Grief Due to Divorce

Attorney George E. Thompson and his team can explain that everyone goes through the grieving process differently. However, when one spouse seems to be over the grief and the other is in the middle of it, the ability for these spouses to negotiate may be eroded. Time helps parties to go through the entire cycle of grief. However, in some cases, two spouses may be around the same stage of grief, but one party puts on a different persona to cover up this fact. If the spouses can be honest about their feelings, they may be able to heal more easily and be at the same stage of grief at the same time.
