20 Children of Divorce

Adult child of divorce

During a divorce the focus is most often on the couple that is splitting up or any small children they may have. Older or adult children can be overlooked and often become the confidants and support systems for their divorcing parents. The truth is that having family split apart is painful at any age and being expected to be a rock for your parent(s) while not having support or space to process this change in family dynamic can be traumatic. This episode of the Podcast features suggestions for acknowledging the strife, realizing it's not your fault, forgiving and moving on with your life.

17 What's an ICMC?

Confused

When a petition for divorce gets filed with the Court, that begins the official legal process. The first step in the Court's process is for both parties and their attorneys to meet with the Court and state the basic facts of the marriage and soon-to-be divorce. This meeting is called an Initial Case Management Conference, or an ICMC. This episode of the Podcast describes how an ICMC helps to begin the process of dividing lives (and property) and can lead to effective resolution alternatives, and ultimately to a more amicable divorce.
