Resources To Guide You Through Your Divorce.

Divorce Resources

Divorce can have a long-term effect on individuals. In order to get your life back on track, it is essential to seek help. Aside from venting to friends and family, it is crucial to get professional help. It is often much easier to cope with a divorce if you have a well structured divorce plan and resources readily available. Here are the top divorce resources we recommend.

Divorce Counseling and Therapy

Divorce matters are often prompted by triggers in the family such as domestic violence, loss of a loved one, hoarding, a special needs child, etc. As a result, divorce not only involves legal issues, but emotional ones as well. There are many benefits in seeking outside help from a therapist or counselor to cope with your divorce.

Therapy can also help prevent mental health conditions, such as depression or anxiety that may result from a divorce. Therapists can help individuals make sense of their divorce. Although divorce is difficult, therapy can teach you necessary coping skills, provide opportunities for your children to receive support, and coach you in how to become comfortable in your “new normal”.

Financial Planning For Divorce

Being single again can often leave many individuals feeling financially helpless. Some individuals may no longer be supported by their ex’s salary and now need to restructure their lives and budgets accordingly. A financial advisor will help you in your divorce process to ensure your financial stability as a single adult. Advisors create a realistic budget, educate you on the financial characteristics of your assets, and determine a long-term financial plan.
