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/

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.

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.
