    The Smart Gal's Guide thru Divorce; Provides The Tools To Help Women Become Informed And Better Prepared

    Houston, TX, May 17, 2017- The journey of divorce is highly complex, and daunting. Sara A., speaker and divorce coach, wants to guide women to find courage and to think through the process better prepared and well-informed with The Smart Gal's Guide thru Divorce; What Lawyers don't tell you (WestBow Press, a division of Thomas Nelson and Zondervan).

    "We know what you're going through and what's up ahead. We call it, 'Divorce Dizziness,'” Sara A. says. "The discovery, the documents, the details and the delays. The dizziness will only last for a season. For most of us, of course, we never expected that life would bring us here. Unfortunately, sometimes, we find that divorce may come into our lives. Sometimes, life brings change.”

    The Smart Gal's Guide thru Divorce includes sixteen chapters of clear, chapter by chapter guidance on topics such as Calendaring, Lawyering, Divorce Coaching, Documenting, Organizing, Protecting, Empowering, and Moving Forward. The Tools section covers "Over 25 Key-Areas of Concern” to be sure to consider, and "The 30 Most-Costly Mistakes” to avoid.

    Sara A. is the founder of Divorce Buddys, and has been divorced twice. This book is not about Sara, and it is not intended to talk people through rebuilding after divorce. "This book has never been done before,” she says. "This book is to guide you through, with 'insider-thinking.' We think it through with you.” Sara A. provides valuable insight into selecting the best attorney, preserving the family nest-egg, limiting financial losses, and smart ways to cut billable hours and control the costly back and forth.

    Following a Bachelor's Degree in Communications from The University of Texas, Austin, Sara built a resume of business development. With a heart to encourage, in 2012 she was inspired to launch Divorce Buddys, providing key information, wisdom and insight for women walking through the complex journey of divorce. She is a certified divorce coach. In 2015, she founded G.O., Gals Only, encouraging single women in a focused discussion setting with foundational truths, faith-based inspiration, outreach and community. In all her work, Sara A. is inspired to encourage women to "Put on Courage.” She is currently available for speaking engagements, radio interviews, TV interviews and meeting with individual clients.

    5 Pieces of Bad Divorce Advice that Bad Lawyers Give Clients by Steven Berzner
     Steven Berzner


    1. “Normal” visitation for a Non-custodial parent is every other weekend and one evening per week. Says who?!! There is no law in any state that I know of that says a non-custodial parent’s visitation is limited to every other weekend and one evening per week. Yes, that is a schedule that many people use. So what? How much time parents spend with their kids depends on the parents and on the kids. What works in one family is a mess in another. Your parenting time should be based on what is best for YOUR children and not what some “normal” visitation schedule is or should be.

    2. 50/50 parenting time is not good for children. Again, says who? In some cases, 50/50 parenting is fabulous for the children. It is exactly what they need. In other cases, 50/50 parenting is a disaster! Either the children are too young, or the parents live too far away, or there are other reasons why a different parenting schedule would work better. Parenting schedules should be made based upon the particular facts of each case.

    3. Joint custody is only in the children’s best interest if the parents get along. This one is true, but only partially. Yes, joint custody requires parents to be able to work together for the children. But you don’t have to get along on everything in order to make joint custody work. You just have to be able to communicate with each other and agree on what is relevant to your children.

    4. Mediation takes longer than fighting in court. This is just plain, straight up, not true. Are there cases where mediation takes a long time? Sure. Are there cases which are resolved in mediation in a couple of sessions? Absolutely. While statistics vary widely, all of the statistics I have ever seen say that resolving your case through mediation is quicker than fighting in court.

    5. The average divorce takes 7 – 13 months. Accurate divorce statistics are extremely difficult to compile. Different sources “quote” different statistics, all of which say different things. So, whenever someone starts quoting you statistics, be careful! The bigger question, though, is: Why does it matter? When you are going through a divorce, do you really care how long the “average” divorce (whatever that is) takes? Or, do you care how long your case takes?

