"My primary advice would be to make sure the moment you know that it’s about to happen, you make every effort to protect your property and finances (money). Don’t get cleaned out before you have to mount a defense."


Holli T. Dean, Esquire
Law Office of David M. Goldman PLLC

"Most men I encounter in divorce cases are very surprised or caught off guard when their spouse files for divorce or asks for a divorce. A lot of men are understandably upset and have a tendency to agree to things their spouse wants without fully exploring their rights with an attorney. Even if the divorce is amicable, have an attorney review any documents before you sign anything. Once a decree is signed by the Judge, it is extremely hard to go back and change something after the fact. This is especially true if there are children involved. Also important is that men frequently do not keep important documents in their possession. Before filing for divorce or as soon as possible after, gather copies of legal documents, bills, birth certificates, accounts, etc. so you will not have to track those down later."

"Stand your ground. Most men have a belief the system is designed to favor the women. This is not true.  The system is designed to favor consistency, stability and fairness.  If you develop a plan with these 3 goals you will end up with a positive result."

 "Stay off social media about your marital life & any relationships you're forming, separate all banking accounts & credit cards, keep your mouth shut & take care of your children & don't abandon the house. "


Blake P. Lipman
Law Office Of Blake Lipman

"I would advise them to keep their cool, not act impulsively or out of anger or emotion. If they have children, make their children a priority and not use them as a weapon in the divorce. This is better for them strategically in the litigation and to have a happier post-divorce life."


Elizabeth Amaran
Amaran Law Group

"Be kind. And always remember the reason why you married her in her first place. Try to end the relationship the same way you started it, especially if there are children in the middle. "


Dorothy F. Easley, M.S., J.D., BCS Appeals
Easley Appellate Practice

"As an appellate specialist who works regularly in the trial court with family law attorneys, I have two immediate recommendation in dissolution matters. The first is to protect your assets and make your marital settlement agreements as specific as you possibly can regarding all marital and non-marital assets to ensure that you can move on and forward with your life with the least disruption in your financial and family security. That may seem obvious, but an appellate specialist can see at the end of a dissolution matter how hard hit fathers can be if they do not ensure that this advice is carefully followed and I have observed woefully inadequate marital settlement agreements that resulted in years of additional litigation that could have been avoided. Appellate specialists can help trial counsel with those issues. The second piece of advice I would offer anyone is to make sure that "supportive relationship" is well defined in any marital settlement agreement so that future support can be readily modified without expensive litigation and risk of someone else's interpretation."

Donald C. Wheaton, Jr.
“The Lawyer Who Makes House Calls”

"If you have children, don’t move out; find a way to co-exist in the marital residence, so there can be less of a chance of accusations of abandonment or that the established custodial environment has changed. And for goodness’ sake, be prepared to hit the “record” button on your phone so that if there is ever a situation where police are called to respond to alleged domestic violence, you have a recording of some sort to verify your version of events."

"If you have children, don’t move out; find a way to co-exist in the marital residence, so there can be less of a chance of accusations of abandonment or that the established custodial environment has changed. And for goodness’ sake, be prepared to hit the “record” button on your phone so that if there is ever a situation where police are called to respond to alleged domestic violence, you have a recording of some sort to verify your version of events."

Bo Schimers
The Law Offices of Bo Schimers & Associates
"Don’t put yourself in a situation where a phony domestic violence charge can be made against you. Keep some liquid assets on hand - grease works wonders in a lot of situations. Up your game in taking care of the children and keep a diary. Don’t work overtime. Don’t contribute to your 401(k)."


The Bottom Line From The Expert Divorce Attorneys

I personally learned a lot and took away some key points that'll support any guy's case.

1.    Protect your property & finances.
2.    No matter how "simple" you assume your case to be, let an attorney review your documents.
3.    Start gathering the necessary documentations ASAP.
4.    The system DOESN'T favor women.
5.    Stay off social media.
6.    Don't leave the house.
7.    Don't act impulsively and be kind.
8.    Make sure that a "supportive relationship" is defined in your divorce decree.
9.    Record everything.
10.    Up your game in taking care of your children.

Hope you've also found this advice helpful and you feel more prepared for your case.

I’m heartily thankful to every divorce lawyer who contributed and shared their vast experience. I'm very appreciative of their insight and recommend reaching out to them directly if you have any specific questions or divorce needs.

Additionally, you can get most of these details and more in my book, MENy Calculations: Win Divorce & Custody Before You Even Step Into Court (Vol 1). My book delivers practical divorce help for men. All men - not just fathers seeking child custody. This book was purposely written to support an under-advised population of guys on their gravely road ahead - told the way I’d tell a buddy in need. So, let’s grab a drink, one on one, talk preparation, strategy and get you some financial help in the process. We’ve got a lot to talk about.

