Hi, I’m Angela. I have been a family law professional for almost 20 years. Having worked with hundreds of clients over the years I have seen just about everything, so I think, then something new comes along. I am also the product of bad parenting through divorce and am now a single parent myself.
The purpose of my blog is twofold. First, to get as much information out there as possible for anyone that is in the unfortunate position of going through a divorce or break-up. I would like to provide as much advice as possible with a been there done that mentality and let you know (yes I know this is a cliché) that it does get better. Most of us have been through break-ups before, whether a high school sweetheart or another marriage or anything in between. I know how difficult it can be to check your feelings and do what is in the best interest of your children (if you have them) but in particular yourself. It is too easy to let your feelings of anger, hurt, betrayal, or whatever else get in the way. And in the case of divorce the more you let these feeling cloud your judgment the more it will cost you and the longer it will drag out.
I am currently in the process of writing a book related to this subject. A quick guide if you will to help you through this difficult time without having to sit down and read a 500 page book written by some doctor who may or may not have been through this themselves. It is a practical guide for anyone dealing with divorce and in particular dealing with a co-parent through divorce. I will update you as I progress through this project. In the meantime if you would be so kind as to follow my blog, whether you read it religiously or not, and pass it on to anyone you feel may benefit from it, I would be forever grateful as it will help me in getting my book published and helping as many people as possible.
