WHEN TALKING TO DANIELLA BLOOM YOU ARE AFFIRMED THAT GRASS DOESN’T GROW UNDER HER FEET. BUT YEARS AGO, FROM THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN, PEOPLE THOUGHT SHE HAD IT ALL – THE PERFECT HUSBAND, THE PERFECT LIFE. “TO MANY PEOPLE, I’M SURE, IT LOOKED LIKE WE HAD THE PERFECT LIFE. I WAS MARRIED TO A HANDSOME JEWISH DOCTOR, AND WE HAD A BEAUTIFUL HOME IN THE SUBURBS AND HAD THREE CHILDREN. EVERYTHING SEEMED GREAT ON THE OUTSIDE, BUT IT BECAME A UNHEALTHY MARRIAGE ON THE INSIDE.”
“Having children while navigating a divorce presents a very real struggle for anyone.”
Bloom adds that there is a lot of psychology that needs to be front and center during the divorce process and attorneys are not trained for this. “Fortunately, today there are a lot of times that there is a therapist in the collaboration.
They can pump the brakes and say,“whoa hold on. This (conversation) isn’t really about the kids.”It took close to three years to final- ize her divorce and a year of that she represented herself because “I just saw firsthand that I didn’t want to lose another $50,000 here and another $50,000 there.” But when her husband’s attorney went MIA, she was forced to once again, hire an attorney to finish the job. “I feel like I’m the lucky one because I spent a fraction of what many people spend today.”
