Because you have a considerable amount of wealth, you may have felt judged by other people who immediately thought you must have all the happiness you could want due to your financial fortune. Of course, you know differently, especially after enduring what became an unhappy marriage and a now pending divorce.
You, like many other Arizona residents going through this legal process, may feel a myriad of emotions. If you decided to end the relationship, you may feel relieved but possibly also guilty. If you did not make the decision, you may feel hurt, angry and uncertain about the future. Because others may see you as someone who “has it all,” you may even feel like you have no one to turn to for emotional support.
Finding ways to cope
Though you may feel as if you have to put up a strong front or otherwise keep up appearances, you will want to remember that finding healthy ways to cope with your divorce is important. Your physical and mental health could face considerable impacts if you do not recognize and address any challenges you face during this time. Remembering to exercise, eat healthy foods, refrain from using alcohol or other substances, and to look into counseling may be worthwhile.
Having support throughout the process is immensely useful, and as mentioned, counseling may be able to help. Of course, you likely have more people in your corner than you initially think, so turning to friends and family may also help you maintain mental strength during this time. If you have children, you may need to keep them informed about various aspects of the situation, but you do not want to share too much information with them.
Because you face a high asset divorce, your case may already be more complex than others. However, you likely still want to work toward avoiding unnecessary conflicts. In some cases, that may mean avoiding direct contact with your soon-to-be ex-spouse. It may also benefit you to gain financial records to ensure that the other party is not attempting to hide assets during your case.
If necessary, you could have your attorney facilitate communications and enlist other professionals to help uncover financial information. Having legal support during this time could help you better handle the many complicated aspects of your case and allow you to work toward the best outcome possible.
