  4. Divorce Attorney Fan Says:

    These are a lot of fantastic links. Going through a divorce is really hard, but you have compiled a literal virtual support network. It really is fantastic. Are any of those sites really good for kids? My sister and her husband are getting a divorce and my nieces are really struggling. They’re 9 and 10, and I really feel like they could use a support network as well. Luckily it’s not as bad as it could be, since their parents are amicable and the divorce attorney is really fantastic and is making the process as quick and painless as possible.

  5. Michael Hughes Says:

    There are lots of great articles here. In addition look to DivorceMeMike and read up about Collaborative Divorce. This is the latest trend in Family law and is a great way to focus parties on the resolution of issues and to minimize the impact on children as much as possible.
