A Trusted Resource To Answer Your Divorce-Related Concerns

Divorce is emotional, and the court system can make it even more so.  Each divorce case is unique in its own way because of the people involved, so the actual divorce proceeding can take on a life of its own. It can be short and painless, or it can be long and painful. A thoughtful, knowledgeable divorce attorney will be able to lead you through the system effectively. Recently, the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act (IMDMA) has been amended. The changes will affect every divorce proceeding. Our attorneys at SAM Law Office are aware of the changes and understand what it means to you. At SAM LAW OFFICE, LLC, our legal experience and knowledge ensure your particular needs are met through this process and that both your rights and any assets you possess are protected. Attorney Susan A. Marks and her associates have successfully represented hundreds of clients throughout the area; her knowledge and abilities have earned her the respect of her peers. She personally oversees each and every case to ensure you get the highly effective legal representation you need and the caring, compassionate service you deserve.

Recovering After Divorce

Although throwing a party may help divorcees deal with some of the difficult leftover emotions of their uncontested or contested divorce, making a complete recovery is a process that takes time. To successfully move on with their lives following divorce, WebMD suggests that divorcees should use the following strategies:

  • Take time to mourn – Even if the divorce was for the best, setting aside time to mourn the lost relationship can help ex-spouses recover emotionally.
  • Work through lingering emotions – Divorcees should find a way to work through lingering emotions from their divorce so that they can move on with their new life.
  • Try new things – After the divorce process has concluded is the perfect time for divorcees to try out a new haircut, go back to school or move to a different location.
  • Remember it’s alright to be alone – Recent divorcees should remember that they do not have to rush into another relationship.

Before their divorce settlement is finalized, those who have decided to divorce their spouse may find that working with an attorney can contribute to a smooth transition into post-divorce life. If you and your spouse are considering getting a divorce, speak with an attorney in your area who can provide you with guidance throughout the process.
