Barrington Divorce Support Groups
Going through a divorce, and adjusting to life after divorce, is a major life change for most people. This may be especially true for people who have been married many years, and/or for parents who are suddenly single. Part of the healing process involves sharing experiences with others and receiving reassurance that life will seem normal once again.
Divorce Support Through Human Connections And Encouragement
At the family law firm of Manassa Hartman, P.C., we often realize that what our clients need most is the opportunity to talk — and be understood. This is very human, and natural. We listen thoughtfully and share useful ideas about how to navigate the waters of the divorce process, including personal challenges and changes such as realignment of friendships that were once shared with a spouse.

Nonetheless, our fundamental responsibility is to be true to our jobs as attorneys. In our divorcelaw practice, we are conscious of our clients' need to keep a lid on legal fees. While we are compassionate and attentive, we respect our clients by staying focused on the legal matters we are entrusted with: temporary order hearings, discovery of hidden assets, asset division, determination of alimony, child support and child custody.
For all these reasons, we often advise our clients to seek safe outlets for sharing more personal matters with other people. We warn them against posting personal information on Facebook or other online social networks. At the same time, we often suggest ways to heal and grow through:
• Family therapy including children
• One-on-one psychological counseling
• Participation in divorce support groups
