“Why did I start this blog?” Simple – Because I want to develop a forum where we can have a dialogue and engage in discussion about issues such as separation, divorce, its impact on parents and that of their children, outside the law. My years of experience as a family law attorney hasn’t limited my reach to just those issues divorced couples face inside a courtroom. I have observed my clients’ lives, helped them go through the transitions from marriage and separation to divorce and seen how each one handled it, based on their own individual needs, that of their children and, of course, their personality and strengths. I still see it today, every day.
Someone once said to me that you learn the most about a person when you watch them in a major transition in their life. There is truth to that. I have seen many of these transitions. While my focus is to get my clients through their divorce case with their children safe, pride intact and without their bank accounts drained, I have through my experience put the pieces together on how a person successfully transitions through a divorce and how one does not.
That is why this blog exists. To identify, separate and apart from the law and what happens in a courtroom, what husbands and fathers, wives and mothers, who may be going through a difficult marriage, contemplating separation or even going through a divorce can do to ensure they maintain their focus, integrity and sanity throughout.
One thing we won’t do on this blog’s pages is talk too much about the law. Every once in a while, we have to discuss it. That is inevitable. However, this is not a law related website. It’s a blog about relationships, that which we have with our spouses, ex spouses and children. Nothing in this blog is advice of any kind, legal or otherwise. I will share with you my experiences but that’s it. Beyond that, what is right for you is something you have to decide after consulting with your professional, be it a lawyer, therapist or others.
Okay, enough about this stuff. Start reading and starting sharing.
