”We Need to Talk:” How to Have the Most Difficult Conversation of Your Life with Kate Anthony on Divorce & Beyond #215

In this episode, Top Family Law Attorney, Susan Guthrie speaks with friend and host of The Divorce Survival Guide Podcast, Kate Anthony about the right way to tell your spouse that you have decided to divorce.

It is January 3rd, 2022, the first Monday in the New Year and that means that it is D-Day (Divorce Day) the day that more people reach out to divorce attorneys and other divorce professionals than any other day of the year.  This kicks off what we in the industry call Divorce Month (January) and Divorce Season (January - March) because traditionally, this is when people, those who have been considering divorce for a long time or those who make a quick decision, find themselves pulling the trigger and moving forward.

The decision to divorce is hard, and can take a long time, but the next step, telling your spouse, is one of the most critical steps in the process and it is imperative to do it right!  Kate Anthony, Susan's guru on all things communication, joins her for this episode to help you plan that conversation so that you start things off the best way possible.  Trust us, this is truly one of the most important conversations that you will ever have and it pays to put time and effort into doing it the best way possible so that you can, as Kate says in the episode, put your head on the pillow that night knowing you did your best.

They say that you should start as you mean to go and that is never more true than when starting a divorce.  How you tell your spouse, will set the stage for how your divorce will unfold and in many ways, how you will continue into your BEYOND so take the time and do it right!

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. Soberlink’s real-time alerts, facial recognition, and tamper detection ensure the integrity of each test, so you can be confident your kids are with a sober parent. 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. Pull back the curtain on the mysteries of parenting time and trust The Experts in Remote Alcohol Monitoring Technology™ to keep you informed and your kids safe and secure.
