When you’re facing a divorce, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by everything. You know you need reliable information before you make any major decisions. Where do you get it, though? For most women, advice from friends just isn’t enough.
I went through a divorce myself, and have worked with divorcing women for several years. I know from experience what an impact divorce can have on a woman’s life.
When I went through my divorce, I was emotionally raw, worn down by all the decisions to be made, and frustrated by the lack of good information.
Consequently, I made my fair share of mistakes. Having learned my lessons the hard way, I made a promise to myself that no woman would ever have to face this journey alone.
As a result, I started the WomansDivorce website in 2001 to help other women going through a divorce in the United States, and have done so ever since.
Divorce is complicated. Every day I see the sad outcome of what happens when women go through a divorce unprepared. Unfair property settlements, outrageous attorney fees, and months (or even years) spent battling it out in court.
To help you get the best outcome from your divorce, I created a comprehensive guide based on the actual questions and concerns of real women just like you. Organized in easy-to-follow chapters, this manual will help you understand the basics of divorce and identify what needs to be taken care of before, during, and after your divorce.
It reads like a labor born of love and concern for women and it comes through brilliantly. I’ve documented over $400 worth of books that I’ve bought about separation and/or divorce, but Divorce 101: A Woman’s Guide provided perspective that was more valuable to me than those put together. PSL
When you’re dealing with mixed emotions, upset kids, and an uncooperative spouse, you don’t have the time or energy to spend hours searching for the answers to your questions.
Let’s face it, it’s easy to get distracted, confused, and overwhelmed by all the information available on the internet. You can avoid this needless frustration by getting everything you need in one place, leaving you more time to spend with your children (and maybe even catch up on a little sleep).
