About Us

Mission Statement

Divorce is an extremely volatile and challenging time for both adults and children. There are legal, financial, emotional, and social implications that one needs to navigate. Our mission is to help support each individual in their divorce journey for the best outcome while learning and growing from the experience to transform into a better, not bitter person.

 WHY JOIN DivorceResource.community?

1) Knowing that others are going through or come before you with the same concerns, issues and feelings can help you feel less isolated and confused.

2) A support system in addition to your circle of friends, formal counseling groups and family members.

3) A place where you can be anonymous (use different first and last names) to share and ask freely and safely without worried about judgments and other ramifications. 

4) Friends often feel uncomfortable to discuss or listen to such personal matters especially if they know both parties and do not want to take sides or get caught in the middle.

5) Married people avoid you and often treat divorce like a contagious disease.

6) To lower expenses especially attorney fees. Attorneys usually have vested interest as they earn a living on legal fees.

7) Avoiding rushing into another mistaken relationship.

8) More awareness of the impact on children.

9) More education about the divorce process.

10) Better planning and execution.

11) Lessen the feelings of bitterness, self-righteousness, and victimization.

12) A constructive avenue that will help you be calm and focused as you ride the emotional and legal rollercoaster of divorce.

13) Minimize use of public social networking sites for your own personal divorce-related posts. Previous studies have shown that the more a person uses social media sites, the more likely they were to monitor their partners. AAML surveyed attorneys and found that 4 out of 5 used evidence derived from social networking sites in divorce cases, with Facebook leading the pack. Additionally, 81% of the responding lawyers have used or encountered evidence taken from a social media site.

14) Most importantly, this site will assist and inspire to make the divorce journey a personal transformation process to make you even a better person. It's about being better, not bitter. That's our mission.