    Bouncing back after a mid-life divorce

    Women spend so much of life nurturing and giving to others that when they find themselves alone—because of an empty nest, the end of a marriage, or the death of a partner—they often struggle with feeling purposeless. The problems of recently-divorced mid-lifers in particular are many. Is there a way to overcome this sense of loss and move toward a life filled with connectedness, fulfillment and happiness?

    Workshop facilitator and speaker Patti Clark, author of This Way Up: Seven Tools for Unleashing Your Creative Self and Transforming Your Life has been dedicated to helping women through various life transitions for more than 20 years. She identifies 7 key actions that women can take right now to move through this sense of loss and toward a life filled with more enthusiasm, creativity, and joy.

    1.   Get Creative!


    7 things you can do right now:

  • Journal – buy a journal you love the feel of and write in it every morning – externalize your internal process.

  • Play with color – buy some colored pens or pastels and just play with the color, see which colors you are attracted to, don’t judge the outcome, don’t try to draw a stunning picture, just play with color.

  • Doodle – get some pencils and doodle circles and lines and squiggles; get lost in the process, the end result doesn’t matter.

  • Garden – play outside. Go get your hands dirty, just dig for a while, plant a small herb garden, plant a flower, play in the dirt.

  • Dance, move to music. No one to watch you or judge, just listen to a song you like and move, feel the music move through you.

  • Cook, play with spices. Experiment, don’t follow a recipe, cook with some spices that smell good.

  • Sew. Don’t try to make anything in particular, just play with putting fabrics together, enjoy the texture and color.


  • 2.   Start Re-Wiring your brain – Pay attention to how and what you think


    7 things you can do right now:

  • Identify the thought process you’d like to transform and set the intention to change it

  • Observe/pay attention to what thoughts you want to change and why – what is the negative impact on your life

  • Shift your focus when those negative thoughts arise

  • Use your imagination – think about something positive, create a positive scenario

  • Interrupt your thoughts and patterns when the negative thoughts arise.

  • Create a specific plan and choose what to do instead of dwelling on the negative thoughts

  • Look within for inspiration and support; practice meditation and visualization.


  • 3.   Be Happy Now - specific steps toward well being


    7 things you can do right now:

  • Practice Resilience - Resilience is the rapidity with which we recover from adversity; research shows that meditation improves our capacity for resilience. Focus on recovering – small steps forward every day.

  • Look at your Outlook - Refers to the ability to see the positive in others, the ability to savor positive experiences, the ability to see another human being as a human being who has innate basic goodness, the ability to say “She means well” and mean it.

  • Where is your Attention – What do you generally pay attention to? Researchers found that people spend an average of 47 per cent of their waking life not paying attention to what they’re doing! Focus on what you’re doing right now – pay attention, savor the moment

  • Practice Generosity - Data shows us that when individuals engage in generous and altruistic behavior, they actually activate circuits in the brain that are key to fostering well-being. Volunteer, help others

  • Get Outside Garden - play in the dirt and get your hands dirty; spend time on the beach, take a walk in the woods.

  • Exercise – moving your body lifts your mood

  • Surround yourself with happy people – who you hang out with matters


  • 4.   Focus on Love and Love Yourself First


    7 things you can do right now:

  • Focus on your own needs. Practice saying ‘No’ to others and ‘Yes’ to yourself.

  • Give your body the nurturing, rest, and comfort it needs.

  • Prioritize time for yourself, time to do what you love, without judgment that it is a waste of time; and set boundaries to protect the time you have prioritized for yourself.

  • Don’t keep blaming yourself for past mistakes, learn from them and let them go.

  • Dream big! Dream without editing, without judgment, without feeling that you ‘don’t deserve it.’

  • Choose to spend time with people who put your up, not down.

  • Read books and watch movies that make you feel good about yourself.


  • 5.   Be Grateful for what you have now


    7 things you can do right now:

  • Start each day, before you get out of bed, by saying one thing that you are grateful for.

