Divorce and How Friends Can Help

As Augusta, Georgia divorce lawyers, we see how devastating divorces can be. For instance, divorces divide families, create financial hardships, and foment emotional problems.
This divorce law blog is primarily designed to be about Georgia divorce law and divorce attorneys, along with posts about celebrity divorces. We even throw in an occasional divorce "joke of the day!"
But divorces are no joking matter. And since I know, as a divorce lawyer, that, somewhere "out there," someone reading this post may be suffering from the consequences of a difficult divorce, I thought it might be important to take a moment and simply offer encouragement that things can and will get better for you! Please consider reaching out to supportive family members and friends to help you. Please also consider finding a divorce support group at a local church.
Finally, if you are a friend, or family member, of someone who is going through, (or has recently gone through), a divorce, then please consider how you might help them, whether it be taking them to lunch, giving them a hug, or just being there for them!
Divorce can be tough! But things can and will get better for you!
What do you think? What are some other ways people can deal with a divorce? How can you help a friend going through a divorce?


  1. Very good point, and a good thing for people to think about.

  2. Thank you for your visit and comment! I'm sure you'll agree that, sometimes, we all need support from family and friends!
