The Process Begins Before You File


You’ve made the decision: It’s time for a divorce. What next?

The process begins before you even file. Attorney Chris Bruce recommends setting out with two goals in mind as you begin this process.

Your first goal is to obtain a divorce on favorable terms as soon as possible. How do you do this? By getting organized before filing. You want to gather the necessary information before you file so that you are in a better position to meet with your lawyer and focus on settling your divorce. Your second goal is to lay a foundation for your ideal life to begin as soon as your divorce is over. To do this, you need to begin by taking stock of your current situation. This includes your finances. You need to create a budget for both before and after your divorce based on your circumstances. Does any of this sound overwhelming? Don’t worry! There’s a resource to guide you through all of this. This resource will not only tell you how to get organized, but it will show you how you can have the best divorce. Attorney Chris Bruce incorporates easy-to-follow instructions when he takes you through each step of his new guide, written with you in mind: “The Women’s Guide to Getting Organized for Divorce.” By reading this book and applying the proven strategies to your situation, you will give yourself the best opportunity to attain these goals and have the easiest divorce possible.

Summer is right around the corner, which means you’ll soon pile the whole family into the car, ready to brave the road for a vacation. Everyone knows that riding in the car for hours can be torture. But with a little creativity, you can turn the worst part of a long trip into a fun event. PACK A TRAVEL GAME When the excitement of the family vacation starts to wear off, keep the peace and entertain your kids with a travel game. Many board game manufacturers offer travel-sized versions that are easy to pack and play in the car. Before your next road trip, consider purchasing digital Yahtzee, which packs all the fun of the classic game without the dice, or IQ Fit, a logic game with over 100 challenges. Both games cost around $10 and can provide hours of entertainment. INCLUDE THE WHOLE FAMILY Once the travel games no longer pique anyone’s interest, try an activity that can be fun for the whole family: a traditional road trip game. If you have a car full of storytellers, try “Fortunately, Unfortunately.” The rules are simple. The first person starts by saying, “fortunately,” and mentioning something good about the road trip or the destination. The next person (moving clockwise) then follows by saying something “unfortunate” about the previous person’s statement. Take turns with every passenger in the car. If someone stumbles, they get a strike; three strikes and you’re out. The last passenger standing wins. PLAY AN AUDIOBOOK OR PODCAST We get it. Sometimes passengers don’t want to play games. Occasionally, they’d rather relax or take a nap. However, your listening material doesn’t have to be limited to Dad’s favorite music. Instead, consider listening to a family-friendly audiobook or podcast, which can make the longest and most boring parts of your trip an entertaining or educational experience. Almost any popular book is available in audio form, but it can be hard to find an enjoyable podcast. “Transistor” is a science-focused podcast that explores subjects kids and adults will find fascinating. Or if you’re looking for something fictional, try “Storynory,” in which the narrator tells fairy tales and legends from all over the globe.
