How do you want your children to feel about you?

Here is a great article written by member Laura Campbell, Divorce Coach. I know you will get as much out of it as I did!

***

I recently had the opportunity to drive home from a weekend away with my two children and spend five hours alone in the car with them. At ages 11 and 14, sometimes our time in the car where no one can walk away, ignore or otherwise avoid conversations, is a wonderful opportunity to really gain valuable insight as to how they are feeling.



I have… Continue

Tough Times for Single Parents

With the recent increases in gas and food prices and the new school year around the corner, single parents need all the help they can get stretching a dollar. For most of us, the next few weeks will be spent buying school clothes and supplies and having to spend money on school lunches, after school activities and all of the other expenses the new school year brings.



So if our earnings and/or child support has not increased, yet all of our expenses have, how are we supposed to get… Continue

Successful Co-Parenting After a Nasty Split: Is it Possible?

If you have children and are going through a difficult divorce, you may wonder how you are going to be able to co-parent your children with your ex. If you could not get along well enough to resolve your differences during the divorce, parenting without hostility will most likely be a challenge.



But even in the worst divorce cases, there have been parents who have been able to put aside their differences and co-parent in a healthy and positive way. If you are dealing with an ex with… Continue

Warning: Scam may affect your child support payments

If you receive child support payments through a debit card then you need to know about a new scam targeting parents. Thousands of parents across the country have reported receiving messages asking them for personal information about their debt cards.



The card, known as EPPICard, is given to custodial parents as a way to receive child support payments instead of a direct bank deposit. The parent can use the card as a credit card in stores and also withdraw cash. It seemed like a great… Continue

Social Security and Divorce: What are you entitled to?...

My 62 year old widowed mother recently began receiving my father's social security death benefits. We had to call the social security office to find out how the process works. I became curious about what benefits- if any-divorced people are entitled to. During my own divorce, my lawyer never discussed this issue with me. After 13 years of marriage, most of those spent as a stay at home mom, if I would be entitled to my ex-husband's social security benefits.



I went to the government's… Continue

Infidelity: How Do You Tell your Children about the Affair? You Shouldn’t, Experts Say

Our own member Roz Sedacca was recently quoted in a major Divorce 360 article posted here. Read on to see what she has to say, and to learn more about whether or not to tell children about an affair:



When former presidential nominee John Edwards admitted he’d cheated on his wife, the question on some minds was how someone touted as a family man told his wife – and his three children about the affair.



“How do you tell your children about the affair? You don’t,” said… Continue

How Do We Get The Peaceful Divorce Message Out?

It seems to me that it is just too easy for couples contemplating divorce to fall into the adversarial system. Even those folks who start out with the intention of doing things peacefully get sucked into the system. I'm thinking about a couple I met with a few months ago who wanted to avoid a "war." We had an educational and philosophical discussion about marital dissolution and coparenting (they've got one young child). I heard from them very briefly over the course of a few months -- they… Continue

Stop Fighting with your Ex! Communication Strategies for Moms that Actually Work

Don't Worry, Get Healthy!

We have heard that before!! But, do we really live it every day?



I would bet that since you have been going through the transition of separation or divorce, you have been overwhelmed with all that is going on in your life and either you have rationalized letting go of your commitment to your body because you:



* have decided that there are other things that are more of a priority

* been attracted to "comfort food"...you know, pizza, pasta, ice cream...

Divorce As A Journey

Divorce as a Journey



It has been almost four years since my divorce and I realize that the word divorce does not accurately or adequately describe what this time has really been like. It was not an end, or a moment of it being “over”, it has been a transition. It has not been the end of a marriage, but rather a redefiningof myself and of family…a beginning.



The word “divorce” means to legally dissolve a marriage and to leave one’s husband/wife.” It makes it all sound so… Continue

Huge Legal Costs - Not Just For Celebrity Divorces!

Do you have any idea what a celebrity divorce costs? I’m talking about those divorces where the celebrity couple decided to battle it out instead of getting a peaceful divorce!



Check out these numbers - in the McCartney divorce it was reported that Heather Mills ended up over $3million in debt for her legal bills in her divorce battle with Paul McCartney and had to sell her home to pay off her lawyers! David Hasselhoff’s legal fees in his divorce were reputed to be over… Continue

How Important Is the Budget in Divorce Planning?

I think everyone’s least favorite word is BUDGET. Why don’t we want to hear that word? Think about it: We’re asking ourselves to do something we don’t want to do — or worse yet, someone else is asking us to do it. While we might not like them, having a budget does help. In divorce planning — whether you are going to litigation,…See More

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
