Accepting your divorce, the settlement and your new life 

It's common for one spouse to rebound quicker with significantly less emotional tie-downs following divorce.  Often this may be the spouse who was awarded a better settlement/judgement and/or was the one who initiated the divorce.

Coping with an unfair settlement

Many experience post-divorce settlement shock.  The shock may settle in before or after your divorce is final.  Between heartbreak, attorney's fees and increased household responsibilities the final settlement is rarely what most divorcees originally anticipated.

While we all have different circumstances, most of us struggle in the months or years following a divorce.   Common emotions include sadness, anger and/or disappointment.  Many of us also suffer from an overwhelming sense of failure and low self-esteem.
