Family law attorneys are generally full of helpful advice about navigating the legal processes associated with child custody matters, divorce, domestic violence and other issues affecting families that are facing changes and challenges. A great deal of this advice directly pertains to constructing legal agreements, navigating the court process and financial consequences of various options. However, some of the advice that attorneys have to offer is more personal.
When navigating the divorce process, it is not often simply enough to file paperwork properly and ensure that you show up to court dates on time. If you do not handle your emotions and mental reactions to the process in healthy ways, it can compromise the outcome of your negotiations. Strong emotions can cause individuals to react impulsively, out of anger, fear, denial, greed, sadness or guilt.
