I want to fire my divorce attorney…and here’s the song of the week

Getting a divorce sucks. I cannot think of a more eloquent way to state this fact.

We have resolved all but two issues to finalize this divorce. However, discussions are getting hot, inflammatory words are being used, and I am getting really angry.

I am not sure having an attorney represent me is working well either. I think it is time to shake things up a bit so that the two issues remaining can be resolved quickly.

Replacing a woman with a briefcase for a woman with a chainsaw might be what is needed.

Listen to this song…

What do you think? Would Pink represent me?

Would you want to sit across the mediation table from Pink??

Happy Friday!!

Yes, divorce does suck. And you do have to be your own advocate – attorney or not – to make sure your interests are protected. Drinking some wine never hurts!

I am divorced. It was 2 years final on May 13!!! Let me know if you have questions, want to vent, whatever. I am NOT an attorney but am very realistic and love to help others going through a divorce! There is nothing like someone who has been there. And I LOVE LOVE SO What by Pink! I jam it out on my Ipod all the time!!!!

Attorneys are sometimes so hard to work with. Good luck. Have a fun weekend.

:-) I’ve never really paid attention to the words of that song and I’ve never seen the video. Now, I think it is my theme song and it will play in my head every time I think of HIM.

I think my lawyer sucked as well. He wasn’t really working in my best interest and didn’t follow through or help me like I think he should have.

I’m with Jen: We’re there for you in a heartbeat. If she does the pink hair then I’ll do bright red. Yup, divorce sucks big time!

She would DEFINITELY represent you. And she would make sure it was fast and dirty! Dirty as in you get everything you want and he’s left thinking what the hell just happened!

Good luck. Never been through it, hope I never have to.

I have yet to start any divorce proceedings. I’m waiting until I move out to CA. And we’ve agreed to go with a no fault, because I just want to be detached from my ex as soon as possible! Plus he really has nothing I want..

But regardless, good luck! I hope your two final issues get resolved soon!

And this is the first time I’ve seen the music video for that song. It’s hilarious!

I think a chainsaw would make an excellent point.

My attorney tried to fire ME the week my divorce was settled, saying my husband and his attorney were “difficult.” duh! My advice (I know you want it)! Fantasize about having Pink rep you, and stick it out with your attorney just to get it over with. Hang in there, and for what it’s worth, I’m rooting for you.

Thank you Grace!

I think your advice to hang tough with attorney and pretend Pink is representing me is a great idea. Maybe this will help with the next mediation session. I might be able to stick up for myself more successfully with this approach.
