When a beloved relative or friend dies, the depth of grief you feel knows no limits. If the person who passed away is so close to you it’s as if a part of you is gone too, you may wonder how you will ever go on.
Our office knows that going through a period of grieving is never easy. The pain is especially acute if the person who died is a parent, sibling, or, worse, a child, no matter their age.
Fortunately, most people do eventually figure out how to go on, even though a part of their heart will always be missing.
As a probate law office working with people throughout the state of Florida, we see many clients soon after the death of a close friend or relative. They come to us for legal help dividing the person’s estate. But our firm also works to help clients deal with the intense emotions that arise during this most challenging time in their life, and to offer them resources that may help them cope.
Towards that end, we have compiled a list of resources for people who are grieving who live in Broward County and Palm Beach County.
