Are You That Woman?

So, are you one of those?

Are you one of those women who define themselves by their divorce? divorce decree

There was a time when I was. My “story” was that I was a divorced woman going through a really rough time. And that clearly, I could not be expected to be all that I could be because I absolutely had no control over what would come next.

Does this sound familiar? I lived for about 6 months with this “story”. Defining myself by this…

My Mother Told Me There Would Be Days Like This!

How true this is!

Yes. No matter what stage of life you are in, we know that there are sometimes bad days. When going through a separation and divorce, you may find that the frequency of these “bad” days seem to increase.

Your tolerance and patience for the unexpected, unanticipated and overwhelm is dramatically reduced and your emotions are already stretched in managing the enormous transition you are going through.

So you had a bad day….whatcha gonna do… Continue

Weeding Your Friendship Garden

So, how will you know if it is time to weed your friendship garden?

Great question. The reason that this is a great question is because it is critical to surround yourself with a group of women and friends who can support you as you move through this transition towards designing your new life.

You will need the motivation, support and encouragement of women who not only wish for your joy and happiness, but who share your desire for creating an exceptional… Continue

Father's Day for Divorced Women!

So, this weekend is Father’s Day!

If you are separated or divorced, this is a day that can be filled with anxiety, frustration, anger and all kinds of emotions.

What I want to stress to you today is that no matter what kind of man/”ex” your children’s father is…he is still their father and they need him desperately!

• Regardless of what your children say

• Regardless of what he does

• Whether or not he pays, honors his obligations or is a kind/decent… Continue

Thanks for all your thoughts Laura. I too am a believer in allowing the universe to work its magic and not try to be the general manager of the world. I help both men and women see the perfection and gifts in their divorce so they can begin you use it to lve an even better more extraordinary life going forward. Sounds like we do some of the same work. Love to share ideas some time

It is always good to have more partners in the peaceful divorce movement. The example you set by getting on well with your ex is fantastic. I only hope more people will follow your example. So where do you live? I am in Southern California.

21st Century Parenting Plans

I remember when the default custody arrangement had one parent as the custodial parent, and the other parent was known as the “Disneyland parent.” They had their children every other weekend, and maybe once during the week for dinner. Today it is more common to see joint parenting time consist of one week on, and one week off or “two-two-five-five” time,…See More

Including a Financial Professional in Your Mediation

Very often, couples who are divorcing amicably, or who have straightforward financial situations, will forgo meeting with a financial professional while they go through mediation. Though this may seem logical on its face, “going it alone” may result in unnecessary hardship and inaccurate calculations.  It is easy to simply look at a tax table today and say “I am going…See More

An Email From the IRS? Don't Believe It

Scam artists have developed a new tactic in cheating taxpayers out of their hard-earned money.Transcript fraud is when taxpayers are lured into opening an attachment that is supposed to be their tax transcript. In fact, the attachment contains malware that will intercept all of your outgoing data, with the intent of capturing account numbers.

2018 Taxes & Divorce: There Is Still Time

If you are getting divorced or just got divorced the last thing on your mind is taxes. It is important to remember that if you got divorced anytime in 2018 (even Dec. 31, 2018), you will be considered divorced for the whole year of 2018. What does that mean for taxes?It could mean a higher tax bill than you thought.  If you are receiving alimony this year it will be taxable to you.  If you are…See More

Withholding: A Down Payment, not a Tax

In my experience, many people do not know the difference between the withholding amount (the taxes deducted on your pay stub) and their tax liability. All they know is that they don’t have the money. They think they’re square with the government, and are surprised if they owe any amount on top of what was withheld. That’s why I thought it would be useful to review the…See More

Divorce & Support Payments – When Can You Use it to Qualify for a Mortgage?

One of the things I have learned over the years is that we cannot be a Jack-of-all-trades and a master-of-none. In today’s ever-changing world, we need to have connections with professionals in other disciplines and specialities. This is especially true with divorce professionals. I think it is important that practitioners have a network of specialists on which to draw. Today I am going to do just…See More
