Famously, human beings go through five stages of grief whenever we lose important things in our lives. The stages are as follows:
Whether these five stages of grief are made up or accurate is a debate for another day. But the point is that many people who’ve recently been separated get stuck for a while in stage No. 1. Denial can create substantial problems for you that could lead to a less than ideal outcome regarding the distribution of the marital estate, child custody negotiations, and your satisfaction.
Denial is a problem primarily because it can prevent you from taking action, such as finding appropriate legal counsel. The longer you wait, the more time your spouse may have to collect evidence and develop other advantages to use against you during the divorce process.
