Also, I give my client’s tasks to complete with a list of “to dos.”
Down the Road.
A year from now they will be in a much better place. Divorce is a stressful, cloudy, and dark place. But, in the end, it is manageable and entirely survivable. The storm will clear, I promise you that. I always remind and reassure my clients that we will get through this process together, no matter what happens they will be OK.
