Reasons to go through counseling during divorce

Many couples around Texas contend with divorce every year. It is particularly prevalent in Houston, which, according to a recent study, is the most stressed city in the state. While the study took into account numerous factors, it found Houston had one of the highest divorce rates in all of Texas. 

Divorce is usually stressful, but there are ways to make it more manageable. Every divorcing couple should seriously consider counseling. While they may have hired a counselor in an attempt to save a marriage, it does not always pan out that way. However, even during a divorce, having a counselor to discuss matters with can be a huge asset. 

It can help you avoid making a huge mistake

You will naturally feel more stressed during a divorce, and in this haze, you may agree to something you do not necessarily want. Counseling allows you to organize all your emotions. It becomes easier to view matters objectively, so you can do what is best for you and your children. 

It can save you money

It is extremely helpful to simply have someone there to vent your emotions to. Attorneys have many responsibilities in divorce cases, but they are not counselors. Talking with them about your emotions will not be productive, and it will cost you more money the more time you spend with a lawyer. 

It can help you not feel so alone

One of the most difficult aspects of divorce is that you lose the person you normally talk to. A counselor will be there to serve as a shoulder to cry on. Additionally, counselors can recommend you to divorce support groups where you can speak with other people who know exactly what you have gone through. Talking to your friends and family members is always helpful, but they likely don't have the proper professional experience or training you truly need and deserve. Counselors are there to help you get your life back on track.

I’ve worked with many attorneys throughout the United States on many litigation matters and the biggest deficiencies are lack of industry knowledge and poor communication/follow up.." - D.M.
