The most common statement we hear from women facing divorce, or who have completed their divorce, is "I didn't know what I didn't know." They had received no overview of the steps in the process or what time frame to expect for completion. It is stunning that frequently this information is not provided to women. We must be proactive and find our voices so we are prepared!
Divorce is an experience like no other and, without exception, women face anxiety, pain, and uncertainty in the process. Having an organized understanding of the divorce procedure can give women the peace of mind that they have a road map to navigate this often thorny path.
This clearly enables them to prepare for the required life decisions that lie ahead.
