Getting a Divorce? The Process Doesn’t Have to Be Overwhelming

When you took your vows, chances are you didn’t think you would find yourself where you are right now. You likely thought you had found the one to be by your side forever. Unfortunately, with about half of all marriages ending in divorce, your chances of getting a divorce are higher than most people would like. However, the process doesn’t have to overwhelm you.


Meet with a Divorce Lawyer in New Port Richey


One of the most important things you must do is meet with a lawyer. An experienced divorce lawyer can answer all your questions and help you decide how you would like to proceed. Some couples are able to amicably end things, while others require a long, drawn-out battle. In either case, having a lawyer on your side can make the process less stressful.


Consider Counseling


There’s nothing wrong with getting help from a professional when you are getting a divorce. Whether you were the one who asked for the divorce or you were blindsided by the request, a counselor can help you sort out your feelings and get on the path to emotional healing. Having a neutral third-party to talk to during the process can help you approach matters with a clear head. There are dozens of counselors in New Port Richey.


Surround Yourself with Loved Ones


You may feel as though you don’t want to burden other people with your problems. However, your friends and family care about you and want to help you through the difficult times in your life. While it may seem strange to vent your frustrations to people you know, it can be cathartic to get it all out to someone who knows you and cares about you. As long as you avoid speaking ill of your soon-to-be ex around any children you share, it is good to vent.

Getting a divorce isn’t a pleasant experience for most people. However, if you take the right steps, you can make the process less stressful and overwhelming. Talking to a lawyer about your options, getting counseling and leaning on your friends and family for support are all ways to make the process easier and speed up the healing process. Our legal team at Ayo and Iken can help you make the best of a difficult situation.

Our Attorneys Are Ready to Fight for You!

Over the past 12 years Ayo & Iken has helped over 5,000 people just like you

Having worked as an investigator and later in my career as a counselor for divorces gave me plenty of exposure to Lawyers. Therefore, I had a lot of resistance and fears of working with any lawyer. Therefore, I did thorough research and found Howard Iken. I must say that I have nothing but appreciation for him. His knowledge, expertise, and support are priceless. First of all he does not sell you a dream, in other words he is upfront and honest at all times. He has also been extremely assertive and a big advocate for my daughter and my rights as a father in the court room. Outside of the court room he has been extremely supportive, accessible, and informative at all times. In fact many times I would send him an email with a question and would be surprised to receive a response right away. After my past experiences working in the system he has shown me that there are excellent lawyers that truly are there for their client’s best interest.
