It is our mission to get rid of the stigma of divorce so people can make a real decision for their family's future that does not come from a place of guilt and shame. We believe that when guilt and shame run the show, families stay stuck in dysfunctional relationships rather than make a movement towards becoming a healthier and happier family that may be under a different framework than marriage but nonetheless still a family.
Through our experience, our attorneys see first hand how divorce can actually leave families happier and lead to positive lives post-divorce. The Atlanta Divorce Law Group is proud to hold The Divorce Stigma Scholarship, for another year, to hear students share their experience with divorce and how it differed from the negative stigma that surrounds divorce today. Share your story with us and explain how a divorce experience of a close friend or family member had positive effects on those involved.
