Overcoming the Challenges
Divorce, even under the best circumstances, can be difficult for spouses
to get through. It can feel like your entire world is being turned upside
down and you may be feeling a vast range of emotions, including anger,
fear, and sadness.

- Acknowledge that it is okay to feel what you are experiencing. Even if
your marriage was toxic or unhealthy, it is still reasonable to grieve
its eventual end, so give yourself the space you need to have all of these feelings.
- Do not try to navigate this on your own. Not only will you need an attorney
to address the legal side of things, but you should also seek other forms
of support to address the emotional side of this experience. Do not be
afraid to reach out to your friends and family for help. You should also
consider speaking to a therapist.

interfering in their relationship with their other parent. Additionally,
never use your children to communicate with your co-parent.
