If you’re one of many Georgia residents whose plans for the new year include ending a marriage, you likely have numerous concerns and, perhaps, worries regarding your or your children’s future. Divorce is never easy and often prompts a lot of emotional turmoil, not to mention additional challenges that may surface as you adapt to a new lifestyle. If you and your spouse disagree about child custody, visitation or property issues, you may feel overwhelmed about it all, even before you file the paperwork in court.

It can help to talk to others who have trod similar paths before you. If you have a close family member or friend who recently divorced, he or she may be able to share ideas about what worked or didn’t work in his or her situation. If co-parenting is a main concern of yours, it would, of course, be most helpful to talk to someone whose divorce also included such issues.

Building a strong network of support is often a key factor to navigating divorce with as little stress as possible. You may already struggle with feelings of loneliness or isolation as you take your first steps as a single parent. If you feel that you have nowhere to turn for support regarding emotional, logistical or legal problems, it may only intensify your grief.
