I filed for divorce last year and since then I feel like my case has gone nowhere. I’m starting to wonder if my attorneys are taking advantage of me so they can extend the divorce as long as possible.
Several friends advised me to get a second opinion, so I recently interviewed another lawyer. He told me I should basically be done by now, but that it was too late to change counsel.
Divorce is hard.
I know this from personal experience and from working with clients.
However, it doesn’t have to be ugly. It doesn’t have to destroy your family’s finances and your potential for a good co-parenting relationship with your soon-to-be-ex spouse.
Today I give you an excerpt from Chapter Two of my book, in which we explore the wisdom of hiring a Pit Bull lawyer, otherwise known as an “asshole.”
I read your blog all the time and I have always agreed with you on how to handle divorce, until recently. That’s because my husband just left me and our kids and I find myself absolutely in shock, angry, and desperate to figure out how to support us as he goes about his “new life.”
I think you are unrealistic.
