Finding Support When You're Going Through A Divorce

No matter the circumstances of your divorce, it can be a difficult and frustrating time. While dealing with all of your emotions, you’ll also have a lot of practical arrangements to work through, all while still taking care of your family and working.



 
This time can be overwhelming, and you may need some help to get through it. Knowing where to turn to for support can be a great comfort when you’re dealing with divorce, so it’s important to reach out for help when you need it.

Here are some of the routes you can take to find support when you’re going through a divorce.

Your family

Families stick together through thick and thin, and while a divorce can impact an entire family, it’s still important that you support each other during this difficult time. Some of the ways you may need to turn to your family for help include help with childcare, with moving home, and even some financial support. If your family offer to help out, let them - they’re there to take care of you. Having someone else ease the load can give you the time and space you need to process what you’re feeling, knowing some of the more practical things are being taken care of.

Your friends

Your friends can be a big source of comfort during a divorce. They can help by listening and offering advice and taking your mind off things by keeping you busy. It’s important to open up to your friends about how you’re feeling - they’ll be concerned and want to check in on you. It’s not always easy to ask people for support, but when you open up to your friends, you’ll feel much lighter, and can move forward knowing they’ve got your back no matter what.

Your family lawyer

You will have a lot of questions during your divorce, and while you can get some of the answers from friends and family, it’s always a good idea to contact your family lawyer for more specific advice related to your situation. Your family lawyer will be able to advise you on processes, rights, and more, so be sure to use them to get the help you need.

Online support

Another way that many people find support during a divorce is through online support. There are online communities and forums that can be a big help when you’re going through a divorce, helping you connect with people who are going through the same thing. While it’s important to be vigilant about who you talk to and what you share, this can be an effective way of finding support and comfort in an unlikely place.

Divorce is tough in many ways, and while you can follow a divorce checklist to guide you through it, there’s no guide to how you should be feeling or thinking. Lean on those closest to you to give you the support you need, it’s what they’re there for. With the love and support of your nearest and dearest, you can get through this and start looking forward to your next chapter.
