“Accessible, Empathetic Book”
Carol Delzer has written a very accessible, empathetic book on a process that usually feels maze-like and downright inhumane. As she demonstrated with her first two books, Collaborative Co-parenting and Positive Discipline for Single Parents, it’s as though you’re chatting with a trusted (but firm) friend who wants to open doors and minds. Divorce Done Easier could easily be subtitled, “Let’s be Grownups, Just This Once.” It’s a comprehensive, thoughtful work and I strongly recommend it.
~ Ed Goldman, Daily columnist, Sacramento Business Journal
“If Only This Book Had Been Available During My Divorce…”
Combining her years of experience as a therapist and attorney, Carol Delzer has written the most important book available on how to go through a difficult divorce in the most elegant way possible. If only this book and Carol’s advice had been available during my divorce, it would have been better for the two of us, the kids, and our bank account.

“Hands-on Practical, Mindfulness-based Approach”
I highly recommend Carol Delzer’s new book Divorce Done Easier for all couples contemplating a divorce. In this book, Carol presents a hands-on practical, mindfulness-based approach to managing emotions, reactions and responses during divorce. She doesn’t promise a stress-free path but she does predict a more peaceful and satisfactory outcome and future for anyone who chooses to follow the exercises in her book. As a Collaborative Divorce coach and Child Specialist, I will definitely be asking my clients to put these exercises into action throughout the course of the divorce proceedings.

“Excellent Combination of Legal and Mental Health Supportive Info”
This book is comprehensive, holistic, and a culmination of sage wisdom and practical healing advice. It will motivate recovery as it is an excellent combination of legal and mental health supportive information. These real life illustrations will protect the kids and set the stage for movement and growth. I have found Carol’s Collaborative Co-parenting to be so helpful with clients, they tend to “skip ahead”and read it all when their homework was just week 1 and 2. I look forward to adding this work to my present practice.
~ Timothy B. Rood, MA, Licensed Marriage Family Therapist, Divorce Coach and Child Specialist

“A Must Read for Those Committed to Divorce”
From my perspective as a practicing family law attorney of over twenty years, this book is a must read-not only for those who may be considering divorce, but for those who have already committed to divorce.

Readers will understand the transformational opportunities open to them with the insights from an experienced family law attorney and therapist, and will have the tools, communication techniques, and legal insights to help them through a difficult process; as well as alternatives to move through the divorce process in a respectful, cost-efficient, and less emotionally harmful manner.
