Today, divorce is a frequent occurrence. Read a book, turn on the TV, or go to the movie theater and the narrative you’ll discover is bound to include the separation of two formerly happy married characters.
The prevalence of divorce in fiction reflects its presence in the real world. In 2018, one divorce happens every 13 seconds in the U.S. That equates to 277 divorces per hour, 6,646 divorces per day, 46,523 divorces per week, and 2,419,196 divorces per year. Just because these statistics corroborate the number of portrayals you encounter on Netflix doesn’t mean the divorce process is accurately represented. More often than not, the couple’s separation is depicted as spiteful, harmful, and combative, but this is not always the case and it doesn’t have to be.
Atlanta Divorce Law Group knows that regardless of the circumstances, divorce is a painful process. More often than not, mistakes have been made, trust has been broken, and memories become afflictive, so residual anger is a normal part of the process.
That being said, we want to completely change the way our clients view divorce. If you have worked with us before, then you are familiar with our trademarked value system: “Happily Ever After Divorce®.” It’s anchored to the idea that divorce doesn’t have to be the negative, harrowing experience that it is believed to be by the majority of the population. No matter how rampant divorce actually is, the choice to separate from a partner still invited a lot of unwanted negativity and scrutiny for those involved, creating a stigma that makes people afraid to talk about divorce, seek counseling, or consult a lawyer. Our goal is to guide our clients away from that mindset and instead help them view their divorce as the catalyst for restructuring their lives. Divorce doesn’t have to be about “tearing families apart,” it can be the foundation on which former partners can work together to build better lives for themselves and their children. Ideally, it’s the starting point in the pursuit to experience personal development, growth, and happiness.
You might be thinking to yourself, “A lot of divorce firms emphasize collaborative divorce.” While this is true, Atlanta Divorce Law Group’s practices are much more nuanced than that. While other law offices are well versed in legal coaching, the sheer amount of psychological, communicative, and therapeutic training that the team goes through makes our relationships with clients more than just professional. We are as much life coaches as we are legal ones.
In addition to the extensive training the team receives, each one of us has our own “Happily Ever After Divorce®” story, which only furthers our ability to empathize with clients’ quandaries. We want to help clients get to a point in their lives where they can look back, take a deep breath, and realize that they made the right decision, just as we all did. We are forever grateful to our previous clients who have put their trust in us, and we hope to encourage others to do the same so we can help them reach their own “Happily Ever After Divorce®.” After all, the more people we help, the plausible the eradication of the awful stigma surrounding divorce becomes. Every single person deserves to feel confident in these difficult life decisions, and we are here to help you get there at every step of the way.
