Divorce FAQs: “The Only Stupid Question is the One Not Asked”

Ending a relationship is an extraordinarily difficult emotional decision. Mental health experts say that the divorce or separation grieving process is similar to that arising from the loss of a loved one.

Even the legal consequences of that decision are not only trying, but sometimes traumatic.  Although there are ways to alleviate the stress associated with the process, the most stoic spouse can heavily feel its impact.

Kirk Montoute Dawson LLP is well aware that spouses in these unfortunate circumstances are usually at the mercy of the legal and justice system. One of our missions is to attempt to, reduce anxiety at the front-end of this process.
