...and those issues are making my marriage unbearable for me."

That's what most people who consult with me tell me, in one way or another.

Some people say that they think that their spouse may have "bi-polar disorder," as evidenced by extreme mood swings.

Others tell me confidently that they are convinced that their spouse suffers from narcissistic personality disorder, which they feel might explain their spouse's extreme overspending and self-indulgence. 

A majority of the people who consult with me confide in me that their spouse has turned to excessive drinking or the use of drugs.

 It is not uncommon at all for a client to tell me that her spouse routinely lies to her (or him.)

And...I'm frequently told that a client's spouse is a skaplan "control freak" who tells my client what to do, wear, say, and where my client can and cannot go, and with who.

The fighting between the two spouses begins, and then gets worse. Frequently, much worse.

Often, there's an affair.

Now, the two spouses are sleeping in separate bedrooms and there is limited (and sometimes virtually no) communication between them.

They usually try marriage counseling, but for some reason (at least for the people who ultimately reach out to me,) it didn't help. Frequently, my client tells me that the other spouse just sat there and blamed my client for everything that was wrong with their marriage, while accepting no responsibility.

Most of my clients tell me that ultimately they realized that he or she cannot fix their marriage alone, and that their spouse does not seem to have any interest in trying to work things out.

And so they come to consult with me about a divorce.



Whatever your journey with your spouse has been, my guess is that you are at this website because you have reached a breaking point. Something has to change.

Perhaps you know that a divorce may be coming, and you have some serious concerns.

You might be seeking direction. "What are my options?"

"What should my next step be?"

You may be feeling a need to find out how to best protect your kids and your assets, and you need to be sure that you'll have enough money if you do actually divorce. 

I'm sure that you don't want to fight; you just want to be fair.

But your spouse is angry at you.

And you're not so sure how fair your spouse will be to you.

You likely fear that you may be taken advantage of if you are not very careful. 

You are concerned about what the future holds for you. There is uncertainty, and the uncertainty is making you fearful.

Thoughts of being alone again, of returning to the dating scene, and of being a single parent are adding to your already over-burdened mind.

My guess is that it has become hard for you to sleep.

You are likely tired...



I understand the many stressors that people who are facing the possibility of a divorce often confront.

Every day for the past 32 years I have worked with divorcing people in New Jersey who had concerns like yours. Ultimately, most of them were able to successfully address those issues.

There are two things that have been crucial to helping me assist thousands of New Jersey divorce clients over the years. First, I am highly trained and highly experienced as a divorce specialist.

And second is that through the past 32 years of living with my wife (who was married and divorced once before) and step-children, I have personally experienced much of what divorcing and divorced families go through.  (CLICK HERE TO READ "MY STORY")
