In most courts throughout the United States, divorce counseling is strongly recommended. Counselors or therapists cannot make problems instantly disappear, however, counseling does enable one to better identify and, ultimately, cope with the more difficult problems which may arise as a result of a divorce. Counseling can offer help to all of the family members, making them become more comfortable with the whole divorce situation.
In this day and age, family counseling is prevalent and proven to be very productive in terms of assisting in the decision-making process with respect to such sensitive issues as visitation, support, and custody. It is also a well known fact that many children benefit greatly from professional counseling during what, for them, is usually a most overwhelming experience.
