Navigating Mental Health Challenges in Divorce

Thoughtful, honest and strategic resolution of complex divorces and family law disputes.

Mental health concerns can affect any marriage and impact divorce, especially for families with children. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, nearly 20% of Americans have some form of mental illness. If you or your spouse are dealing with mental health issues during a divorce, consider these four key points:

1. Ensure that you have professional support during the divorce process to help you understand your spouse’s illness and chart a path towards effective coparenting post-divorce.

2. Create an open channel of communication from the onset of your case with your treating professionals and your attorney to ensure transparency and a team approach by all who are working to help you.

3. Prioritize consistent mental health treatment and support during the divorce process; it shows commitment and creates a positive impression in court and your team can help to tailor treatment to your needs during this challenging time.

4. Stay vigilant post-divorce, especially if you or your ex-spouse is still dealing with mental health issues. Many spouses struggle to adjust to coparenting after divorce and need ongoing care and counseling.

Addressing these issues carefully allows individuals to aim for a divorce outcome that prioritizes mental well-being for everyone involved.
