How to Find a Divorce Support Group
by Kim Hess

Finding a support group is very beneficial when dealing with your divorce.  Gaining emotional support from others that understand what you’re going through is one good reason.  Learning about one’s legal rights, how to help your children, and coping with financial burdens are other reasons people going through a divorce want the support that others can offer.

Where can you find divorce support groups? 

  • Family or friends who have gone through a divorce
  • Ask your divorce attorney or mediator to recommend groups
  • Your primary care physician
  • Check internet search engines under “Divorce Support groups" in your area
  • Divorce Support Websites
  • Family Therapists, Social Workers, and Marriage Counselors
  • Family Law Center found in your local courthouse
  • Your religious organizations or clergy
  • Local churches that sponsor non-denominational meetings
  • Check your local telephone book under Divorce, Therapy, Counseling or Mental Health Services
  • Parents Organizations
  • Community service organizations and various government agencies

After you have found groups that you are interested in, be sure to check the times, frequency and makeup of the group to determine if it fits your needs.  Is this particular group all men, all women, or both?  Divorced parents or divorced singles?  It is a good idea to visit several groups to find one that you are comfortable with and is the best fit.

If you cannot find a group that fits your needs, start one!  It may seem a daunting and scary task, but it can be as easy as posting an ad on an internet community board and meeting at a cafe.  You can also seek out people you already know who are divorced or separated to meet and discuss the ups and downs of divorce.

Taking control in a difficult time in your life will ultimately empower you and offers help and hope to others dealing with the pains of divorce just like you. When going through a divorce, you may experience feelings of anger, fear, confusion, and loneliness.  Isolation is common during such a hard time. Let your support group aid you towards recovery and rebuilding a better life!
