What Did I Learn from my Divorce?

Recently, our attorney, Erin Birt, met with group of individuals that experienced divorce, have been effected by divorce, or work with divorcing couples, and discussed their lessons learned after experiencing a divorce. Their stories and lessons are valuable to anyone considering a divorce or separation
