Addicted to Wedding Cake, The Journey Of Divorce

Addicted to Wedding Cake, The Journey Of Divorce

by Alan Freed , Alisse Camazine , John Pavese (With)

The decision to leave a spouse is one thing. Understanding and navigating the divorce process thereafter is another entirely. Each divorce is different. The good news is that there is a general path in the overall process which can be charted. This book will show you how.

Sure, you can read a pamphlet or get a free half hour with a divorce solicitor to try to understand what's going to happen to you and in which order. However, without parting with even more money, you may not really see through the fog of the overall divorce process that you may endure for many months to come. Addicted to Wedding Cake aims to signpost the route through the jargon and procedures to the day when your divorce is over. It will explain the nitty gritty and provide samples of some of the court forms you are likely to encounter along the way.

This is a guide of how the English and Welsh divorce system works. It's not a guide on deciding to divorce, because that's your personal decision (or a fact if you are the one being divorced). It is about the journey of divorce and will help you to understand what's going on and that you are not alone. Divorce can be an undignified and hollow experience, however this guide will help you to make the best of the situation and manage your expectations.

Growing Up With Divorce: Helping Your Child Avoid Immediate and Later Emotional Problems

Growing Up With Divorce: Helping Your Child Avoid Immediate and Later Emotional Problems

by Neil Kalter

For many years, Growing Up With Divorce has offered divorced parents transformative insight, solace, and practical guidance on how to help their children cope with the stresses caused by marital separation.

Every child is unique, yet there are certain common reactions to the stresses of divorce - anger, a sense of divided loyalties, lasting intimacy issues. Dr. Neil Kalter explains that, for children, divorce is not a single event but is comprised of "a series of events that occur over many years." Identifying three stages of divorce, Dr. Kalter cites the particular struggles associated with each stage and explains how gender as well as cognitive, emotional, and social development also affect how children react.

Dispensing sage advice on everything from understanding and minimizing the anxieties that underlie various troublesome behaviors to smoothing out your child's transitions between her two households to incorporating a new spouse into your family, Dr. Kalter gives parents and the professionals who treat divorced families an indispensable guide to navigating the difficulties of divorce.

Take Back Your Marriage: Sticking Together in a World That Pulls Us Apart

by William J. Doherty

The Good Divorce: How to Walk Away Financially Sound and Emotionally Happy

The Good Divorce: How to Walk Away Financially Sound and Emotionally Happy

by Raoul Felder , Barbara Victor

Raoul Felder, a take-no-prisoners divorce attorney, draws from his experience to show readers how to avoid an acrimonious divorce and move on with life.

There is nothing better than a good marriage. But when a marriage goes bad, there is no better option than divorce to give men and women a chance to start over. Handled wisely, divorce can be a beginning, not an end. It is the doorway to a new life free of hurt, anger, and resentment.

Felder and Victor cover each phase of divorce, from knowing when to call it quits, to choosing a lawyer, to the final decree. They explore prenuptial contracts, mediation, alimony, child custody, same-sex marriage, and life after divorce. They also share some of the most important facts one should know such as:

• The first offer a woman gets when divorce negotiations begin is usually the best.

• In all divorces, income rather than assets determine who pays what to whom.

• Divorce is about compromise. Divorce court is not a boxing ring.

After years of watching how divorce can go tragically wrong, Felder uses his expert knowledge, including case histories from his list of celebrity clients, to suggest how to make divorce more fair, civilized, and painless.

Divorce

Divorce

by Janine Amos

Research now indicates that divorce is one of the most traumatic events in a child's life, one that has long lasting results. This book, part of the series "Separation," helps elementary aged children deal with the anger, frustration and sadness associated with losing a parent through divorce. An interesting format of letters, scenarios and suggestions for coping are accompanied by color photos and drawings designed to support a child emotionally. The book stresses that lines of communication be open from the beginning among family members, and that parents are divorcing each other, not the child. While children often feel like the victims, the book suggests strategies for taking initiatives toward making the adjustment easier for everyone. The scenarios help children identify with similar situations. Parents can learn a lot from reading this book, as well. Resources are provided for further research into this sensitive subject. 2002, Gareth Stevens Publishing,
