The Five People You Meet During Your Divorce
When I look back over my divorce period, I remember the times, tears and triumphs — and the people who moved me toward and away from each. Whether your divorce winds you through hell or feels like heaven once it’s over, you’ll likely find these folks along the way.
1. The money-devouring divorce attorney. You’ll seek his or her advice, solace, reassurance, assessments, sympathy, empathy and expertise. And you’ll pay. And pay. And pay and pay. It’s too much to hope for. You might get one or two of those things. Don’t think your attorney has all the answers to all the questions — legal, perhaps, but not emotional, logistical, financial or social. Remember, he/she is not your fortune teller, parent, therapist, banker or friend. Set your expectations accordingly. The last thing you need now is the weight of another failed relationship.
