Divorce Support Groups

If you are going through a divorce you will find that your family and friends are supportive and sympathetic. Initially that's ok, but eventually you may want or need more support than they can offer. Sometimes you may feel the need to talk to someone who is in the same situation as you. A divorce support group can fill that need.

Joining a divorce support group allows you the opportunity to meet other people who understand the unique experiences you are going through and validate your feelings. It may take a while to feel comfortable enough to open up with the group so give it time. If after a while you still don't feel at ease consider looking for a different group. The dynamics of every group is different depending on the personalities of the members so if one group isn't a good fit for you another one might be.

Various organizations have support groups for separated and divorced people. Some are faith based, others are non-sectarian. Some are social, others are emotional. These groups can be a good place to find support, compassion and companionship from people who know first-hand what you're going through.

Keep in mind that members of the support group are neither therapists nor are they attorneys and everybody's situation is different. They should be there to offer support, not advice. Always get legal advice from your attorney. Another word of caution, support groups are not legally bound by any type of confidentiality so what you share in a support group is not guaranteed to be kept confidential.
