In today’s episode of Divorcing Well, I interview Jason Eric Ross, a Licensed Psychotherapist (NY/FL/GA) and co-author of the parenting book entitled “You Can Say NO and Your Child Will Still Love You”.

We discuss the most important divorce topic which is parenting through divorce and how to make the divorce process easier for your children.

Jason addresses how to tell children of various ages that Mom and Dad are separating, how to deal with a spouse who badmouths you to your children, managing parental alienation, co-parenting with an abuser and much more.

This episode provides a wealth of information to guide parents on helping their children cope with divorce.

Julie is a survivor of a relationship with a narcissist and shares her personal journey about the challenges of leaving, the healing she has done, and how those of you who feel trapped in the same situation can get out of it with grace and empowerment.

Covid-19 is having a significant effect on our daily lives and how family law is being practiced right now.  In the debut episode of Divorcing Well, I chat with fellow family law lawyer, Chantalle Sawision, about the effects of Covid-19 on family law clients.  

We discuss the court closures, how custody and access orders are being affected, the financial implications, and much more.  We even point out the silver lining of Covid-19 for the way that family law is practiced.  

If you are separated or divorced, and have questions about the effects of recent events on your family law matter, you won’t want to miss this episode.
