Divorce is arguably one of the most dreaded terms, and experiences a person can go through. The process and subsequent feelings of loss experienced during and after are often equated with that of grief, and it makes sense as similar emotions are experienced in both. People often go through the same emotional grieving stages during a divorce as they would after the loss of a loved one – including shock, anger, guilt, depression and lastly acceptance – though this last step can take some time and may require some outside or third party assistance. However the good news is (yes, there can be some good that comes from divorce) is that getting divorced does not need to be a harrowing experience, it can in fact represent a fresh start, but in order to turn your divorce into the new beginning that you deserve, an expert team is required, which is where Joselowitz & Andrews Divorce Attorneys come in.
