 World of Warcraft, Life Balance and Your Divorce Lawyers

Stress:  Something You Can Do with your Divorce Lawyer

As office manager in a family law firm, I must acknowledge that, from time to time, things get stressful indeed.  Two days this week were just that:  two court appearances, several cases of unexpected illness in the office, deadlines looming in a very ‘paper intensive’ matter, rescheduled court dates and on and on.

 That’s when I was reminded, again, of the necessity of a meaningful life – work balance, especially if you are doing something life changing such as retaining a divorce attorney, child support lawyer, etc.  So, I talked with some professionals I know and a number of them it turns out are enthusiasts of   World of Warcraft (WOW)    They socialize both with online friends and with ‘real time’ friends through this game.  They get great satisfaction from raiding in the different dungeons in the game.  I also know at least one divorce attorney who just loves Judge Judy  Not for me, and possibly not for you either, I know, but still everybody needs something!  For me, it may be just firing up the lawn mower and attacking the lawn – again.  Or, it may be a quiet afternoon chatting with my son while he cleans up his apartment.  You will have your own way of achieving that balance I am sure. 

 The point here is when you are dealing with divorce, a last will and testament, drawing up a trust, estate planning, child support or child custody – work with the professionals in your life to manage rationally the stress, time, and intensity you put into the various areas of your life – work, sleep, family, relaxation, and the family law or other legal matter you are involved in.

 Stress:  Resources Your Divorce Attorneys Probably Can’t Provide
