expect going forward. What was supposed to be one case, turned into three intricate cases that took a huge toll on me and my family. Ms. Lutz represented me in court on all three cases with a vast knowledge of the laws and how to proceed accordingly. During all three cases she kept me informed, calm, gave me resources to utilize, and (most important) gave me a realistic view of what may come next. Ms. Lutz knew each case required a great deal of knowledge and creative thinking on how to legally proceed forward with each case. My family and friends are forever grateful for the amazing representation by Ms. Lutz. I highly recommend Ms. Lutz for anyone needing or considering superb representation for any kind of family law.
