  3. Seek support: Going through a divorce can be emotionally difficult, so it's important to have a support system in place. Talk to friends, family members, or a therapist to help you cope with the stress and emotions of the divorce process.
  4. Plan for your future: Divorce can be a time of transition, so it's important to start thinking about your future and what you want your life to look like after the divorce. This may involve setting goals, making a budget, or exploring new opportunities.
