Hey, I'm Joshua T. Osborne

In 2015, I said goodbye to 16-hour days and hauling boxes up and down stairs for a living (I was a mover). I became a full-time entrepreneur, and I made my money by helping business owners make money.

They had a need, and because of Virtual Tool Booths., I could fill it. Through the methods taught by my all-time favorite course and mentor, I created a 6-figure business in roughly 6 months. I could retire today (at 37) and never have to worry about money ever again.

Because of Virtual Tool Booths., I was able to quit my job, work online with flexible hours, and move to the mountains (Colorado Springs if you’re wondering)...all while helping real people improve their businesses, incomes, and lives!

For most folks, a college degree is the biggest bill of their lives. I never went to college. So I don’t have any massive bills or giant debts hanging over my head. My greatest education came from Virtual Tool Booths. (for a tiny fraction of what college costs) and it’s the bill that pays ALL the bills - a hundred times over!

I really wanted to share this secret weapon with others, so they could change their lives the way I changed mine. So if you’re not 100% sure about college, or only researching to make someone else happy, Virtual Tool Booths. might be a better option for you.

Want to know how I built this life with no formal education?

What does a divorce lawyer do?

Divorce lawyers represent their clients in marriage termination proceedings in front of civil, juvenile, or probate courts. They represent individuals in cases that involve alimony, child custody, child support, and division of property that is jointly held. They perform investigations of cases to obtain evidence and follow the best path of legal action. Divorce lawyers write and file motions, contracts, and agreements to represent the best interest of individuals. They also draft prenuptial, alimony, and custodial agreements. Divorce lawyers often provide the necessary advice on the legal issues related to divorce. Some divorce lawyers settle divorce cases through mediation so they do not have to go to court.

What kind of training does a divorce lawyer need?

Divorce lawyers must have at least a bachelor degree and juris doctorate degree from a law school that is accredited. Most law schools require applicants to receive a satisfactory score on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) to gain acceptance. Prospective divorce lawyers typically complete courses in legal writing, civil procedure, jurisprudence, argument and philosophy, and family law. Most law schools require students to complete internships. Many aspiring divorce lawyers complete internships or obtain part-time employment in law firms that specialize in family or divorce law to gain experience and establish valuable contacts. All states require divorce lawyers to pass written bar examinations to become licensed to practice law. Divorce lawyers must complete continuing legal education to maintain their licenses, keep their skills current, and stay up to date with advancements and changes in the field.
