I had more resources when I met her, I searched for a year and a half to find the house (on 10 acres) we lived in and sold my house to get the down payment for our house, used my VA loan to buy it.
I WANTED TO PROTECT MYSELF.
Melvin Belli, a high powered attorney who had been through several divorces. Here is a guy that can help me protect my stuff.
Actually the book is co-written by Belli and psychologist Krantzler. I didn't care about how to get along with my soon to be ex-wife - just save my stuff by playing hardball.
SURPRISE - BELLI DID GET ME ON THE RIGHT COURSE.
Yep but not the way I thought. His advice to calm down and be fair was what I needed (not wanted) to hear. Pointing out that at one time I did love her AND she is the mother of my children. This coming from the high powered attorney that I thought was going to go for the throat, slowed me down a bit.
Then pointing out to me that this could go either way for my kids - they could see my hurt, hate, spitefulness and aggressive attempt to control the situation - or they could see that there are unexpected changes that come into everybody's life and how to cope with that change with grace and calm as best as possible.
Initially I did it for the kids, it worked out that besides them, I too benefited from the calm.
There are other advantages to a calmer approach down the road. Co parenting of the kids was possible only because we could work through the divorce with too much vituperative dialog. A huge benefit was that we were able to work through the property settlement using a mediator rather than having 2 attorneys fight it out.
And lastly we were actually able to remain friendly to each other (after a little time). We are and always will be our children's parents. Without the need to force them to choose sides between their parents makes all our lives better. Without the fear that we would "make a scene" if we were to find ourselves in the same room, without the stress of tensions within a family are worth the price of the book and the price you will have to pay to calm down and go with the flow.
If you are buying this book to go to war with your soon to be ex - you will probably be disappointed - but please don't let that dissuade you - you might just find a better course for your future.
