I read a lot of articles online about divorce, and all aspects of it. Not many of them contain content that is worth sharing. However, I found a recent post on Philly.com that I find insightful and provides a healthy perspective about divorce, and overcoming the emotional aspects of extracting oneself from a bad marriage.
In my practice, I’ve never met a client who has been happy that their marriage failed. This article recognizes that there is life beyond the divorce process (whether collaborative or litigation), and that life does include happiness. With the right information and team in place, a divorcing spouse can find emotional and financial security, and a future of opportunity and reward.
If you are considering a divorce, are in the midst of the process, or are recently divorced, take some time to consider your vision for your post-divorce life. Understanding your options when choosing the right team of professionals and friends to surround you and assist with the process may be as important as the process itself. If you are interested in learning more about different process choices for divorce take some time to look into collaborative divorce. It is not the correct choice for everyone but, depending on your circumstances, it is an option that you may wish to consider.
