How do you deal with the emotional effects of an Orlando, Florida divorce? Besides the financial struggles of a divorce, there are the emotional tolls from a dissolution of marriage. There are ways to ease your burden when going through this process.

You can see a therapist while you are going through your divorce. This is a good way to obtain feedback on your situation and deal with the bickering that may occur between spouses during a divorce. It is a good way to build your self-esteem and confidence. It also allows you to vent, and get a response to the reasonableness of your emotional concerns. The therapist can help you deal with the heartbreak of a divorce. They can help you deal with the struggles of a time-sharing issue or custody battle.

In most cases, the therapist’s hourly rate is cheaper than an attorney’s hourly rate. Speaking with a therapist on nonlegal issues will most likely save you money. Speaking with a therapist is much less expensive than telling your attorney about non-legal problems. Attorneys are willing to listen. However, after your first bill from the attorney, if you have exchanged lots of email with your attorney, or have had lots of phone calls between your attorney and yourself, you will probably be glad to find a less expensive listener. Plus, if the court rules that the correspondence or phones call between you and your attorney are considered hand holding, then you may not obtain your attorney’s fees for those emails or calls. 

You can also use other alternatives to reduce your stress level during a dissolution of marriage. These alternatives include exercise, meditation, massages etc. Do something that makes you happy, and do something that makes you feel good about yourself. 

Talking to friends may also be cathartic. If they have previously been through a divorce, they may be able to help you deal with the stressful issues that they also encourage encountered. They can tell you what helped and aided them to get through the situation. You may see that they encountered the same problems with their spouse that you are now encountering.
