For many, divorce is a stressful and isolating experience. Divorce support groups are an invaluable resource to help you begin the healing process. These groups offer a supportive environment where you can talk to people that are experiencing the same struggles as you are. You can speak about your situation without judgment and learn from the experiences of others.
Below is a list of divorce support groups in the San Jose area.
