Hello, my name is Carl. Last year, I divorced my wife. We had been married for several years but our love had finally died when I found out she was having an affair with our neighbour. I moved out and contacted an attorney. As well as organising the division of our property we also have to work out the custody arrangements for our 3 children. My wife wanted full custody but I wasn't happy about this. My attorney helped me to put a case together to present to the family court. In the end, the judge said I should have custody of the kids. I was so happy. I decided to start this blog to offer advice and help to others.
