How to Calm Your Divorce Overwhelm in 6 Steps

I’ve been in the divorce industry for 14 years. As a lawyer, law firm owner, and now (also) as a legal tech entrepreneur who has launched Hello Divorce, the first of its kind “divorce with benefits” online platform offering on demand legal help and wellness support. I love what I do. Some might call me a proponent of divorce. I’m not. But I do believe, as my friend and colleague, Gabrielle Hartley, wrote about in her new book, some people…

Q&A with Jill Smokler, Founder of ‘Scary Mommy,’ on Life After Divorce

I know so many of you will relate with the story of how I initially found Scary Mommy.

For the first time since I had learned that I was pregnant, I felt all that self-judgment…

Choosing the Right Legal Help for Your Divorce

While Hello Divorce is less than a couple years old, I have been a practicing family law attorney for over a decade at Levine Family Law Group.

He had hired a lawyer 6 weeks prior and wasn’t even sure if his legal team had filed a petition to divorce, and couldn’t get a straight answer from anyone in his attorney’s office about the status of his case.

Forensic Accountants: What They Do and When to Use One

Forensic accountants are growing increasingly popular in divorce cases, and for good reason – unraveling a couple’s financial picture and then dividing that equitably is tricky business. Oftentimes, it’s distrust that income is being withheld or even hidden that leads a person down this path. But you shouldn’t think of a forensic accountant as a financial spy – they can be an incredibly useful resource that can take the pressure off you and your ex to paint a complete and comprehensive financial picture. A forensic accountant can be very helpful when there’s a financial conflict or some confusion.

OK, so you feel totally stuck. All you want is closure and yet your divorce is lingering on and on. You’ve tried everything. You’ve tried nothing. You don’t have any clue what to do next. You have a list so long you don’t know where to start. Relate to any of this? First things first, are you really stuck? To know me is to know that it drives me crazy that everywhere we look, divorce is seen as an event. The truth is, it’s a process. It takes time.

This is Why You Need a Strategy for Your Divorce

We view divorce as an event. As if one day you announce, “I’m getting a divorce,” and the next day your marriage is over. The truth is, it’s a journey. It’s a process. It’s a method by which you transition out of your marriage and re-prioritize your relationships, especially your relationship with yourself. Sometimes there is still love. Sometimes the love that once was has long been extinguished. As renowned psychotherapist Esther Perel says, “Ending a marriage goes beyond the…