  • Keep a Gratitude Journal—Establish a daily practice in which you write down 3 things a day that you are thankful for

  • Use Visual Reminders—The two primary obstacles to gratefulness are forgetfulness and a lack of mindful awareness, so visual reminders can serve as cues to trigger thoughts of gratitude.

  • Remember the Bad—Sometimes it is helpful to remember the hard times that you once experienced and how far you have come.

  • Thank at least one person a day for something they have done. Practice gratitude consciously.

  • Call someone once a week to thank them for something kind they have done.

  • Make a conscious decision to practice gratitude—Research shows that making an oath to perform a behavior increases the likelihood that it will happen.


  • 6.   Pay attention to your distractions


    7 things you can do right now:

  • Instead of hopping on to Facebook, (just a quick peak to see if anyone likes me today)-- UNHOOK – one of the best ways to get back in touch with your self is to give yourself a full day off unhooked. Give yourself a 24 hour no phone, no computer day. Journal, walk, draw, unhook!

  • Instead of having just one more glass of wine… go for a walk at sunset instead of making 5:00 happy hour with wine, make it a happy half hour walk.

  • Instead of watching TV, even when there is nothing on that you want to watch … try using an Adult coloring book – it’s creative, playful and proven to reduce stress

  • Instead of shoving food - any food – in your mouth … volunteer to feed others. Practicing volunteering and service helping others is a great way to feel better about yourself.

  • Instead of shopping, (one more pair of shoes will make me feel better) . . . take time to decide where you would really like to help the world, what problem touches you deeply, then donate that money to a good cause that will serve toward a solution that you will feel good about.

  • Instead of getting insanely busy doing anything else but sitting still… just sit still and breathe. Time yourself – give yourself 10 minutes to watch clouds go by; to watch a sunset; or watch flames in a fire.

  • Even exercise can be a way to avoid getting to know ourselves better… Instead of going out for another run, try sitting quietly and just breathing, and when the urge to jump up feels overwhelming, take another deep breath and just sit and feel where the discomfort is and sit through it.

  • 7.   Inspiration is a soft whisper and a gentle nudge – learn to pay better attention when inspiration comes – and most importantly take action on the inspiration when it does come


    7 things you can do right now:

  • Wake up 5-10 minutes earlier than you normally do. Close you eyes and ask for any guidance for the day. That quiet time just upon waking is prime time to access inspiration

  • Allow yourself 10-15 minutes a day (longer is better) to get lost in the flow of something – doodling, playing an instrument, playing with clay, coloring (Zen Adult Coloring Books are great for this) – in this flow time inspiration often comes.

  • Get quiet, look within for 10 minutes a day. This doesn’t have to be hard – it can be done by walking in nature, by sitting quietly watching a sunset, watching flames in a fire, or just closing your eyes and breathing.

  • Ask yourself a question that you want guidance on then go for a walk and pay attention – perhaps you’ll meet someone on your walk or you’ll see something that gives you a flash of inspiration.

  • Start every morning with an intention. Set the intention deliberately and then pay attention to anything during the day that happens around that intention.

  • Take action on any inspiration that comes. Learn to trust that small, still voice and then act on it. The more you listen for your inspiration and take action on it, the more you will trust it and it will become easier to take action on.

  • Journal about any inspiration and action that you took before you go to bed. Ask for any guidance before you go to sleep. Journal in the morning about any insights from dreams or interesting thoughts upon waking.

    Starting Life Again After A Divorce

    In America, a couple gets divorced every 10-13 seconds, and those between 20 and 24 have the highest rate of divorce. We hear statistics like these all of the time, but not often do we hear about how to get through a divorce, everything from figuring out finances to getting back into the dating game.

    Jeffrey and Gregory would love to share their everyday tips for moving forward after a divorce. The pair are the founders of DivorceForce and are able to speak on how divorcees can release negative feelings, build financial security and social connections, and take practical steps to rebuild their lives.

    7 Ways to a Peaceful Divorce

    The only thing worse than a divorce is a nasty divorce full of gossip, unnecessary expenditures that financial drain both spouses and the added emotional turmoil that comes with fighting, name calling and even physical abuse. Is it possible to have a peaceful and even amicable divorce?

