simulate me

The sun is shinning, and as we put away our heavy winter jackets, many people are taking things out of storage that they use during the warmer months; cleaning the grill, opening and prepping the pool and getting set to ride some variation of a two wheel mode of transportation; which might be a bicycle, a motorcycle or a moped.  A “bike,” and by whatever means it’s propelled, may not be your speed – so to speak – but any driver on the road must be certain not to completely disregard them either.  They’re out there; ignoring them also means ignoring state and municipal traffic laws, which is not only illegal, but it recklessly endangers the lives of the people you’d just as soon pretend aren’t there, who are just minding their business.

Jayne L. Brayer Attorney P.C

So many clients, friends and family have shared their experiences on that first talk.  While no two stories are the same, there is no easy way to tell your children that you and your spouse have decided to split, there is one scenario I have seen that is certain to hurt your children.

                               “Its Not My Fault”


In this situation, where one parent is unfaithful to the other, it is only natural to feel hurt, betrayed and angry.   The faithful spouse does not want the children to blame him or her for the sins of the cheating spouse.  Assume it is the father who was unfaithful.  It usually plays out like this:

Mother: Kids, your Father and I have something to tell you.

Kids:  What?

Mother:  We are getting a divorce.

Kids:  (sobbing uncontrollably) BUT…
