With so many marriages in this country ending in divorce, family law attorney, Angie Hallier decided it was time for couples facing divorce to get wiser.
Her recently released book, entitled "The Wiser Divorce," focuses on “realistic strategies and positive solutions that can heal a broken family, help you uncover hidden talents and interests, and grow as an individual.”
In a recent interview with me Hallier, an Arizona-based partner at Hallier and Lawrence PLC said, “When people come into her office after learning that they are going to be divorced it is emotional whether they are the ones that wanted it or not.”
So why so many divorces?
The Arizona based partner at Hallier and Lawrence, PLC, said that there is no number one cause. Sometimes it is just that “two people that were really right to go through life together are not anymore.”
Hallier said that every case is unique and has its own set of issues. Her role is to help people come up with a plan, to help them feel more confident, as well as educate them about the process.
That education also lends itself to empowerment with a new understanding of the law and a new perspective when looking at the facts. The facts will then help them understand what is both realistic and unrealistic.
She helps them understand that divorce has many complicated business aspects and here she offers some advice to those going through a divorce. “Set emotions aside from the legal process of ending of marriage.”
Hallier said, “The significant predictors of how long divorce will take, depends on the ability of the parties to deal with it as a business transaction.”
Although many going through a divorce initially seem shocked, once they’ve gone through her wiser divorce strategies they may soon realize that “they were not really getting what they want out of life from their marriage either,” she said.
Those wiser strategies as featured in her book can significantly impact what she calls “your next best life” after divorce. She explained that these costly mistakes are taking a toll on finances and an emotional investment.
