Divorce When One Parent Comes Out

Going through a divorce is HARD. When you have kids, it has the potential to be even worse than normal. 

What do you think happens when you throw homosexuality into the mix?

In this episode of The Family Law Insider podcast, I talk with Jay Forte, an author, speaker and coach. Jay, an Italian Catholic and former accountant, went through this EXACT scenario after 10 years of marriage and 3 kids. 

The good news: He "came out" of it OK. Most importantly, so did his kids.

If you or someone you know is struggling to be true to who they REALLY are, this episode is a MUST-LISTEN:

Are You the Best Husband (or Wife) You Can Be?

I would venture to say the answer to that question is "no."

You, my friend, can always be better. How are you going to show up today differently than you did yesterday? There IS room to improve. You just have to be willing to admit that to yourself.

During this episode of The Family Law Insider, +Nick Pavlidis, the "Terrible Husband" talks with me about how you can become a better husband or wife.

Step 1: Start by believing you need to improve.

Step 2: Commit to improving.

Step 3: Do less crappy things tomorrow than you did today.

Step 4: Put healthy things into your mind.

Step 5: Apply what you're learning.

Step 6: Listen to the whole show here: http://www.hernandezfirm.com/better-husband/

Calling All Toddler Parents. I Have 4 Words for YOU.

You. Are. Not. Alone.

If you need a reminder of this fact, this hilarious post by +Crystal Ponti will help you feel all better inside. We, as parents of toddlers, are going through the same "stuff" on a daily basis. While you may love your little one, sometimes those tantrums make you want to scratch your eyeballs out. 

Ya just gotta laugh. And... take a shower. Annnnd... maybe have a drink.

You will relate to this post. You need to read this post. Trust me on this one.

How to Love Your Kids More Than You Hate Your Ex

That is the topic of discussion in this week's episode of The Family Law Insider Podcast. In the show, our resident psychotherapist, Dr.+Judy Rabinor (author of "Befriending Your Ex After Divorce") joins me to talk about re-defining your relationship with your ex post-divorce or post separation.

I was surprised to learn this idea can be boiled down to 4 important words:

1. Whoops.

2. Wow.

3. Thanks.

4. Please.

How to Have a Better Relationship With Your Ex

If you have children with your ex, this should be a non-negotiable goal that you have post-divorce or post-separation. Your kids' future health and happiness depends on it. 

During this episode of The Family Law Insider, Dr. Judy Rabinor, author of "Befriending Your Ex After Divorce," is back to talk with us on ways to re-create your relationship with your children's other parent.

It boils down to four easy words you learned as a child.

Really.

To find out what those words are, check out the show.

During this episode of The Family Law Insider, Jay Forte talks with us about his 10 year marriage, which ended when he came out to his wife. They had to not only piece together what life would be like as a divorced couple, but how they were to share an emotionally charged social issue with the kids and family as the reason for the divorce.

Are You Confusing Success with Significance?

And, in your quest for success, are you always trying to get more money so you can buy more stuff? 

And, have you ever considered that acquiring more money to buy more things might actually serve as a a distraction from what most of us really want?

Freedom. 

Connection.

Love.

These are just a few of the ideas I explore with today's featured guest on The Family Law Insider Podcast. +Joshua Becker, a father, husband, author, speaker and minimalist talks with us about the plusses of living with less...and actually having more.

Have Less. Live More. Minimalism.

According to this week's guest on The Family Law Insider podcast, "things" can be a distraction from what really matters in life. By becoming more intentional about the stuff you are acquiring, you become more intentional about every other aspect of your existence. You also become freer, and you gain more money, time and energy.

Who wouldn't want that?

Don't worry--you don't have to purge everything you've collected over the last twenty years in one weekend. It takes time. The key is starting small.

Just start with de-cluttering your car.

If you want to learn more about getting clutter-free (with kids even), yet having MORE in your life, listen to this episode.

Story
Tagline
A Phoenix, Arizona divorce lawyer and the owner of Hernandez Family Law. I am a centered, committed and sometimes dramatic (in the best sense of the word) woman, mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend and lawyer.
Introduction
I was born and raised in a small copper mining town in Northern Arizona.  Before going to law school in South Bend, Indiana, I had never traveled east of New Mexico.  I am grateful for the opportunity to have earned my law degree at the University of Notre Dame; the best professors taught me and there, I learned the importance of maintaining integrity in the practice of law.  I am cognizant of my integrity every day of my life, both personally and professionally.

While at Notre Dame, the travel bug bit me, even if I was only traveling throughout the midwest and eastern U.S.  After graduating from Notre Dame, I expanded my horizons and traveled the world during my vacation time -- mostly alone.  While "jet setting," I encountered amazing people, experiences AND food (one of my favorite things).  Because of my past travel, I have learned to appreciate diversity in cultures as a whole and within individuals.  My collective travel and work experiences have taught me that every person, even the accused murderer, has a story to tell. 

If we listen to people, we learn.  

If we learn, often, we can help.  

That is our purpose on this planet.  

That is MY purpose on this planet. 

How can I help you?
Bragging rights
I became a mother for the first time at 40 years old. Talk about the hardest (but most rewarding) learning curve I've ever experienced! Being a mother has changed my view on the world and has affected the way I practice law. Before, it was hard to put myself in the shoes of clients whose families were undergoing major changes. Now, I better understand the pain that goes along with the thought of not seeing your children daily or, even worse, losing them altogether. My primary focus is on the children, keeping them safe and healthy and maintaining the integrity of the family, even if the family is being redefined.
