Putting Children First in a Divorce
Tosh is delighted to be chatting to her guest in this episode of the Divorce Goddess Podcast. Sarah Armstrong is a good divorce proponent who, based on her personal experience wrote "The Mom’s Guide to a Good Divorce: What to Think Through When Children are Involved" (www.gooddivorce.guide). She defines a good divorce as one that puts the children first. Of course, most divorcing parents say they want to do what’s best for the children but walking that walk through the stresses of a divorce is challenging at best. Sarah’s valuable advice and actionable strategies can help. What's so interesting about Sarah is that -- by day -- she is Vice President of Global Marketing Operations at Google, who has mentored both men and women her entire career. After hours, she is an avid “good divorce” proponent whose personal passion is sharing the keys to having a good divorce with moms everywhere.

Thinking of Moving? Divorce and Relocation
Delighted to be talking to family lawyer Connie Atkinson of Kingsley Napley LLP about divorce and relocation. Whether you or your ex wants to move away, we talk about the impact it can have on those you love and your children's experience of living as a two-parent family moving forwards. Not forgetting the why, when it is done mindfully, how it can affect all of your lives more positively moving forwards. Work, schools and family are all important considerations when going through a divorce and, the quality of a much already changed life can be affected not only by the rising cost of living, fuel and house prices, but the ease of access and time with both parents, all of this going into the recipe of where you call your post-divorce home.
