Every time I meet someone who’s been through a divorce they say the same thing “I wish I’d had you when I went through my divorce!” The scariest thing about divorce is that you don’t know what you don’t know so how can you know you need it?
Have you ever shopped at Bed, Bath & Beyond. At the checkout counter there’s a bunch of small items that are meant to catch your attention (Avocado Holder anyone?). You may pick one up and say, “Hmm, I didn’t know this existed. I never knew I needed it.” Now, I’m not likening the need for divorce support to the need for keeping your avocados fresh, however, the gist is the same.
If you’ve never faced a divorce, you can’t possibly imagine what’s ahead. You may have seen some tv shows where a dramatic divorce trial takes place in one scene. If you could condense your divorce to less than an hour, let me know – I’ll hire you on the spot! Divorce is long, divorce is messy, it’s emotional, it’s scary and it can be really expensive. Going through it with the right team of support is the best way to mitigate some of the pain and suffering and reduce the cost.
