Facing Each Stage of Your Separation in a Virginia Divorce

Posted on Jul 13, 2011 by Hofheimer Family Law

Virginia divorce usually comes after you and your spouse have gone through the stages of separation in VA. These stages are part of the process of marital breakdown. You should be aware of the emotional aspects of this process as you seek a VA separation.

  • disillusionment – partners no longer idealize each other and they begin to see and be annoyed by each other’s faults.
  • erosion – partners begin to express their disappointment with each other. This can often be a time of hurtful, critical words.
  • detachment – often characterized by coldness and distance between the spouses.
  • physical separation – when most couples go forward with filing for Virginia divorce, and go through the process of ending the marriage.
  • mourning – similar to mourning for a loved one who’s passed on. Everyone mourns in his or her own way.
  • second adolescence – during this time, hope and excitement for life returns.
  • exploration and hard work – at this point, you have come to terms with your divorce and can begin to see your new life take root.
