“Crazy Love: Why Domestic Violence Victims Don’t Leave with NYT Best-Selling Author and TEDx Speaker, Leslie Morgan Steiner” on Breaking Free: A Modern Divorce Podcast #157

August 19, 2019

In this important episode, Rebecca Zung, Esq. and Susan Guthrie, Esq. have a frank discussion with NYT Best-Selling Author, Leslie Morgan Steiner, about her books, Crazy Love  and The Naked Truth which tell the tale of her journey through domestic abuse and divorce to find peace and happiness in her 50s.

Domestic violence is neither an easy, nor a simple topic, but it must be talked about, exposed and the stories shared.  It is by shining a light on the subject that current victims find the information and support to leave, and future generations of abuse victims are educated to spot abusers and learn how to avoid or end abuse in their relationships.  

 

Our guest on this episode, Leslie Morgan Steiner, is beautiful, intelligent, Harvard educated AND she is an abuse survivor.  With a perfect life and marriage in the eyes of others, Leslie lived a secret life of fear and pain due to physical and emotional abuse.    In this episode detailing how she finally escaped the relationship and went on to thrive and succeed, Leslie generously shares critical information and life-saving details on how abuse victims can escape safely and end the cycle of abuse.  Everyone needs to be educated on this topic.  As Leslie cautions, "domestic violence happens in every community, in every single religion, income level, education level, ABSOLUTELY everywhere."  Someone you know, or YOU, could be a victim.  Listen NOW!

 

If you are a VICTIM OF DOMESTIC ABUSE, please contact your local courthouse for service referrals and information on obtaining a restraining order or call the FREE 24/7 CONFIDENTIAL NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOTLINE at 800-799-7233 or visit their website at www.thehotline.org.

The Clash song, "Should I Stay or Should I Go?" takes on new meaning when you are facing the question of divorce.  The internal debate that many people go through trying to answer the question of staying or going can drag out for an agonizingly long period of time.  Kate Anthony, certified divorce coach and the host of The Divorce Survival Guide Podcast, has a program that helps you to answer that question and helps you to answer that questions and stop living in marriage limbo!  We talk about some of the key factors that you need to consider when deciding if divorce is the right path for you and also whether or not it's a good idea to stay for your kids.  If you are struggling with this question, or just want some help in communicating with your spouse and working on your relationship, then this is the episode for you - LISTEN NOW!

More about Kate Anthony:

Kate empowers women to find their strength, passion, and confidence even in the most disempowering of circumstances and helps them move forward with concrete plans set on a solid foundation, putting their children at the center (not in the middle) of all decisions.

July 29, 2019

Jill Sherer Murray is a TEDx speaker, author, blogger, coach, and founder of Let Go For It®, a lifestyle brand that helps people let go for a better life.

“Love Factually:  Scientifically Proven Dating Methods” with Dr. Duana Welch on Breaking Free:  A Modern Divorce Podcast #153

“Love Factually: Scientifically Proven Dating Methods” with Dr. Duana Welch on Breaking Free: A Modern Divorce Podcast #153

July 22, 2019

In this episode, Rebecca Zung, Esq. and Susan Guthrie, Esq. talk with social scientist and dating expert, Dr. Duana Welch, author of Love Factually:  10 Proven Steps from I Wish to I Do, and they discuss the science behind dating, how to let go of your old attachments, how to control your ex, and how to date successfully as a single parent!  

Dr. Duana Welch (pronounced DWAY-nah) is the original Love Factually author and coach known for using social science to solve real-life relationship issues. She was a professor at universities in Florida, California, and Texas across 20 years, and has contributed to NPR, PBS, Psychology Today, and numerous other outlets, podcasts and videos. Her first book, Love Factually: 10 Proven Steps from I Wish to I Do (2015), is now out globally in five languages. Love Factually for Single Parents [& Those Dating Them] (2019) is the second book in the series, specifically geared for finding the right partner not only for readers, but their families. And new book series Love Factually Singles (2019-ongoing) provides science-based dating advice in short, single-topic titles to save readers’ time and money while delivering content specific to their needs. All of Duana’s books rely on science rather than opinion to help men and women find and keep the right partner; and they all have a blue cover, for easy identification. Her Love Factually client practice is global, via Skype and other technologies.Thanks to science and Vic Hariton, she is happily married. For more information and free content, see LoveFactually.co.

“Protective Orders - The Straight Dope:  When Do You Need Them & When Can You Get Them?” on Breaking Free: A Modern Divorce Podcast #150

“Protective Orders - The Straight Dope: When Do You Need Them & When Can You Get Them?” on Breaking Free: A Modern Divorce Podcast #150

July 1, 2019

In this episode Rebecca Zung, Esq. and Susan Guthrie, Esq. discuss the ins and outs of protective orders, restraining orders and injunctions on Breaking Free: A Modern Divorce Podcast.

Relationships can be difficult and when you throw divorce into the mix, a bad situation can become volatile!  In fact, abuse can happen in any relationship and often it is necessary for a person who fears harm from another, to seek an order from a court barring the other person from coming near them, abusing them and even from contacting them in any way.  If you fear harm from another, a romantic partner or not, you may need to seek a protective order or restraining order.  Find out in this episode when these orders are issued and what you need to tell a judge to get one.  Don't take your safety, or that of your children and pets for granted - Listen to this episode today and find out how to get protection!

If you are a VICTIM OF DOMESTIC ABUSE, please contact your local courthouse for service referrals and information on obtaining a restraining order or call the FREE 24/7 CONFIDENTIAL NATIONAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE HOTLINE at 800-799-7233 or visit their website at www.thehotline.org.

“Avoiding Disaster!  Divorce Mediation Do’s & Don’ts from Top Mediators” on Breaking Free:  A Modern Divorce Podcast #149

“Avoiding Disaster! Divorce Mediation Do’s & Don’ts from Top Mediators” on Breaking Free: A Modern Divorce Podcast #149

June 24, 2019

In this episode, Rebecca Zung, Esq. and Susan Guthrie, Esq. were LIVE at the Southern California Mediation Association’s (SCMA’s) Family Mediation Institute and interviewed the top mediators in the country to get their advice for how to avoid disaster!  Listen in to get the tips and tricks on what to do and what NOT to do to make sure your divorce mediation is successful. 

Negotiating your divorce settlement successfully means saving thousands of dollars and saving yourself emotional and physical stress.    If you end up having to go before a judge, you have no idea what will happen as judges make bad decisions every single day... that's why there is an appeals process.   The litigation route is expensive, unpredictable and heartbreaking.   Instead, learn to mediate skillfully (and still get what you want!)  by tuning into this episode.   You won't hear this advice anywhere else!

“Relocation, Relocation, Relocation:  How To Move Away With Your Kids in Divorce” on Breaking Free: A Modern Divorce Podcast #148

“Relocation, Relocation, Relocation: How To Move Away With Your Kids in Divorce” on Breaking Free: A Modern Divorce Podcast #148

June 17, 2019

In this episode, Rebecca Zung, Esq. and Susan Guthrie, Esq. discuss the difficult, costly and emotional issue of relocation and move away cases in divorce and family law matters.

There are few issues in family law more complicated or fraught with emotion than the relocation cases because there is just no easy answer.  The idea of your children moving far away from you is a parent's worst nighmare and can be the cause of a very long and expensive court battle.  Susan and Rebecca share tips and stories from their many years of handling these tough cases and help you to understand just what a judge will consider when deciding if the children can move, who will pay for all the travel if they do and the best way to get permission if you are the one who wants to move.  They even share some ideas of what to expect on cross-examination if you find yourself on the stand in one of these cases!  Don't miss this one!
