 Bankruptcy G

Most parties in a divorce action do not realize how traumatic the divorce process is and do not make any effort to find emotional and mental health support. If you need help, you should consult with your family doctor or other professionals for guidance and support for counseling.

Spending time on other activities such as hobbies, sports, etc. will help remind you that life is not that bad. There is scientific proof that going for a walk in nature has mental and physical health benefits, and can help clear your mind when decisions related to your divorce must be made.

If you are in need of mental health support or counseling, please be sure to let your divorce attorney know. Such is important for your attorney to know to help guide you through the divorce process.