    Joryn Jenkins, a trial attorney with 35 years of courtroom experience, now in private practice where she concentrates on the collaborative practice of family law, and is author of War or Peace: Avoid The Destruction of Divorce Court, says a peaceful dissolution of marriage can only take place if you do these seven things:


    - Don’t assume you must litigate: While a judgement of divorce signed by a judge is required, there are many ways to get to that final hearing. You can negotiate with your spouse on your own. You can hire a mediator. You can hire a cooperative lawyer. The newest and best way is to hire a collaborative team to help you negotiate your divorce. The point is, there’s no need for unnecessary litigation which is costly and can get ugly.

    - Don’t empty joint financial accounts: Some lawyers encourage their clients to empty the bank accounts before “your spouse does it.” This is a declaration of war, equivalent to pushing the red button. The one who empties the joint bank account will lose credibility with the judge. This will also cost you more money in attorney’s fees when your spouse embarks on a search mission to find those assets, and it will also delay the conclusion of your case.

    - Don’t talk trash:If you must vent issues about your ex, beware of the consequences. The only true confidential exchange you have is with your attorney, and that’s only protected if there are no outsiders present. Never trash your ex to your kids as this will only hurt you in court.

    - Don’t post on social media: It’s hugely tempting to brag about your new life before you’re even divorced. Don’t post anything that might be used against you. Details about the keg you finished by yourself or the one-night stands you’ve enjoyed, or the pictures with your new girlfriend will not help your divorce case. Think of all the famous folks who are now infamous idiots just because they had to hit “enter.”

    - Don’t file false claims: Telling the cops that your spouse hit you is not the right way to announce that you want a divorce or to get him or her out of the house. It’s a declaration of war and your kids and bank accounts will suffer in the ensuing firestorm.

    - Always get a second opinion: A lawyer should explain all the options available to getting that final judgement. But lawyers are human. They make mistakes. They have biases. They want to make money. Always get a second opinion before choosing an attorney. But once you do retain counsel, take her advice.

    - Go the collaborative route: A collaborative divorce will save you time and money, prevent emotional trauma, ensure personalized results with which your family can live, and protect your relationships with the people about whom you care. While most divorce processes address only the legal and financial separation between parties, the collaborative process addresses the emotional element of the dissolution of your marriage, too, and consists of a group of professionals who work as a team to help you resolve your divorce.

    “Poems of a Divorcee”

    Compromise is part of marriage, but where do you draw the line?

    Women have frequently made life-changing decisions for the ones they love with the intention of fulfilling a happy marriage. No one understands this more than Merawyn Harrison, who suspended her aspirations of an art career so her husband could obtain a law degree.

    Harrison wants people to strongly consider what is worth compromising for marriage, and remember the emotional toll of divorce on a family. Harrison’s subsequent divorce prompted her to write “Poems of a Divorcee” which stemmed from her despair at the break-up of her family.

    Her book is comprised of several personal poems and haikus, covering a myriad of topics ranging from grief, nature, and art to feminism. She also details her struggle as a single parent raising two sons.

    Her poems tug at the heartstrings of readers, especially those who are recoiling after a recent divorce. She hopes that her book will bring joy and solace to women and others who have undergone similar trying life experiences.

    Divorce Doesn’t have to be a Messy Affair and Gillian Harris is Proving this to Couples

    This summer tabloids heated up with celebrity divorce news: Ben and Jen, Gwen and Gavin, Miranda and Blake, Reba and Narvel; even Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog called it quits. For many couples hurtling towards divorce or the end of a serious romantic relationship, the love ends before the divorce decree is signed or someone moves out. For some though, the emotional circumstances surrounding a break-up are more complex. A growing segment of this group participate in a rite called a Decoupling ceremony to find closure with their ex-partner that a divorce decree or returning an apartment key don’t provide.

