ONE MOTHER’S COURAGEOUS JOURNEY TO ESCAPE A CONTROLLING HUSBAND
“I wanted to set an example for my daughter of a strong woman. Alex helped me to show her I could move on with dignity and respect.”
To say that family is important to Megan* is an understatement. Megan adores her daughter and values family and tradition above all else. So, when she realized her marriage was over, she was devastated. What was more devastating, was that divorce is stigmatized and frowned upon in her culture, so she felt ashamed and scared. She was worried about what her family would think and whether she would bear this stigma forever.
Megan’s case was challenging, and her husband created a lot of unnecessary conflict. But we fought hard for her, and when all was said and done, Megan was the victorious hero of her story. Today, Megan enjoys a freedom that she hadn’t felt in years, and she gets to spend her time enjoying her family and traditions.
But the best thing of all, is that Megan set an example for her daughter that the strong woman inside of her could overcome anything. Her daughter celebrated by earning a master’s degree despite some of the financial setbacks of the divorce and making her mother proud of the woman she has become. We love that we got to help Megan and her daughter live up to their potential and make a fresh start.
Here is what Megan had to say about working with us:
“Alex represented me in my divorce and I wouldn’t be where I am now without her!
The first time I met Alex she gave me a good impression by giving me a roadmap of the divorce process. As someone who is very detail oriented knowing what to expect is very important. She was personable, listened to me and I liked the idea of having a female attorney. Alex and her staff are very approachable and always returned my calls unlike other attorneys I have worked with.
One of my biggest motivators during the divorce process was to be a good example for my daughter. Even though I had financial fears and felt like my world was falling apart; I was her biggest role model and I had to show her that I could move on with my life without regret and that I didn’t need a man by my side to have dignity and to be respected. My daughter, at 25 years old recently finished her Master’s degree in neuroscience and yesterday she paid off all her student loan debt. Needless to say I am proud and she is doing great as well.
I am still financially recovering but that will be corrected in a couple years. I am happy to say that life is normal again now, and I am ok with being myself. I am happy answering to myself alone and my friends and family tell me that I look happy. I hope that someday I can return the favor that so many gave me by helping others that are also going through a divorce.”
