Divorce and Prenuptial Agreements in the UK

by:
 Jay Williams (November 15, 2011)  For the past several months – years even – some of the UK’s most prominent legal figures have advocated the prenuptial agreement.

How to Divide Communal Belongings in the Event of a Divorce

 Jay Williams (November 03, 2011)  There can be no doubt that an amicable, quick and uncontested divorce is desirable.

Just what is Self-Compassion and how can it help you Recover from a Divorce?

by:
 Jay Williams (September 23, 2011)  I hadn’t heard of the term self-compassion before yesterday. I was aware of, and have avidly used terms such as self-awareness, self-esteem and self-recognition, but self-compassion – as a phrase, at least – had eluded me.