Men who marry chubby women are happier and live longer

In a recent study conducted by the National Autonomous University of Mexico, a research was carried out to investigate success and happiness in certain marriages. Different things were taken into account such as a partner's age, where they lived and such, but one thing was particularly remarkable for the researchers. An interesting connection was found in a large number of men who stated that they were in a happy marriage.

Surveys have shown that men who are in relationship with chubby women are 10 times happier, and researchers know why.

When the psychological profiles of women who are chubby were made, certain characteristics were found that perfectly fit male, which further leads to a successful and happy marriage:

- Chubby women have proved to be better wives, because they have a stronger ability to anticipate what their husbands need, making them happy and satisfied.

- They value their men much more.

- They showed themselves as more faithful and more responsible wives.

- They are less aggressive than thinner women.

- They are more independent and more comfortable with children.

It is these characteristics that show that chubby women have what they need to be perfect wives. Of course, this does not mean that every chubby women will be good, and every skinny woman will be a bad partner, but if we believe in research, you will have more happiness with chubby women.


Here's what women want you to get them for the New Year

The time for gifts and New Year's celebrations is approaching, which means that we will have to afford something nice to our better half. Every year we go through the same troubled period and we are always wondering, "What do I buy her now?"

We are always trying to stay creative and original and to give our girls something they do not expect, but it often happens that we are screwing up and buying something
which we really should not have bought. That's why we decided to ask girls what they wanted and what they would like to get from their guys as a New Year gift.

Here's what they said:

1. Travel
The most votes went on a travel. Girls in most cases said they would love to go with their boyfriend somewhere and spend New Year holidays on some famous tourist destination.

2. Pet
Nothing is more beautiful than when you donate a sweet and memorable pet to someone. If your girlfriend has no conditions for a cat or dog, you can always give her a parrot or hamster. 

3. Romantic dinner
Women expressed their desire and said they would like to go with their favorite men to a fine and romantic dinner at a luxury restaurant because they think it's a perfect New Year's Eve.

4. A creative gift you made yourself
Many of the girls surveyed said they liked it when a man make effort about presents and that it was a true sign of love and attention. That's why you do not need to focus on something expensive and glamorous, you can only show her your effort and time. If you do, you can be sure she appreciates it.  

5. Perfume
The girls said that the new perfume is always welcome and perfume is always a good choice, so if you do not have any other ideas, you will not make a mistake with the perfume. 


Managing Mental Health in College

Living with mental health problems is never easy, add the stress of deadlines, grades and projects and many students can feel over faced and daunted by college demands. There may not have been a lot of talk about mental health a few years ago. Yet, awareness of depression, anxiety, stress and other commonly diagnosed mental health problems is increasing. And many colleges and universities are now actively trying to support students who may be experiencing these issues.

How to Manage Your Mental Health

Managing your mental health isn’t all too different from managing your physical health. It is important to understand that both mental and health fluctuate, and any one can suffer from mental health issues – just as any one can pick up on a common cold. When signs of mental illness start to manifest, many students believe that powering through their deadlines is the only option they have. Yet, it is important to put your mental health first and give yourself ample time to ensure you are practicing self-care and not exacerbating your condition.

While expressions such as “what have you got to be depressed about?” aren’t heard as much as they used to, many students still feel as though they are not entitled to be burdened by mental health issues. But in reality, the lifestyle changes which students make when they start college are often mentally taxing. Being far away from friends, family and familiar surroundings can all take their toll.

Recognising that you are suffering from a mental health problem is the first step, the second is to reach out for help and support; which many colleges and universities are now offering to students. This help may come in the form of Mental Health teams which are able to make reasonable adjustments to your study life. This can include extending deadlines or offering additional study support. There are also external companies who can help you with your essay writing to help you stay on top of your deadlines.

There are several key ways to boost your wellbeing in addition to receiving academic support.

This includes ensuring that you are looking after your physical health, eating healthy and getting enough exercise. Exercise is proven to boost your serotonin, whilst the right diet will ensure you have enough energy to tackle the daily demands of college life.

Being active is important, and so is being social, there are plenty of ways college campuses try to encourage healthy social lives of students. Meeting like minded people is an important part of the college experience, so try to put a support network around you who you are comfortable talking to about your mental health issues. You’ll be surprised at how many other students feel the same way!

And remember, not all stress is bad for you. It’s okay to feel stressed out, feeling stress or anxiety about your academic life is natural. After you’ve invested so much time and money trying to get the good grades and make the most out of your college experience.
