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.

Below are a few #divorcetruths I’ve learned after 15 years as a divorce lawyer,

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.

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.

This article is not “How to Avoid Getting a Divorce.” I’m not a relationship expert and I’d never been so bold as to say I know how to save a marriage. 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

Q&A: Ashley Simpo on Co-mothering, Journaling and Goal Setting

A couple of weeks ago I came across an article about two best friends living in NYC who were struggling to find affordable housing — and realized the best option was to move in together with their kids to save money. How awesome is that? One of these trailblazers is Ashley Simpo, the author of one of my favorite book recommendations, “A Kids Book About Divorce.” I got curious and I pseudo-stalked her online. What I found was that Ashley

10 Benefits of Hiring a Non-Attorney Divorce Mediator

Let me start off by saying, “Thank God for lawyers.” People in the legal profession do amazingly complex work and often make it look easy. Am I the only one who’s super grateful for them? Now that you know I don’t hate lawyers, let me tell you why you should consider hiring a divorce mediator who is not an attorney. The family law structure in this country is super complex. It’s managed to make a tragic situation — the death

How to Co-Parent on the Same Team

I think it’s safe to say that no one arrives in a blended family as their first choice. A marriage didn’t go according to plan and the redirect happened. For me, my first marriage ended quite abruptly (from my side, at least). And while there were layers of pain and grief that went into the decision to divorce, I know now it was the right one for us. It was far from what I wanted in the beginning, but years
