The new book titled, “Stress-Free Divorce Volume 3” features a chapter with the Founder of Manning Law Company, Christian Divorce Attorneys, Jamie C. Manning, where she shares her insights on how you can follow the Lord, even through divorce.
According to Manning, good Christians’ kindness can hurt them through divorce.
Manning revealed, “The Manning Law Company’s preferred client is an intelligent Christian who is fighting for a worthy cause. Often, our best clients have reached the point where trial is the only option. They have become disgruntled or frustrated with previous counsel whether paid, relative or self and are seeking counsel whose mission and values are aligned with their own. They are seeking an advocate. These are usually child custody cases. Child custody cases are similar, regardless of whether the parents need a divorce, have never been married, or are a grandparent seeking custody. They all require the specialized practice of the Manning Law Company. Once we are on the case things move at a much faster rate and clients are able to see an end to the fight.
We also love to work with couples that agree. Some issues of divorce and custody can be resolved using the Manning Law Company’s Couple Strategy Session as a springboard to a full and final resolution of matters in dispute. These clients are able to reduce stress, time, and legal fees by settling all matters in the office and never having to appear at court.”
When asked about what major obstacles good Christians face through divorce, Manning said, “Don’t let your feelings about the other parent affect your parenting. I know it’s easier said than done, but with help and support and good guidance you’ll always be able to put your child first. Parents who find themselves unable to control their feelings about the other parent very often unnecessarily increase their own stress, lengthen the time of court litigation, and harm their children. They raise the cost of divorce and custody in many ways that aren’t just financial. Most parents’ desired goal is to protect their children. The best way to protect your child is to make sure that their happiness is more important than anything that you are feeling.”
In the book chapter, Manning outlined how they help couples, explaining, “Some people when they hear the term Christian Divorce think oh well you guys must do everything very nicely and all your clients want to settle and nobody wants to fight. That is a big misconception. What Christian divorce means is maintaining your integrity throughout the divorce process. It means fighting for the things that are worth fighting for and not fighting over things that aren’t worth it. It is a decision to put the children first and to maintain a relationship with God and a clear conscious throughout the process to pave a way for a future that is more in line with what God would have for you. Christian divorce is a new beginning.”

The chapter concluded with Manning saying, “Divorce is not a road that you want to travel unadvisedly. Just like marriage requires planning, prayer, and counsel, so does divorce. Each person has to answer to God for him or herself whether or not they are divorcing for right or wrong reasons. Regardless if you did the right or the wrong thing in getting married or divorced, know that God still loves you. Even if your family, friends, and church turn on you, God still loves you. Seek wise counsel from non-judgmental Christians and legal counsel from a Christian Divorce Attorney.”
