The two biggest challenges that I faced during my divorce were finances and shared custody of the kids.  These two were also inextricably woven.

When my wife and I realized that things were not working out between us, we had what I thought were amicable discussions.  Then, on that day, when we decided that divorce was the only solution, she changed immediately.  Friendliness faded as she was out to get seemingly everything. 

As an independent businessman, my wife was trying to base alimony on my best year ever, claiming that every year thereafter should be better than the one before.  Any businessman knows that the economy cycles and you cannot beat your best year every year.

She was also claiming that I worked too much to have shared custody of the children.  What a Catch-22! She’s claiming that I should exceed my best year every year and that I have to work less if I want to have equal custody of the kids.

My lawyer told me that this was normal.  I didn’t feel normal and I didn’t feel that my lawyer really knew how I felt.  That is when I came across John Williams Men’s Divorce Strategies.  He subtitled his book “Learn How To Win Your Divorce Without Losing Your Shorts or Your Kids!

These were the two very things that were causing the greatest pain.  My wife was trying to take everything…including the kids.  If she had her way (I felt at the time), she would have me out on the street begging for change while she lived beachside with our kids and a new man in her life!

I felt like nobody was on my side or understood my situation until I came across this book.  I learned invaluable techniques that guided me through the process not only logistically but emotionally-there was someone out there who understood!

Anyway, it’s a great book.  If you’re interested in John’s book, you can get it here.  In all of my research, this is the #1 product that I would recommend to all men going through a divorce.
