Hi and welcome to DadsDivorce, the leader in divorce help for men, fathers rights and mens rights. We provide divorced dads with concrete, practical divorce resources to achieve the best results in the courtroom.
This post is an index for special lessons learned posts written by dads who have fought the fight, and want to share what worked, what didn't, and helpful advice for those still in the trenches.
If you want to write a lessons learned post and have it included, just post in before and after and send a PM to one of the Mods, and they will include it in this index. If you have already posted one, or you recall a certain post that fits this purpose, send a PM to a Mod with the link so we can include it.
All - I have unlocked this topic, so that others who want to add a post that references another topic they found valuable, they can do so. Please limit the posts to just a link, and a very brief summary of what the topic is about.
Again, these should be focused Lessons Learned, real experience with real results.
We will edit these to keep them organized, so be forewarned.
I learned that in a matter of 15 to 30 minutes deliberating in the court without a lawyer to help me out in the divorce process made me so confident about myself. I have been divorced for almost 8 months now and celebrating that my 25+ years of marriage was over.
At first, I cried and felt sad in 60 seconds. After that breathtaking ordeal I felt a sense of relief. It was a feeling that felt so good knowing I am FREE.
Lesson 1. Your attorney should be used to present your case not build it for you. Building a successul custody case usually starts long before filing for divorce by being an active and involved parent.
