"I would like to let you know that I found your website so invaluable in my divorce process. I am having to represent myself due to lack of finances and I know for a fact I wouldn't have been able to do it had it not been for your fantastic website. I would recommend it to anyone who find themselves in a similar situation to me." Madeleine

Moving on after divorce

Well worth reading is an article on the UK Huffington Post site by Charlotte Friedman, founder of the Divorce Support GroupHow long does it take to get over divorce?

There was also an interesting article in the Mail on Sunday's You magazine a couple of weeks ago, talking about people who manage to stay friendly with their ex-partners - read it here.

One of the reasons we set up Intelligent Divorce is that we know the way you approach your divorce (including your financial settlement) will inevitably affect how easy you find it to move on afterwards. (Whether or not you are able, or indeed want, to remain on such good terms as the two couples in the second article!)

Do keep the animosity that legal proceedings can bring down to a minimum. Do work together co-operatively if you can to come to an agreement on your finances.

Doing so can only help to reduce the stresses that divorce brings.

Not doing so means more of the money you need for your new lives ends up spent on legal fees.
