4.0 out of 5 stars Every Woman Considering Divorce Should Read This First January 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I believe in romance and the Happily Ever After - so why read (and recommend) a book about divorce?

Because what's worse than being unpartnered, is being mated with someone in a loveless relationship. A marriage doesn't have to contain infidelity, substance abuse, mental illness, etc., to be miserable - it just has to lack love, even if it boasts a big house and plenty of toys, including some for the kids, too.

Disclaimer: Lisa Thomson is a "blog friend" of mine, and I like her writing style and life outlook, so I was disposed to like this book.

The book is a combination of how-to and memoir. Many of Lisa's experiences will be different from those of other women: she's Canadian, she and her (now-ex) husband were very well off; they had children aged eight and ten at the time she began divorce filings, AND her husband was employed by a family business, which made things even more complicated.

Some of the resources, especially legal ones, will be different from yours (especially if you do not live in Canada), but yours may be even better; do not assume there is no (free) help out there, you may just have to ask. One point I want to throw in: it's advised you consult with at least five lawyers, to find one who is a good fit for you, and NOT blindly hire the first one you meet. Even if you KNOW you do not want to hire the priciest, sharkiest, ball-busting attorney out there, if you think even for a moment that your stbx (soon-to-be-ex) might hire this person, go for an initial consultation, because in most places, this makes them unable to accept your stbx as a client, due to conflict of interest. Consider that good lawyers are pretty expensive, but not-so-good lawyers generally wind up being even more so.

More About the Author

I am a woman who has gone through a unique divorce and faced unusual challenges. I believe life experience is the true teacher. I am a Mom, a writer and an residential interior decorator. I also love to draw and paint. I love meeting new people and my passion is to encourage women going through divorce. It doesn't have to be 'the end' but rather, a new 'beginning'. I write fiction, non-fiction and poetry. In relation to my published book, the following are my legal experiences;
Divorce Mediation- plaintiff, October, 2005
Court of Queen's Bench, Edmonton, Alberta-as a Plaintiff in Divorce trial-September, 2008
Court of Queen's Bench- as respondent to Slip Motion brought by ex-spouse-January, 2009
Alberta Court of Appeal, Edmonton- as a Respondent (self represented) for Divorce September 2009
Supreme Court of Canada- as an Applicant (self-represented)- November, 2009
All of these experiences have taught me about the law, lawyers, my courage, and sharpened my research and decision making skills.
