My stomach churned with anxiety every time my lawyer called or sent me a letter as I knew it was just more billable hours. Between my ex-husband and me we spent over $ 34, 000 in legal fees when we litigated our divorce. That was hard-earned money that could have gone toward the kid’s college tuition. If only we had read Michael Heath’s book before going down the ugly litigation path.
My ex-wife and I used a mediator found on The Courtless Divorce directory and know we saved a ton of money by staying out of divorce court. It was also very important to both of us to have a direct say in how the break-up was conducted. We remain friends to this day and even get together with the kids during family events.
The Courtless Divorce was the best $ 12 I ever spent. I had never even heard of Collaborative Law before reading the book. Now that I know what it is I expect that will be the way we will go when we decide to bring our marriage to an end.
I ordered The Courtless Divorce and found it to be both informative and easy to understand. My husband read it after me and now we are speaking with a mediator.
