During my many years as a Divorce Attorney I found that the people who came to my office for a divorce consultation fell into two broad categories. One was comprised of the people who knew they wanted a divorce and often said "it had been coming for years." They were there to gather information so that they could construct a detailed divorce plan before announcing their intentions to their spouse.
The other group was made up of people who had little to no idea that a divorce was in the offing, said "they were shocked and blindsided," and claimed that the divorce "came out of nowhere." This group of people have no divorce plan in place and frequently have no idea where to start or how to get the critical information they need.
My recently released book, "An Elephant Doesn't Marry A Giraffe - Everything I Learned As A Divorce Attorney", is the first place to turn when you hear the words "I want a divorce." It is filled with invaluable information, tips, and strategies. This book is intended to help those people in the latter category who are in need of help and direction at a critical juncture in their lives. It is currently available on Amazon, in digital, paperback and hardcover formats, as well as Barnes & Noble, and Google Books.
What is unique about this book on divorce is that its invaluable advice does not come from dry, solemn pronouncements or preachy sermons but rather from a multitude of true, compelling stories which dramatically illustrate, in practical terms, what divorcing spouses need to know and how to avoid the critical mistakes which undermine their cases.
Filled with meaningful advice from a front-line soldier of the divorce wars – a successful veteran divorce attorney - the book is designed to help divorcing parties and their attorneys achieve the best possible outcomes in their divorce cases. Some of the areas covered in the book are:
when to consult with a divorce attorney
how to select the best divorce attorney for your case
what to tell and not tell your divorce attorney
what are the costs of divorce, both emotionally and financially
what are the key mistakes which divorcing parties need to avoid
how to move past your divorce in a healthy way.
In the final analysis, all of the stories and advice will better prepare people for the life-altering experience that is divorce, as well as life after divorce.
