How to support Sister going through divorce?

I am somewhat estranged from my sister who lives across the country, but found out through family that she is having a really hard time and her husband is pushing for a divorce. What is the best way for a family to support a sister going through a divorce? If you’ve gone through a divorce, what support did you find helpful?

    there’s really nothing you can do but tell her you love her and if she ever needs anything you will be there for her.

    I found it best that family stay out of the situation in all 3 of my divorces. You can offer moral support but don’t get involved too much in the situation.

    Maybe just reach out to her on the phone, and listen to her, if she wants to talk. This might be a way for the two of you to get closer, because it is sad that you are estranged.

    just call your sister and let her know that you are there if she needs anything … I went through a divorce and really only needed the comfort of my son while going through the divorce as I asked for it first
