When filing for divorce, make sure you file in the county where your spouse lives. For example, if you are a resident of DeKalb County and your spouse is a resident of Clayton County, you would file your Complaint for Divorce in Clayton County. #divorce#georgiadivorce#familylawattorney

All the way out in the desert past the city lights glowing south of us - out where the real light gathers like clusters of prana pulsing in the dark. Out in the cold and the quiet with stars arcing across the sky and I’m catching my breath every time. Out where the only sound is the soft sound of music from the speaker and horses moving in the dark across the way. All night long under stars and surrounded by a forest of Saguaro. Coyotes found something deep in the desert and they howled out of sync with each other. This is what wild feels like.
I came out of the desert different, my heart unlocked in new ways, my energy moving through me in an untethered flow. I can’t explain it, other than this knowing that I am more reconciled now than I was before. I’ve sorted out something in me so old and with words I didn’t know I had been waiting to unleash from my throat. It had to happen this way, it had to be some sort of magic that could only happen in that exact moment.
I found a peace in being alone, in focusing all of my energy on my own awakening. I found a piece of myself I was missing and it landed smooth and soft back into my soul again. Like coming home. Like exhaling. Like taking my heart in my hands and gently putting it back in my chest.
For the first time in decades my love starved self is completely content with being in the presence of my own self, breathing my own air. Whatever it was that unlocked in me out in the desert temple priestessed me into the thing I’ve been trying to do for months. I don’t need someone else’s exhale to fuel me, to heal me, to purge the hurt from my bones. I can love myself there, all the way to wholeness.
It was healing to matter, to be remembered.
Why is it that we assign morality to emotions? Why is happiness ‘good’ and sadness ‘bad?’ Sure, sadness is unpleasant but sadness isn’t wrong. We are designed to be emotional beings and as such, our emotions serve a purpose. Instead of trying, often in vain, to make yourself feel better, or telling someone “cheer up!,” how about we allow ourselves and each other to feel it, honor it, sit with it? How about we ask it what it’s trying to tell us? Growth happens in that space. Growth is uncomfortable, but I can tell you , it is so worth it. Don’t rush yourself through pain. Don’t mask it, don’t let anyone tell you when it is time to “get over it.” You will be so grateful for the lessons your ‘bad’ feelings have to teach you.
#JillScott ’s Estranged Husband Countersues for $500,000, Wants Prenup Tossed Out
Jill Scott’s estranged #husband , #MikeDobson , is countersuing the singer for $500,000.
Mike alleges that three weeks before their wedding, Jill and her lawyer pressured him to sign a prenup they drafted.
He claims he didn’t have a lawyer at the time and signed because he loved Jill, although he felt coerced into doing so.
According to Bossip, Mike is demanding their prenup be declared invalid and wants everything split 50/50.
The estranged husband said the prenup isn’t legal not only because he signed it under duress and without a lawyer, but also because Scott violated the agreement’s confidentiality clause by speaking to the media about the #divorce .
The additional $500,000 he’s suing for is due to the alleged pain and suffering he endured while they were together.
. “To (Scott), marriage is a matter of trivial convenience at best and a dispensable annoyance at worst, evidenced by the lightness, dismissiveness, and dehumanization,” Dobson’s countersuit reads. “(Scott) never attempted to salvage the marriage, which she strenuously endeavored to destroy.”
Maybe now would be a good time for #MaryJBlige and Jill Scott to get in the studio for a collaboration.
This podcast is worth a listen. I loved it. A great topic that plagues a lot of couples. I am working on a similar post. Do you have to accept anything when you are married? When is enough enough? . . .

