A Change Is Coming

Happy New Year everyone.  This year will be a year of big changes for me.  My youngest daughter will be going to college and I will officially be an empty-nester, I will be selling the home I have lived in for 17 years and I will be releasing my first non-fiction book – Start Here: […]

Christmas

The holidays are just about over and you might be thinking about starting your divorce.  Nobody really wants to be doing this but sometimes it just has to be done. To that end on my website I have a handy checklist to get you started.  In the next few weeks I will be releasing my […]

Holiday Happiness

The holidays are upon us and for those of you that are living in a divided household you have my sympathy. The holidays can be difficult for some people even when everything is going fine, but when you add in a broken marriage, kids that are being shuffled back and forth between households and loneliness […]

Do You Need An Attorney

Do you need an attorney? My answer to that is maybe, maybe not.  What are your circumstances? Do you have kids? Do you have a lot of assets that need to be divided? Is this a high dollar marriage?  Or on the other hand, no kids, no assets or very few and they have already […]

Wasted Time

My ex lives in another state.  He rarely gets down here to see his kids even though he is only six hours away.  When he does come down the kids are usually a side note, and most of the time he is in no condition to spend any meaningful time with them anyway.  You see […]

To Gain Your Freedom You Must First Give It

Your divorced, you are ready to move on, but something is holding you back.  You can’t seem to meet the right person and every time you think you have you end up alone, again. You can’t seem to let go of the past.  You think you have, you think you’re done but every time you […]

The Best Revenge

I have been divorced for 2 1/2 years, for the most part things have been uneventful.  I have full custody of our two children and my ex lives in another state and never sees our kids unless he happens to be in town for something – they are usually an afterthought unfortunately.  Nevertheless, it has […]

Second Act

I, like most of my readers, have gone through a transition.  I turned 50 and after several years of back and forth managed to finalize my divorce.  Now I stand at the precipice of my life as a 50 year old solo parent wondering what next.  For me I realized that after 18 years of […]

When To Let Go

Lately it seems that I have seen a lot of clients that are returning with issues many years after their marriage has ended.  One of the reasons for this it appears, is that one party unfortunately has been unable to let go and move on. I am sure at the time they married they thought […]

Milestones of Life

This week marks a milestone in my life and that of my oldest daughter. She will be getting her driver’s license (maybe – if she passes the test). A very scary proposition indeed. I have been teaching her how to drive, something I had never ever planned on doing, but circumstances have changed and now […]
