Divorce is no long a four letter word

There used to be a time when just the mention of the word divorce would cause all kinds of embarrassment and shame. But divorce has become commonplace in the 21st century, and instead of hiding in the shadows like people used to do in the 30s and 40s, divorced couples can hold their heads high since splitting up these days doesn't hold the stigma it once did. So, Connecticut couples who divorce no longer have to view themselves as relationship challenged.

There are many reasons why some married couples divorce. It could be a mutual decision based on growing apart or a decision of one partner because of an abusive relationship. Whatever the reasons, they are personal and don't not reflect on an individual's value.

A family therapist says divorce is about starting anew and more and more people understand that it is morally acceptable. The key to feeling better about a breakup, the therapist adds, is for people -- especially women who often blame themselves -- to consider talking to a therapist or someone who is a trusted, good listener. However, those who experience ongoing negative feelings may benefit by seeking professional help.

Connecticut residents who are in the midst of a divorce or who are thinking about separating might find much help by getting legal counsel. An attorney would be able to provide guidance in terms in the legalities of divorce, but also may be able to provide the names of experienced family counselors who may be able to help those experiencing unresolved feelings about their divorce. A compassionate attorney may be an invaluable person for those seeking answers to often complex divorce questions.

  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
  • Wendy and her staff were a delight to work with. During this difficult process I felt confident that the outcome would be fair and balanced, as it did. Very supportive, always well prepared and very knowledgeable. Would choose them all over again!
