Special Offer for Support Groups


Last week, we spent a lot of time talking about support groups and other ways you can find support as you move through your divorce and post-divorce journey. In keeping with that theme, I would like you to connect me with your support group leader. From now through July 31, I will ship five copies of “Your Post-Divorce Compass” to your support group leader for $99.00 – I’ll even cover shipping. All I ask of you is that you connect me with that leader directly, either via Facebook or via email to info@postdivorcecompass.com.

Thank you!

Review: “elf”

Proud of this 5-star review from “elf” on Amazon:

Divorce is heck. That’s a nice way of putting it. It affects people emotionally, psychologically, intellectually, socially, financially and even physically. There are resources out there to help with many of the support areas, but those getting divorces generally turn to their attorneys for help in practical matters.
The problem is that, never before having been in this situation, folks getting a divorce don’t know the right questions to ask. Since they don’t know the questions, they don’t get the answers. Michael Dunham, an empathetic young attorney has put together what is essentially a check list for those who have just completed a divorce. It’s a schedule/planner to help with the practical changes that occur after a divorce, and includes sample letters and forms.
I wish this book had been around when I was going thru my divorce 20+ years ago. I consider this book to be a public service – a life saver that is desperately needed to help folks drowning during and especially after the divorce process.
It would be wonderful if no one ever went through a divorce, but if that’s something that you, or someone you know is going through, get this book!

Thanks so much! If you’re convinced, please buy the book!

Review: “Bobby”

We wanted to share a review from “Bobby”, a divorce attorney who thinks the book can be a valuable resource for his own clients:

“There is nothing in this book we all [divorce lawyers] don’t know, but this is the first time I’ve seen it presented in this ‘workbook’ fashion. As someone who prides himself on being ‘full-service’, I’m glad I have this available so I can send it to my clients after their divorces are final. They are really appreciative (and I’m hoping it will lead to more business for me later if they ever need me).”

Helping Your Homeless Former Spouse

[Ed: Originally published on Facebook.]

I had a former client approach me with a somewhat unusual situation: her ex-husband was kicked out of his apartment and had nowhere to go. She knows it’s not her problem, but at the same time she felt some pity for him, and besides she certainly doesn’t want their children’s father to be homeless. So she let him stay with her for a few weeks, until his next apartment is ready, which won’t be until the first of next month.

I advised her to be really, really careful about being clear with him that he is a temporary guest and she expects him to clear out on the date they agreed. I also advised her to consider involving a counselor in a frank and open discussion with the children, so they could ask questions and work out any confusion they might be feeling over the fact that all of a sudden, mom and dad are under the same roof again.

“Your Post-Divorce Compass” is about how to set up your post-divorce life, separate from your former spouse. Advice like this is unusual and certainly wouldn’t be found in the book, but the book does have a lot of useful information about how to keep moving forward in your newfound independence.

Review: “Howard”

[Ed: Originally published on Facebook.]

We wanted to share a review from “Howard”, a CPA/JD/RIA who calls the book a “must read for the newly divorced or those contemplating divorce”:

“Throughout my career as a CPA providing litigation support for domestic relations issues I never had a tool like this to provide to clients. It is everything you need to know (including things you never realized you needed to know) in one reference book. Divorce is painful; however, it does not mean that the task of getting your life in order has to be. This book will help! I encourage anyone recently divorced or contemplating divorce to read this book and keep it on hand as an ongoing reference tool.”

Review: “Tom”

[Ed: Originally published on Facebook.]

We wanted to share a review from “Tom”, a financial expert who thinks the book can be helpful for someone who may not have much financial experience:

“Mike Dunham has taken his extensive experience in family law and delivered a practical roadmap for the newly divorced. The book is organized into thirty critical tasks which are presented in prioritized order, and it identifies the specific task to be tackled each day for a month. Mike skillfully presents each step in concise, straightforward, and non-technical language so that readers without legal training can accomplish each task. This book enables the reader to successfully navigate a complex web of issues including banking, insurance, support payments, and many others.”

Review: “Amy”

[Ed: Originally published on Facebook as well as Amazon as a 5-star review.]

We wanted to share a review from “Amy”, a counselor who finds the book to be a handy resource for her clients:

“Your Post-Divorce Compass is a must-have and a must-read for everyone who is going through or who has recently gone through a divorce. Mike has done an excellent job breaking down a very overwhelming time of life into understandable and manageable parts! As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in private practice, I have worked with many men and women as they were entering into or moving through the transition of divorce. I wish this book had been available as a resource to give to those clients as I know that it would have made a tremendous difference in helping them to feel more informed and confident in the post-divorce process. Thank you, Mike, for sharing your expertise through the writing of this book. It is great to have this on hand to share with my clients now!”

Review: “Renae”

[Ed: Originally published on Facebook as well as Amazon as a 5-star review.]

We wanted to share a review from “Renae”, who found the book helpful:

“This was an amazingly useful publication that came at the right time. I appreciated Mr. Dunham’s no frills approach and easy breakdown of the material. As a recent divorcee, I found it extremely helpful to have this blue print for successfully navigating one of the most stressful times in my life. I will be recommending this to other friends and family who find themselves in similar situations.”
