About Me:
Currently going through a painful divorce. We have an 8 month old boy who is the primary concern. Spending way too much money on the lawyer and my soon to be ex is making my life a living hell....long story short! Just looking to talk to other people who are in the same situation.

Single Parents in the NYC area

I am a single parent living in Brooklyn NY. I care for my son from Wed nights through Sat afternoon. My ex lives in our NJ house with our son the rest of the time. I am curious about finding other single parent communities / gatherings where single parents get together with their kids and talk, share experiences and activities etc.

Can I just drop my current lawyer? And by letting her use the house do I still pay some of the mortgage? I watch our son from Wed night to Sat afternoon. Am I still obligated to pay child support? I guess these are things we can agree on. I believe I found this site during my search online. There is also Park Slope parents and Divorce Support.

PLEASE get out of the fighting in court mindset and come up with a win/win. You do NOT have to give her your half of the house. You can let her use it until the child is a certain age and then you can sell it and split the proceeds. What you want to tell her is that you now understand that getting lawyers set this up to be a conflict when it should have been a cooperative effort for the two of you to find the best solutions. Find a good mediator now and get out of the court rat race where the only winners are the lawyers. If you want some support, send her to my website to watch the movies or listen to the audio. The law is not the same in CA but the spirit is right. Show how did you end up here? Who invited you in?

We do both have lawyers. I've spent close to $20,000 now and we are still not separated! I'm thinking about giving her my half of the house so our son will grow up on a dead end street, with a nice back yard and with good schools. Also, close to her mom and sister who has 2 children. She's very upset and suffers from depression so it's been very hard to come to an agreement on anything. I think sitting down with a mediator would take out some of the emotion.

I don't know the law in New York but I do know that you and your wife have a LONG co-parenting relationship ahead of you and to start WWIII at this point in the game isn't good. Do both of you have your own lawyers? If so that is probably half the problem. Attorneys sometimes stir people up to keep them hot so they will keep fighting. That is how they get paid the most.

From your window and the view out your window it looks like you are in New York. Is that true?

What Is a Caucus?

One of the guiding values in mediation and collaborative law is transparency. It comes with the territory when one is trying to establish trust with two different parties. Sometimes an issue may arise that one party may wish not to discuss in front of the other. If they both agree, separate meetings may take place. These meetings are called caucuses.Caucuses can be…See More

How Important Is the Budget in Divorce Planning?

I think everyone’s least favorite word is BUDGET. Why don’t we want to hear that word? Think about it: We’re asking ourselves to do something we don’t want to do — or worse yet, someone else is asking us to do it. While we might not like them, having a budget does help. In divorce planning — whether you are going to litigation,…See More

21st Century Parenting Plans

I remember when the default custody arrangement had one parent as the custodial parent, and the other parent was known as the “Disneyland parent.” They had their children every other weekend, and maybe once during the week for dinner. Today it is more common to see joint parenting time consist of one week on, and one week off or “two-two-five-five” time,…See More

Including a Financial Professional in Your Mediation

Very often, couples who are divorcing amicably, or who have straightforward financial situations, will forgo meeting with a financial professional while they go through mediation. Though this may seem logical on its face, “going it alone” may result in unnecessary hardship and inaccurate calculations.  It is easy to simply look at a tax table today and say “I am going…See More

What About the House?

Going through divorce means dealing with hundreds of details, some more important than others. One detail that merits extra contemplation is how to deal with the marital home.Does one spouse want to keep it because the children still live there?
