The emotional burden of divorce can make you feel guilty, anxious and depressed. But by definition, divorce is really a legal transaction. Typically, these are lawyers with judges who make evidence-based decisions and end up making a legal decision. This week, I spoke with the authors of The Empowered Woman`s Guide to Divorce, Dr. Jill Murray and Adam Dodge. Dr. Murray is one of the country`s leading experts on unhealthy relationships. She has published a number of books on unhealthy relationships and mental health. His therapy practice is located in Laguna Niguel, California. Dodge is a former divorce lawyer who now dedicates his career to empowering women to represent themselves in family law matters as the general counsel of Laura`s home, where he advocates for the legal rights of survivors of domestic violence and their children. Legal Entanglement is a 2002 television series starring Hacken Lee, Kenix Kwok, Michael Tse and Elaine Ng. Before deciding whether to divorce or not, Murray and Dodge advise you to think about how you`re going to approach it legally and emotionally, not only now, but also in the future. That`s because many of the legal entanglements, from investing to co-ownership for your children, will continue to be affected long after the divorce.
You also need to give yourself space to change your feelings as you move through the process. After a divorce, there will be new opportunities that can change your needs and interests. You may not even be able to imagine these possibilities. In writing their book, Murray and Dodge drew on their professional expertise – their own unique perspective – to answer questions about the process. They wrote the book not only for people who are going through or deciding to divorce, but also for therapists and lawyers to fill in the gaps in their knowledge of each other`s field. What the authors found in their own work is that many lawyers had no first-hand knowledge or expertise about their clients` emotional state. And psychologists didn`t always know the entrances and exits of the legal maze that is divorce. A groundbreaking comparative study of Germany`s struggle for legal justice after 1945, showing how its rival understanding of law and civil rights reflected broader claims of political legitimacy, territorial sovereignty, and national identity in a rapidly changing postwar world. A must for anyone interested in the relationship between German legal history and the international relations of the Cold War. Paul Betts, University of Oxford As we continue our series with Murray and Dodge, we`ll explore the legal pitfalls and pitfalls you should avoid as you move through the divorce process, and how you can support yourself emotionally.
