Ultimate Divorce Preparation Toolkit [Digital Bundle]
Ultimate Divorce Preparation Toolkit [Digital Bundle]
Please Note: Do NOT add any other toolkits to your cart when purchasing this toolkit bundle; this includes all three (the Divorce Survival, Child Custody, and Single Mom) toolkits.
So many papers and no way to keep them organized!
How am I going to be confident and prepared to speak with a lawyer for the next meeting or face a custody hearing?
Am I collecting and keeping the right information?
Will I have it all handy for court?
These are the questions, and more, many ask when facing a divorce. So much to think about and so little time!
When I was going to court for a hearing, I knew a simple two-pocket folder would not be enough to hold all the papers, keep me organized, and prepare me for that hearing. I was scared and felt very alone! That’s when I created my divorce, custody, and (single) mom binder.
What I found amazed me… I was confident in court, had what I needed handy when asked, and actually walked away from that hearing feeling like I won (if anyone actually wins in family court) even though I compromised in the end. I had all the documentation ready when lies were told. It wasn’t my word against his because I had it all documented and ready to share. And lawyers and the court officials were very impressed by my binder!
Before creating the divorce survival tool kit, I met with the head lawyer of his own law practice who has been handling family law and divorce cases for over 13 years. I sat down with him for over an hour discussing what women should bring with them to their first appointment and what would be the best way to handle a divorce case – of course, he said having all the needed paperwork and a binder for each hearing is such a tremendous help. All that needed information is included in this tool kit! You are saving yourself time and money by purchasing this tool kit bundle! Less you're paying your lawyer to tell you what to collect and how to get it organized for him or her.
You can't be too organized or too prepared for this divorce survival journey!
No more disorganization and lack of preparation… now you have a Binder (or three) to help you at lawyer’s meetings, during court hearings, and so much more!

I love that it gave me the encouragement and confidence to begin to take hold of this process. I felt like having the printouts was powerful for me and gave me strength to print out and pursue getting all the documents you suggested in the files in one place. I think it also helps me be more organized and show my lawyer that while I am a stay at home homeschool mom I am also smart organized, capable and a good cause to get behind because I have vision for my family and the ability to carry out that vision.
In my case, I needed a 2 inch binder to hold all my petitions, statements and such. I would recommend printing out all financial transactions for the entire preceeding year to help with budget and to help correct any financial mistakes on the part of the opposing spouse.
My only suggestions would be to define some terms in the binder that will be encountered by a person who has no experience with divorce and may be scared of some of the ideas or terms. Like guardian ad litem, dissolution, pleading, petition, petitioner/respondent, etc? And creating pages for homeschool parents. I find myself having to prove that homeschool is a viable and good option for my children and wonder if it would be appropriate to include that in your binder.
I believe this is really helpful to those who are not very organized or is terrified where to start with looking after paper works. The layout and design also gives life and perk-me-up vs the really dark world of divorce. Although tears, memories, broken hearts and broken hearts accompanies writing on those sheets, they still somehow reminds us that we are a woman, deserving beautiful things. Never mind the cold, black and white court documents that until now is sitting on my desk, waiting for me to get the next courage to finish filling them out.
I have to give a huge shout out to Jen for creating this toolkit! It is amazing and so helpful. I am 3 years post-divorce, so you would think I don't need this. However, due to my ex's issues, we have had to go to court again over child support and placement, so having these kits to help create a binder has been a LIFESAVER! All my documents - organized. Visitation and any issues surrounding that - documented and filed. Any payments received - registered and filed. Thank you, thank you, thank you Jen! I appreciate all that you do. I must say, it also looks very professional to have everything neatly organized and filed so that when I go talk to my lawyer or need to present documentation in court, I am seen as a mom who takes this seriously (instead of a mom who has to waste time trying to find documents in a very unorganized bag or folder). If you are considering this bundle, you won't be disappointed.
Hope this shows as many stars that are in the sky! For those of you reading this, I will share only what I can. I have been legally separated for years. My STBEx (hopefully this year) literally threw the separation papers at me while our children were young. Yes, it was a big surprise he had planned he said for 3 years. I am a woman of Faith, Churchgoer and I was more active serving in the Church until I had to stop giving all my "free time" both to the schools and serving so much while working more than a full-time job taking care of the house and now teenagers without help from any family or real friends since I did not make time for myself. I did attend DivoreCare years ago that helped back then but I needed more. I finally found help with JenGrice.com! I didn't get this kinda of help from my Therapist (who is awesome) or my Church (that I do love).
I purchased the bundle and Jen's new book, and they are very inexpensive and very much worth more than the price! I have printed all the documents and I love the color; it's my new "Dawn" color!? (Sea foam blue) and I purchased plastic totes with matching lids and picture frames for the self care printables to match the color of the butterfly!? I have printed out everything and put them in protective sleeves into my binders and tabs. I've been following along on YouTube as well. I have PTSD and my coping skills for my ADHD are not working very well for me these days so I needed these printables more than anybody can imagine to help me organize! I look at the Scriptures, The Self-Care List and the verse cards almost every day! I know all these wonderful printables and words of wisdom blogs are going to help me and my children, and for that I appreciate all that you do for us!
I am working on being an "emotionally strong woman" of faith! I am a "work in progress"???? I now understand the scriptures better and can follow along at Church and at Women's conferences better as well!
