Divorce is simply kak!

If you’re old enough to get divorced, you’re old enough to deal with the shitty reality...

Hanlie Visser is a practising attorney in Somerset West with a vast experience in divorce law. The information shared in this blog is a combination of stories shared with her over the years as well as her own experiences. She prides herself to be extremely outspoken, embarrassingly honest, dreadfully unconventional and above all, exceptionally compassionate in her work.

This blog is mainly written in the first person to protect the privacy and trust of her clients and to still get the message to the millions of women who struggle with the same problems, questions and trauma.

The content of the blog is aimed to assist women to cope with divorce, to forewarn them of the emotional, physical and mental challenges they will face and is told in the same straight forward manner than Hanlie is known for without soft-soaping sensitive issues.

Her motto is:  If you’re old enough to get divorced, you’re old enough to deal with the shitty reality…

Enjoy the untold truths…. the shit that no one speaks about.

“Hell hath no fury like the attorney of a woman scorned”.

There are things that we don’t want to happen,  but have to accept. Things we don’t want to know, but have to learn. And people we can’t live without but have to let go…

This in short is the tragic story of DIVORCE… There are  no short-cuts. There is no easy way. 

There is very little of the “divorce-shit” that I have not heard, seen or experienced in my years of practising as a divorce attorney – the heartbreak of sexually abused children, the trauma of physical violence, the destruction of substance abuse. You become sceptical about human kindness, decency, trust, integrity….And you wish you can protect the vulnerable and weak against the onslaughts of life.   

If only one can find solace through this blog, it will be worth it…..
