Divorce Matters: A Proven Approach to Family Law
Selling or Buying your Home in a Divorce Around the Holidays
By: Shirley Jenkins, Realtor 
A great time of the year for buying and selling real estate is during the months of November and December. For those who are facing divorce during the holidays, this comes as welcome news. If you need to sell now, rest assured that the buyers looking at houses during the holiday months tend to be true buyers and no just looky-loos. 

It will be important to carefully consider the following in order to capitalize on these last two months of the year:
- Hire a realtor trained and certified in Divorce Real Estate
- When preparing to sell a home hire and experienced stager
- When buying a home be certain to use a qualified inspector
- Connect with a lender that has divorce lending expertise which is crucial to your success through this process

'Tis the season to identify gratitude for the gifts we have, such as spending time with those who will help you get to the next chapter of your life. It might feel like the holiday months present stumbling blocks for your divorce when you are dealing with selling your home. You can alleviate this pressure when you have a team of professionals around you to help handle those difficult details.

Hope for the New Year
By: Kristine Turner, Ph.D.
As one year comes to a close, there's always a new year on the horizon, and with a new year comes new opportunities, new challenges, new hopes, and new dreams.
It is all too common for people to mold themselves into becoming someone they are not in order to "keep the peace"  in a relationship. Interestingly, most people believe in the saying that "what you know is safer than what you don't know".
Changing a behavior pattern can be ominous, however, breaking your old pattern of behavior is essential to changing the relationship between you and your former spouse and essential to your future happiness.
Perhaps, this new year can be a time of discovery and growth. Perhaps, this is the year to explore the things that you would like to do. Perhaps it is time to look deeper into who you are and who you want to become. These options might not have felt natural when you were in a relationship. Now you have the freedom to look at what went wrong in your former relationship and assess what your responsibility was, as well as assess ways to create new thought patterns about relating to people.  Perhaps it is time to try some things you have always wanted to try but have been afraid to do.
 1. Write down some new things you would like to try this coming year. What has prevented you from doing these things in the past?
  2. What do you want to do differently?  What do you want to change?
  3. What do you fear and what excites you about making changes in the coming year?
  4. What would you do differently if the other parent were not in your life right now?
  5. What dreams have you given up that you would like to pursue this year?
