Complimentary Divorce Resources Call

I'm pleased to announce a complimentary teleconference being presented by experts in the field of divorce on Tuesday, March 25 at 9:15 p.m. EDT for men and women dealing with divorce specific resources to deal with these difficult economic times.

Please review the press release for full details:

Dealing with Divorce in Today’s Tough Times – a Groundbreaking Teleconference

With the home-mortgage crisis in the U.S. wreaking havoc in the real estate and banking industries, breaking up and starting over is harder than ever. This forum was created to help men and women dealing with divorce find answers to some of today’s pressing challenges.

The old adage “Breaking up is hard to do, has never been more true. During upbeat times, navigating the maze of financial, legal and psychological issues that arise in a divorce can be a challenging and daunting process. Add to that a falling Dow, wide-spread job losses, shrinking retirement funds and upside-down mortgages, and you have the overwhelming situation in which many Americans who are seeking a divorce currently find themselves.

In effort to assist those facing this reality, a group of professionals came together and organized a unique and FREE teleconference workshop to be held on March 25, 2009 that brings together legal, financial, psychological, lifestyle, and religious experts in one setting. One of these experts is Paul McGinniss, Founder of Divorce Coaching 4 Men (Long Island, NY). Paul is the creator of Surviving the Fog of Divorce™. We all experience loss at some time in our lives. Paul has experienced many losses -- breaking his neck at 15, the sudden deaths of close friends in college, his cousin's murder, his father's losing "battle" with ALS -- but none of these prepared him for the disintegration of his marriage. “Dealing with divorce was the hardest thing I ever had to do,” says Paul.

Other teleconference participants include:

David Ellis, CPA; Ellis & Ellis CPA, Inc.
Rabbi Perry Netter, B.A., B. Lit., M.A. author of Divorce Is a Mitzvah
Eris Huemer, author of Break-up Emergency
Mary Ann Aronsohn
, MA, Licensed Marriage & Family T
Loring Greene, Realtor Lori Dolan Frymark, CDFA, Financial Advisor SmithBarney
Darius G. Carter, Certified Appraiser
Marlo Van Oorschot, JD, Family Law Attorney
Akilah Kamaria, Hemancipation Lifestyle Manager

Very rarely have so many experts been gathered at one event to talk solely about issues pertaining to marital dissolutions. These experts will provide participants with effective and efficient strategies to dissolve a marriage, separate financial entanglements, and begin the process of putting their lives back together. This advice will be dispensed with an emphasis on the specific issues that have arisen as a result of the economic downturn. The workshop will also address tax and financial issues facing California same sex couples.

Participants will receive a "Divorce Survival Guide" containing over 20 pages of worksheets and additional information that they will be able to use as a reference after the workshop has ended.

There is no right decision

Many times in life we are faced with situations that don't present us with a clear "right" or "wrong" decision. When it comes to divorce, it sometimes seems as if there is no right decision. Emotions run high, couples work hard at oneupmanship or baiting each other into fighting; they look for ways to hurt each other and continually assume aggressive/defensive postures.

It is no wonder that so many bad decisions can get made in this emotionally-triggered state. It is also likely that there is no clear "right" decision with regard to particular issues regarding the relationship or the divorce.

So what do you do?

Make the best decision you can make and then make the decision right.

What do I mean by this?

Make any decision that will move you forward, and then give yourself permission to let the decision be the right one, regardless of how you feel about it. You won't always have enough information, energy, desire, or focus to make a perfect decision. So don't bother trying. Simply make a decision, make it right, and then adjust as you go until the next decision point comes along.

BONUS: Try not to get paralyzed by the emotion or let it drive your thought process. A good way to decrease the emotional pull on the situation is to create a vision of the kind of person you want to be known as after the divorce. Use this vision of your "new" self to guide your decision-making as you go through the process. What you do today determines who you are tomorrow.
