Relationship Trauma From Victim to Victor

Break Up, Break Through, Break Free: How to Transition from Victim to Victor after Relationship Trauma

To truly support our community of self-represented folks navigating divorce – we would need a village. We first reached out to locals Tiffany Denny and Kierstyn Franklin, Founders

Fact or Fiction? 10 Truths You Need to Know if You’re Filing for Divorce

If I could go back and do it again, I’d have still been a divorce lawyer. I just would have shifted the way I practice a lot earlier and spent less time in the courtroom and more time at the negotiating table. But, live and learn and without all of that experience, I would not have been able to call myself a Certified Family Law Specialist. Below are a few #divorcetruths I’ve learned after 15 years as a divorce lawyer,

Q&A: Michelle Dempsey on Divorcing a High Conflict Spouse

I first connected with Michelle Dempsey-Multack on Instagram and it was in that first conversation that I knew we had to spotlight her in a Hello Divorce Q&A session. She walks the talk — having been divorced herself and navigated her own challenges associated with adjusting to life post-breakup (including shared parenting heartache). But more than that, she’s authentic, kind, powerful, engaging and inciteful. While her expertise as a certified divorce specialist, coach, and author is generally shared with women,

Avoiding a Nightmare Divorce: 5 Tips to Foster a Peaceful 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.

10+ Easy Ways to Prepare for Online (Divorce) Court

When Coronavirus first triggered ‘shelter in place” orders, most courthouses closed. Like full on shut down. It was like the Wild West out there for anyone trying to seek justice. Within a few days to weeks, we began to see online courts emerge. As we struggle to get Covid-19 under control, many courts are still requiring or, at the very least, allowing, self-represented litigants to appear in court via video conference. Getting divorced over a video feed can feel ‘anticlimactic’

How Coronavirus is Making Divorce Way Easier

Everywhere you turn, headlines read “Divorce Rate Skyrockets Amid Coronavirus Pandemic.” Same story, same anecdotal evidence from divorce lawyers. The truth is the more people spend time together in quarantine, the more their preexisting relationship issues are amplified. If they were struggling before COVID-19, their problems didn’t magically disappear during quarantine — instead, they led to a breaking point.  Makes sense. Approximately 70% of divorces are filed by women and only after their marriage was on the rocks for years.

Rather, this post is for you if divorce is in the cards and you want to do everything possible to keep the cost and conflict in check. In other words, you don’t want to pay (on average) $27,000 to hire a divorce lawyer or air all of your dirty

Hello Divorce’s Top 10 Posts of All Time

When I founded Hello Divorce, my core values included launching a service that provided an affordable, low conflict, and ‘convenient’ option for separating couples. In order to do that, we had a real uphill battle. I’m not talking about the design, marketing, and/or coding — those things I knew we could tackle by leveraging my knowledge of the legal system with the brilliant development team and outside the box thinkers I had in my tribe. What was really crucial though
