It is no surprise to anyone who has been through divorce that divorce is a process that can overwhelm your life. If not approached properly, decisions made during this period can result in serious mistakes that can have long-term consequences for everyone involved. The overwhelming nature of divorce leads to six common, yet entirely avoidable mindset mistakes. Yet, men and women alike going through divorce can be heard to utter the words described in this book that signal that they are about to make one of these not inconsequential mistakes. These mistakes can lead to a number of major legal, financial, and other wrong turns.
