Guiding People Through Divorce With Grace And Dignity For More Than 30 Years

Connecticut Family Lawyer Gives Tips Post-Divorce

A Connecticut family lawyer can give advice about how to move forward with employment, starting new relationships, and seeking help from friends after a divorce.

Take Time To Recover

Your lawyer sees many people who are going through a divorce, and it inevitably takes time to get over it. People might try to encourage you to simply move on. You will eventually get past the rough patch but will do so when you are ready. The majority of people are able to recover in approximately one year. Some take more time. If you are not able to handle your responsibilities, there is nothing to be ashamed of in seeking professional help.

Pay Attention To Your Job

After a divorce, your job will take greater importance. Jeopardizing it is a mistake. Tell your boss about what you are going through. Maintain the work relationship. If you are not happy in your job, be cautious because that might be due to lingering emotional feelings from the divorce. After a year has passed, if you remain unhappy, start looking for a new job. Make sure you follow the proper procedures such as giving notice. With children, paying close attention to work can help you shift your focus and perhaps feel better.

Avoid Entering Into Another Relationship For A Year

Since you have just gone through a divorce, it is likely that you will be in a vulnerable state. It is possible that it will take some time to be prepared for a new relationship. As you go through the emotionality of divorce and overcoming it, you are probably not able to effectively deal with a new relationship.

Lean On Your Friends

After your marriage has ended, it might be difficult to maintain relationships with certain friends. Some might pick sides. You can listen to what friends have to say, but prior to making a life-changing decision, get help from someone who understands the situation. If it is a friend who is the same sex, that can help. A friend of the opposite sex can cause complications.
