When you tell your loved ones you have filed for divorce, you will likely get a lot of sympathy from friends and family members. Over time, these people may give you advice.

Still, when one partner serves the other with divorce papers, shock, sadness and anxiety are often common emotions. You do not have to panic, though. If your spouse serves you with divorce papers, you must have a plan for dealing with your situation.
