Managing the Stress of Divorce

September 05, 2013  |   Posted by :   |   Blog

When we get married, we hope it’s forever – most times we believe it. Unfortunately that’s not always the case and a marriage breakdown can be as devastating as bereavement. When a relationship comes to an end it can be the most stressful experience of a person’s life, but with the right guidance, knowledge and legal support, it is absolutely something that you can get through, and hopefully emerge the other side in a much better place.

At Frances Lindsay & Co in Maidenhead, our divorce solicitors are sensitive to the stresses divorce brings – we’ve been through it ourselves and have first-hand experience of the complicated emotions you will be feeling. And it’s important to express those emotions, whether you’re angry, frustrated, heartbroken, grieving or simply feeling overwhelmed. Having to consult a family law solicitor may seem like yet another stressful aspect of your situation but your solicitor is there to give you the legal support you need as well as to help you through your marriage breakdown with knowledge and understanding.

When you’re facing a divorce you may often feel anxious with the anticipation of so many potential changes to your current way of life. Changes occur in every aspect of your life, colouring your past together as a couple and altering the future you always imagined. Your family home, your mutual friends, and your children will be affected too, and sometimes you need something solid to hold onto. That’s where we come in – a reliable and constant source of help for you during this turbulent time.

There’s no way around the fact that life is going to change pretty dramatically when you separate from your partner, but if you’ve got to the point where divorce is the most logical answer to your circumstances then have faith that your life is going to improve. It will! It just takes some time to get there, and it’s really important to give yourself plenty of time to adapt to it. Look after yourself, both physically and emotionally. Surround yourself with supportive friends, family, and, if necessary, objective professionals who can counsel you through this emotional time.

Our family law solicitors are here to help couples in Buckinghamshire and Berkshire who are going through divorce and separation, and we know what an impact it can have on a person’s life. We may not be able to wave a magic wand and make it all go away but we can provide the legal support and professional advice you need to face the unknown with strength and positivity. Let us take some of the weight off your shoulders.
