What To Do When Your Divorce Is This Weeks News

I  get  questions from potential and current clients about how to deal with the public knowledge (be it local media, your children’s school, your neighborhood or your friends) that you are going through a divorce.

The Huffington Post carried  a good article by Linda Lipshutz, MS, ACSW on high profile divorces, and how to best conduct your business if you are unfortunate enough to be involved in one. So what to do when your friends, neighbors, or the media are dissecting and embellishing every sordid detail? Linda’s article correctly points out that (1) Public attention is short lived, and your neighbors / friends / the media will find another story that catches their attention soon; (2) Connecting with others helps enormously; and (3) No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.

Linda’s advice is spot on, and should be considered by all divorcing Oregonians who find that their private matter is not so private after all.

A link to the full Huffington Post article is here.