    According to Gillian Harris, who holds a master’s degree in spiritual psychology and runs Bless & Clear Sacred Ceremonies in Malibu, California, studies show people involved in divorce believe they spend too much time thinking about their ex after the end of the marriage. “The Decoupling ceremony enables people to shed feelings of victimization, to recognize shared history and to acknowledge and accept the journey into the future with no baggage,” says Harris.

    The ceremony takes different forms based on the individuals involved but usually entails an initial consultation with the two participants followed by a private ceremony where both parties declare their mutual forgiveness and release.

    The ceremony lasts approximately 20 minutes. Fees begin at around $250. Although recommended for both ex-partners, Harris notes that the ceremony can be conducted with individuals. “Often, the emotional toll of divorce weighs heavier on one party and we accommodate them,” says Harris. “The Decoupling ceremony benefits everyone who places equal significance on ending a marriage as they did when they entered it.”

    Divorcing a Psycho: Deceit, Greed and Abuse Stir up Powerful Literary Cocktail, as New Novel’s Title Says it All

    Written with unique flair, by Brian Burns, ‘Divorcing a Psycho: Deceit Greed Abuse’ showcases the shocking, unbelievable and absurd lengths some will take to disband their marriage. The author’s fictional couple were far from a match made in heaven, especially her, who will stop at nothing to send him packing. But will she pay the ultimate price for her evil?


    Divorcing a Psycho



    United Kingdom – With divorce rates at an all-time high, millions of Brits have experience with this most unfortunate of decisions. Some remain good friends with their former significant other, some decide to keep their distance and – in a powerful and entertaining new novel from Brian Burns – some find the experience to be ravenous.

    ‘Divorcing a Psycho: Divorce Deceit Greed Abuse’ pulls no punches when weaving suspense, personality evils and dark humour together in a narrative few authors would be brave enough to publish.

    Synopsis:
    One day Adam returns home to find all his doors locked and his children sat facing a wall in the kitchen. His wife of twenty years orders him to go or she will have him arrested. "Divorcing a Psycho" chronicles the malicious, acrimonious divorce of wealthy couple Adam and Lucinda in a dark, humorous and often tragic, way.

    The scheming Lucinda uses every trick and subterfuge imaginable in her quest to crush her husband Adam and ruin him emotionally and financially. Lucinda has no compunction in using the full forces of the local constabulary and utilises the "Zero Tolerance to Domestic Abuse" laws to achieve her objectives in removing Adam from his home and children.

    Does she succeed and what will be the ultimate price to be paid?

    “From the synopsis alone, anyone will come to the conclusion that Lucinda is crazy and not afraid to stick to her own agenda,” explains Burns, who has also published a self-help book for men. “I wanted to display the side of divorce that rarely gets made public, when one spouse takes a personal turn for the worse and implicates their husband or wife in just about anything to get proceedings to swing in their favour.”

    Continuing, “But there’s a big twist, and I’m not going to hint too much at what it is. Let’s just say that Lucinda’s behaviour, which she believes is going to win her both custody and a lot of money, could in fact be the catalyst for a self-destructive downfall. Chomping at the bit to discover how it all plays out? You’ll need to buy the book!”

    Burns sees wide appeal for his work.

    “For those who have divorced, it will serve as either a chilling reminder of what they went through, or a reminder of just how amicable their disunion actually was. For the single or happily-married, it will be a face-smacking example of how things can go wrong, and hopefully will never serve as a prophecy!” he adds.

    ‘Divorcing a Psycho: Divorce Deceit Greed Abuse’ is due for imminent release on Amazon and Google Play.

    About the Author:
    Brian Burns is a businessman, living and working in Glasgow. He enjoys golf, skiing and keeping fit. While this is the author’s second book, it is his first published novel. He previously published ‘How to Become Alpha Man’, a unique self-help book.

    “The reason I’m not crazy today is that he was crazy then…He married himself a woman who understood that he was a good man, an intelligent man. But he knew enough to allow her to help regulate him. He was that good, he was that kind, he was that bright to see what wasn’t right in his head and he said I got a woman who is willing to deal with. But a woman like that is no value to you if you are not able to listen to it.”