So, the past few days, it seems/feels as though the #Spirit was moving me towards reading #Ephesians . A few different #trusted#friends in #faith all mentioned at different intervals #scripture from this particular letter Paul wrote.
I pretty much #underlined the entire letter. But when I came to this part, along with a conversation I had with my #discipleship mentor, it #hurts me to know that there was a #stunning#truth about one reason why my #marriage failed-
I didn't #love my #wife because I didn't love #myself . Because of the constant thoughts of #depression and #suicide and #hating myself, I realize just how ill-equipped I was to be a man who could lead a marriage. Try as I might, I realize that bc I #hated so much of myself, and didn't believe in #Jesus as I should have, and tried to put it all on my shoulders as man who could just #will his way through it, I failed perhaps even before I began.
Only God, Jesus, the Spirit, and Becca know how badly I really failed when I think about it.
I lost her love because I didnt know how to love myself. And though it may have been her who pressed for the #divorce , I see that I wasn't a strong enough man to lead her in #Christ
Its a tough thing, facing your own #failures and seeing just how far you still need to learn to walk in God and his ways.
May the day come where she finds it in her heart to forgive me.
There is no shame in admitting our weakness and faults. In fact, because Gods power is made perfect in my weaknesses, I will boast all the more loudly of His #grace and #mercy#divorcesucks
January is Child Centred Divorce month. Here are some tips to keep your separation amicable, reduce conflict and help your children adjust to your new co-parenting arrangements. A respectful divorce is possible.
I try not to look at my first marriage as a failure, more of a learning experience. Arguably the hardest, most ass-kicking, knock you to the floor, learning experience I’ve ever endured, but still, I’ve learned, grown, and, in a way, transformed. There were times I lost all hope for happy, but I’ve managed to drag myself off the floor and claw my way back to hope. I can now say that I believe there are bigger and better things in my future. I’m fixing that ponytail and trying again. So my question to you, what are the most important lessons you’ve learned from your marriage and divorce? Comment below!
Jill Scott’s soon to be ex-husband is coming for her coins. Mike Dobson is claiming that Jilly From Philly routinely humiliated him, and now he wasn’t $500K, and to cancel the prenuptial agreement he signed, for his trouble.
Back in November, it was revealed that Scott had filed for divorce. Shortly after it also came to light that she had gotten a restraining order against Dobson.
According to sources, Dobson is claiming that he was coerced into signing a prenup three weeks before the marriage anddidn’t have a lawyer look at the paperwork, chalking it up to being in love.
Thus, along with allegedly breaking a confidentiality agreement because she spoke to the pres, Dobson is claiming the prenup is invalid. Also, he wants half Scott’s assets including an additional $500K for his pain and suffering.
Scott and Dobson’s marriage lasted a little over a year. Dobson’s claims—including emasculization—are a doozy, peep the docs obtained by the folks over at bossip in the FULL story at www.itsKenBarbie.com #jillscott#jill#livingmylifelikeitsgolden#golden#runmemymoney#divorce#prenup#entertainment#entertainmentnews#entertainmentblog#gossip#gossipblogger#celebrities#celebrityblogger#kenbarbie#itskenbarbie#whydidigetmarried
🎶 Had a voice, had a voice, but I could not sing. You would wind me down, I struggled on the ground 🎶
This jam got me through some tough times when I decided to finally leave my marriage, where I had felt like a caged bird for so long.
It’s never too late or too complicated or too anything really to get out of something that is holding you back from really being yourself, from soaring into the fullest expression of your soul’s potential.
Will it be scary to go? Of course. But damn does it feel good to be free. 🦅
Some women desire marriage and that's great! Some women prefer to remain single and that's great! Some women want to go about courtship and marriage God's way. Some do not beileve that is important. See where I'm going here? We all have free will which includes what info we seek and receive to enhance our lives. When I discuss matters of love/relationships on my blog I am speaking to women who want to be married and honor God in the process. I offer my perspective based on my experiences/lessons learned. My heart is for women who want/need my message. With that said this is probably my most transparent post yet. I am not playing in 2018! It's time to get real, heal, and come for everything God has for us, period!!! LINK IN BIO ❤
Win in court candle work - #3
This is one of my favorite candles to do for this work. Dress a just judge candle, which is always a white candle, with Rose oil. You could also use court oil. On the petition, you write the judges name and the attorney’s name. If this was for a divorce court case you would use a red just judge candle. #judge#court#winning#hoodoo#candlemagic#candlemagick#justjudge#divorce
Every story ends... Some books are too fucking long. They either draw on forever, the characters are unlikable, or the story just never goes anywhere.
Some are too damn short. They leave you longing for more. The characters are amazing and feel totally original, the story is something you haven’t experienced before, and plot feels like it has much more that could be explored.
Whatever the case. Once you’ve reached the final page you have to move on. Put the book down and pick up another one. If not you will spend your life reliving the same story and never having a chance to tell your own.
You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I'll rise. .
Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom? 'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells
Pumping in my living room. .
Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I'll rise. .
Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries. .
Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don't you take it awful hard 'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines
Diggin' in my own back yard. .
You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I'll rise. .
Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs? .
Out of the huts of history's shame
Up from a past that's rooted in pain
I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.

Divorce and addiction ruins everything. It is so sad that my little girl has these deep wishes for Thanksgiving instead of kid wishes. Sin affects EVERYONE. IT’S a RIPPLE effect. Think BEFORE you act. Lilah wishes that “Poppy will get better so that I can talk to him and play with him. Second, I want to see my cousins more often. They are funny and kind and we have fun together. And last but not least is for my pops and Cee Cee to get back together. My Poppy is sad that they got divorced. They were always nice together. Those are all my wishes!” The craziest part is that Lilah and Jax sit across the classroom from one another and they each had a similar wish. 😢🙁🤬
