How to Choose the Right Attorney When You’re Divorcing a Disordered Spouse

Understanding best interest attorneys, custody evaluators and parent coordinators

Live Webinar: Thursday, November 1, 2018 | 8 PM to 9 PM EST

Highlights

  • Why your divorce is only as good as your attorney
  • How switching attorneys hurts your case
  • 6 issues that could derail a high-conflict divorce
  • 10 questions to ask attorneys — and the answers you must receive
  • What you need to know about paying for your divorce

About the Program:

All divorces are bad, but when you’re divorcing a sociopath, it could be really, really bad. Spouses with personality disorders create “high-conflict” divorces. They are entitled, manipulative and vindictive. They do not believe the rules — including court orders — apply to them. To get through your divorce as best you can, you need an attorney who is up to the challenge.

Not all of them are. If you choose the wrong attorney, it could seriously damage your case. You may have to fire him or her and start again — which will keep you in court longer and cost you a lot of money.

Pick the best attorney the first time. In this webinar, Susan Shofer, the Divorce Consultant, teaches you how to do it. She explains the six common issues that arise in high-conflict divorces, which your attorney must be able to handle. She teaches you the 10 questions to ask prospective attorneys — and the answers they must give you. If you don’t hear those answers, you should move on and interview someone else.

Divorcing a sociopath is not easy — but with the right attorney, it can be manageable. Susan teaches you how to choose the attorney who can truly help you.

Battling Parental Alienation Syndrome:

What to do when your ex convinces your children to hate you

Live Webinar: Recorded on Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Highlights

  • 6 reasons why a parent engages in alienation
  • How alienators get children to distance themselves
  • Why courts typically get parental alienation all wrong
  • How to parent when your kids are being alienated
  • How to find a program to help you reunite with your kids

Is your ex encouraging your children to disrespect you? Even hate you? Toxic divorces can include parental alienation, in which a child “aligns himself or herself strongly with one parent and rejects a relationship with the other parent, without legitimate justification” (Dr. William Bernet, Vanderbilt University).

Sadly, some parents are so vindictive that they want to hurt their former partners in the worst way possible, so they intentionally try to ruin the children’s relationship with their ex. If you’re the ex who is being targeted for alienation, you know how heartbreaking it is.

Susan Shofer knows how you feel — she’s been there. But Susan was able to successfully overcome her ex’s attempts to alienate the two children they shared. In this webinar, Susan will teach you what she learned through her own toxic divorce, and through her work as a licensed private investigator. You’ll learn how parental alienation happens, how it is viewed by the courts and mental health professionals, and, if you’re facing it, what you can do.
