During a divorce, you’re typically surrounding yourself with support, from friends to family. But they may not fully understand the divorce process if they haven’t been through it. During this confusing time, it’s important you find the voices of those who have experienced divorce—both positive and negative. Listening to their stories can provide the right advice and support for your specific situation.
Podcasts are a great way to hear from those who have experienced divorce firsthand. DivorceForce compiled a list of the top 10 we feel you’ll benefit from most.
