How One Mom‘s Battle is Changing the Face of High Conflict Divorce with Tina Swithin on Divorce & Beyond #206

November marks the start of Family Court Awareness Month and in this week's episode, Susan Guthrie is joined by Tina Swithin, the driving force behind the movement and the founder of One Mom's Battle, which grew out of her epic 10-year divorce battle with her narcissistic ex-husband.

Family Courts are challenged in so many ways with overworked judges and staff, limited support and resources and a public dealing with high emotion and financial strain.  When you add high conflict into the mix, it can truly be a perfect storm for disaster and Tina Swithin know this all too well.  Her decade long struggle through the family courts with her divorce and post-divorce custody issues with her narcissistic ex, gave her insights and an understanding of the system, and it's shortcomings and failures, that not many people experience.  Tina ultimately was able to represent herself in court and to terminate her exes parental rights, in an effort to protect her children and she is passionate about sharing her wisdom and experience with others.  Tina wrote her book, Divorcing a Narcissist: One Mom's Battle, which is now a website, program and community, to help those who need help as they navigate the broken family court system.  She also was the driving force behind establishing Family Court Awareness Month, intended to bring awareness to the shortcomings of the family law court system and spark conversation and change for the benefit of the children involved.  

In this episode, Tina covers her top questions to ask yourself to prepare to divorce a narcissist and protect your kids - don't miss it!

Thriving in divorce and beyond means not having to worry about the safety of your children when it comes to co-parenting. With alcohol abuse on the rise, many co-parents are turning to the system committed to providing proof, protection, and peace of mind. Soberlink’s alcohol monitoring system is the most convenient, reliable, and reasonable way for a parent to provide evidence that they are not drinking during parenting time.

With Soberlink, judges rest assured that your child is safe, attorneys get court-admissible evidence of sobriety, and both parents have empowerment and peace of mind.
