Divorce Done Easier

Divorce is not easy. It can wreak emotional, financial and physical havoc on you and you family. But in Divorce Done Easier, Carol Delzer shows how divorce can be done differently.

Divorce doesn’t have to be the traumatic expensive and difficult process you’ve seen others go through. In this book, you’ll find the tools needed to make divorce empowering, respectful and transformative, to set up moving forward with a positive future.

Psychiatrists and psychotherapists will tell you that divorce is one of life’s greatest stressors. Psychological studies put divorce right up there with death of a loved one or a critical illness in terms of the havoc it can wreak emotionally, financially and physically. But you probably already know that or you wouldn’t have opened this web site.

After over twenty years in practice where I have worked with countless divorcing couples, I can tell you that divorce does not have to be as traumatic and difficult as so many divorces turn out to be.
I won’t tell you that dissolving a marriage will be a walk in the park. That would be dishonest. But I will tell you that, with the right tools and the right approach, a divorce can be a positive launching pad for what’s next in life.

Why should you trust me?
I’ve been there and done that-and even got the t-shirt! It was my own divorce many years ago that inspired me to find less brutal ways to dissolve a marriage both legally and emotionally.

I became a family law attorney with a specialty in divorce mediation and collaborative practice. And, knowing that the psychological or emotional side of divorce is equally as important as the legal side, I earned my LMFT as a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist.

I have helped over a thousand couples divorce and have witnessed the full gamut of financial circumstances, personality types, and causes for the separation, clients of all ages and ethnicities, and family dynamics. In 90% of these cases we were able to create a mutually acceptable dissolution through a process that was respectful, non-adversarial and much less expensive than so-called “normal” divorce proceedings.

Usually in the beginning of the process, these clients were anxious and uncertain, struggling to figure out just how life would look after divorce. But by the time everything was finalized, the vast majority of them felt confident and empowered.

Like my professional background, this book focuses on the emotional and psychological aspects of divorce as well as options for the legal process.

Why? Because, if you’re in an abysmal place emotionally, you cannot make good decisions. And if you make bad decisions, it will be even tougher to recover emotionally and financially from the dissolution. The two go hand in hand.

Throughout the book, I give real life experiences and show how Divorce can be Done Easier.

“Accessible, Empathetic Book”
Carol Delzer has written a very accessible, empathetic book on a process that usually feels maze-like and downright inhumane. As she demonstrated with her first two books, Collaborative Co-parenting and Positive Discipline for Single Parents, it’s as though you’re chatting with a trusted (but firm) friend who wants to open doors and minds. Divorce Done Easier could easily be subtitled, “Let’s be Grownups, Just This Once.” It’s a comprehensive, thoughtful work and I strongly recommend it.
