Healthy Tips for Dealing with Divorce
1. Create a Support System
If you don't allow yourself to express your feelings, they're likely to bottle up before eventually causing a major problem in the divorce proceedings. To ensure you can talk through what you're thinking and feeling, create a support system with individuals who are willing to listen to you. These individuals should be supportive but should not cause you even more stress by triggering your anger or aggression. If friends or family are too emotionally involved, then consider seeing a counselor who will offer an unbiased perspective. FULL POST

Getting a divorce can be a simple process if both sides can put aside their differences and work together to get it done. It will also save both sides a lot of money because they won’t have to pay their attorneys as much as they would if it is a drawn out process.
