Here’s How To Build Your New Life
From updating IDs to notifying creditors, sort out the practical parts of your life after divorce.
Your Guide to Updating Everything Practical After Divorce
This workbook will tell you exactly what to do – and when to celebrate!
You’re separated or divorced. You need to update bank accounts, find new insurance, finalize paperwork.
Then there’s the stuff you might not even know about: removing your spouse’s name from assets and liabilities. Updating tax authorities. Getting your QDROs done (what even is a QDRO?!).
It can feel completely overwhelming!
We didn’t learn this stuff in school. So here’s your guide.
Michael Dunham is a family lawyer in Marietta, Georgia, just outside of Atlanta. He’s helped hundreds of men and women through divorces. But he always felt a twinge when all the papers were signed and filed, and his clients would look at him and say “…Now what?”
They weren’t asking for help emotionally processing their divorce – there’s tons of information about that. They wanted to know how to get the practical parts of their life back on track. And beyond his words of advice, there was little information available.
So Michael wrote the book: Your Post-Divorce Compass: Practical, Real-World Advice for the Newly Single.
One Task Per Day: You Can Be DONE In A Month

People just like you are using this book to recover from divorce and launch their new lives – more capable, prepared, and confident than ever.
Here’s one of our favorite reviews:
“I’m not going to lie – my first thought was, “Do I really have to buy this stupid book?” But once I received it, I saw that it tells you exactly what to do. There are so many things you don’t think about when you’re first going through a divorce – things like benefits and beneficiaries. And little by little you realize how much it is. You can’t even wrap your head around it. All of that stuff is here. I love the day by day tutorials and checklists. It’s nice and big, easy to read, and good quality. This is going to help me manage my new independence. It’s worth it.”
