Credit and Divorce

When I went through my divorce with my first wife Mindy one of the more uncomfortable aspects was the financial acrimony. To put it simply, my wife and I had acquired a lot of debt. We had to have all the “American Dream” essentials: big-screen TV, hot-tub and swimming pool, nice cars—she drove a BMW and I…

Avoid Acrimonious Divorces with Children at all Costs

  If you are divorcing with children, be sure to opt for shared parenting and make sure that neither parent speaks negatively about the other parent in earshot of the kids.

   Kids with one primary parent become fearful of what they view as a real possibility of the custodial parent not being around too.  They tend to grab hold of every negative comment made about the non-custodial parent and internalize these comments.  Gradually they believe all the negative things, and the more…

Moving Out of the Family Home

The Move Out

One of the hardest things to figure out when Divorcing when you have young children is how to handle the “Move Out” of the family home. For me I wanted to avoid my children being traumatized by them seeing their Dad move out which could be construed as “leaving them”.  In fact leaving my children was the last thing I was doing. I had a picture in my mind of…

Marriage Woes and Your Emergency Fund

Marriage Woes and Your Emergency Fund

Like any marriage, there are going to be fights and disputes. A pretty common one, at least in my household was one that circled around finances.  My husband and I both seemed to work an arm and leg and get barely any time to spend with each other and our children so we could provide for the family, yet every time we would check our bank accounts, we’d just ask “Where did that…

She began to throw whatever she could reach at me.

Chapter 1 - Courting Disaster

The straw that broke the camel's back was one night in particular. My wife stayed out late with the one car we had. She did not bother to call to check in with me. Julie was five months old at the time and getting increasingly sick as the night wore on with a rising fever and had trouble breathing. I wanted to take her with me to the all night pharmacy to see if the pharmacist would recommend some medicine or tell me I should take her to the doctor. I…

excerpts from CHAPTER 3 of my book

"Our Children Come First"

…………..I had my lawyer write up the papers to get us into court, but before the process was finished, my daughter came home from a visit with bruises on her.

There were finger mark shaped bruises on her waist area, and a long mark on her inner thigh that looked kind of like a rod or bar with the length of about three inches and about 3/4” wide. Julie was very upset when I picked her up, and it took about an hour to get her to stop crying. I had no idea…

Are families losing the battle with CPS?

After doing some research, I can’t believe how many groups are out there consisting of parents experiencing great pain and suffering because their children were taken away from them.
