Separation and Divorce: These are ugly words. They conjure up feelings of pain, disappointment, fear, and uncertainty. What is the first step? How do I get through this?
I remember when I went through my own divorce (yes, divorce lawyers sometimes get divorced too) how stressful it was for me. I feared the impact it would have on my relationship with my children and wasn’t sure what the financial outcome would be. I felt embarrassed and could hardly focus on anything. I just wanted to get through it with the least amount of pain as possible.
