On Sunday, January 30, 2022, the Denver Post published an article by Louise Rafkin of the New York Times about the difficulty of divorce. It is one of the better pieces we’ve seen on the subject. It also discusses the ways that friends and family can support someone going through divorce.
One piece of advice in the article was to find a supportive person who helps you see yourself in the bright next chapter, not someone who urges you to complain or stay in victim mode. This is especially important when choosing your divorce attorney.
Some lawyers choose to amplify their client’s complaints and escalate the conflict under the guise of ‘fighting for you’. At the Datz Law Firm, we will always help you establish and hold healthy boundaries, but we will also help you look forward rather than backward and make decisions based on who you want to be in the future.
We understand that it is important to allow yourself time to be angry and time to mourn. The article mentioned above would be a great one to send to friends and family so that they can be the best support possible. It is possible to grieve and express your anger while also looking ahead to the future.
The beauty of divorce is that it gives you a fresh start and an opportunity to reinvent yourself. The bright new future may not come as quickly as we want it to, but there is much to be gained from the process of letting go of the past. The Datz Law Firm divorce attorneys won’t waste your time, money or emotional energy fighting over the past – we’ll effectively and efficiently help you create a better future.
