Laura Wasser is a California attorney who is famous for helping high-profile celebrities end their marriages. While celebrity divorce is most known for its tumultuous splits, Wasser is known for telling her clients that it doesn’t have to be that way.
In her recent book, Wasser has advice for anyone going through divorce on how to get through the process as smoothly as possible. For example, she drives home the importance of communication during a divorce, “even if you didn’t have it in your marriage.”
Wasser explains that many couples going through a divorce wrongly assume that they shouldn’t be talking to one another. However, she said working together to settle issues on your own is one of the best ways to save money and reduce conflict during a divorce.
Additionally, Wasser says child custody can be the most contested aspect of many divorce cases because it is a highly emotional issue. However, she says parents should remember to put their children first and not take out frustrations with an ex on the kids.
Wasser’s book “It Doesn’t Have To Be That Way,” which is now available, discusses advice like this as well as her experience representing celebrities such as Ryan Reynolds, Angelina Jolie and Britney Spears in their divorces.
Wasser is right; divorce doesn’t have to be devastating. The truth is that many divorce cases can be settled outside of court with limited conflict. Finding the right attorney to help guide you through the process can help bring your marriage to a close without unnecessary drama.
