A person gets divorced and it’s done, as if it were a one-time happening. The truth is there are really Four Divorces happening all at the same time, and over a period of time. ...[T]here is so much more involved than just the legal piece.
The Four Divorces are:
- The Legal Divorce
- The Financial Divorce
- The Social Divorce
- The Emotional Divorce
Everyone who gets divorced goes through each of these divorces. Since we are all individuals, we go through them in different ways and over different periods of time. Some are faster. Some are slower. They are easier for some, and harder for others. As you and your spouse experience each of these divorces at your own pace, problems may come up that make communication difficult and disrupt attempts at settlement.
The decisions you make now will have a huge impact on you and your children for years to come, perhaps the rest of your life. Make sure you have the divorce information and the advice you need to make the best decisions possible. Make those decisions with that long-term view in mind and consult with Attorney Marcy Jones.
