Help Your Divorcing Friend See The Light At The End Of The Tunnel

DES MOINES, Iowa, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the friend of someone who is getting divorced, you'll likely be the source of reason in a typically overwhelming situation. Lacey Noel, an attorney and contributor to SupportInaSplit.com, offers some practical options to help you help your friend stay focused on the light at the end of the tunnel.

Instead of offering relationship advice to your friend, try to offer support in a more pragmatic way. One practical way you can help is to become familiar with the state-specific process for filing which your friend will need to follow once he or she decides to get divorced. You can easily search online for more information about the divorce process. Because divorce laws and proceedings vary by state, be sure to include the state name when you're looking for information.

By helping people focus on the steps they need to take, and where they're at in the overall process, you reduce stress by reminding them there's a light at the end of the tunnel.
