About the Book

This volume will guide you through the myriad of family court procedures and programs. For example, what is mediation? And how does it work? But it is fair to say that the greatest challenges facing you in a divorce are not legal or procedural. They are emotional. On both the legal and the emotional side, we will look at what works and what doesn’t – for you and your children. On the emotional side, divorce is all about loss. Regardless of which party filed for the divorce, you both lost large parts of yourselves; so much of yourselves that it keeps surprising you. And your feelings about all of this keep changing. Why? Because these losses bring grief. And grief has stages. So, just about time you think you have come to grips with your feelings, they change on you. Some people get stuck in one of these painful stages for years. Nothing good comes from that. It is much better for you – and any children involved -- if you learn exercises to move you through each of these stages as quickly as possible. Also covered are: What to say to your child or children; how to arrive at a co-parenting plan that serves those children well; special cases (including a violent and/or alcoholic ex); how to do better in your next relationship; and how to know when you are ready for a new relationship.

About the Author

Ron Neff (Ph.D University of Iowa) is a semi-retired professor and psychotherapist. In recent years he has published several self-help books: Goodbye, My Love: How To Mend A Broken Heart (2016), Loving Well: Keys to Lasting and Rewarding Relationships (2016), Your Inner Mammal: How To Meet Your Real Emotional Needs And Become Stronger - For Self And Others (2017), and now Surviving Divorce & Winning in Family Court. He has often been told he should write novels, probably love stories, since he has studied and worked with issues of the heart most of his life. Hence, The Color of the Moon (2017), Daisies in Hell (2019), One Heart Over the Line (2019), and Heroes, Hellions and Hot Rods (2019). But, more recently, his novels have moved on to inspirational tales of larger than life souls; heroes – both male and female – with more than just love on their minds. That brings us to Enough With Those Humans: Was It Time for a Higher Intelligence? (2020), The Trouble With Eve: Forbidden Fruit in a Big Sky Paradise (2020), Sidewinders & Sassy Skirts: Blame It on Texas (2020), Up to Alaska: The Rush Of 2032 (2021), and Post-Earth: Searching the Stars for New Life (2021).
