Many people transitioning through a divorce want to distance themselves from the other party as quickly as possible and this can result in poor, and ultimately expensive, mistakes. Prematurely paying off joint credit cards, selling personal property, and buying or selling real estate are some examples that require extreme caution prior to the final settlement.
Buying a new home is a common first step to cleanse a person of the divorce experience. They want to leave the marital home and strike out on their own, make a fresh start and solidify their independence. What better way to express their new situation than to create an oasis in the form of a new home.

Divorce Consultant, Deborah Moskovitch joins the show as well adding her expert opinion. If you are going through the process of divorce and own real estate, this is a “must hear” show.

From The Family Support Expo in Toronto, Canada, Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck features attorneys Lorne Fine and Stephanie Pasternak to discuss Alternative Dispute Resolution for a more peaceful divorce.
It’s called Alternative dispute resolution, or ADR, and it has become very popular in recent years as the delay and expense associated with a divorce trial has encouraged lawyers and litigants to seek alternatives to divorce court. In alternative dispute resolution, parties typically engage the services of a neutral third party to help them resolve a divorce settlement without litigation.
There are a number of advantages to alternative dispute resolution. It typically costs less, can be resolved more quickly and is usually less hostile than litigation. By choosing a method of alternative dispute resolution, you may eliminate stress and hardship on all parties involved.

It’s normal to get angry from time-to-time, but what happens when you or a partner lose control and anger turns to rage? In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck, Latchman Narain, director-founder of the Anger Management Centre, joins us and helps decode anger and stress issues that can tear relationships apart.
In this program, we explore whether anger issues can be a result of something that happened during our childhood. Latchman offers insight on how to gain control over anger and offers hope for those seeking help. By learning to communicate with “solution talk,” as opposed to “problem talk,” disagreements with a partner become more productive and less confrontational.
By learning to recognize the signs of anger issues, and with the tools to deal with them, we can learn to communicate in much healthier ways.
Other topics covered include:
- What to do when your partner gets angry
- What’s happening in an angry person’s brain?
- Are angry people self-centered?
- How thought patterns can contribute to anger
- How therapy can help
- And much more.

In this program, attorney John Schuman of Devry Law joins Steve Peck to discuss the voice of a child during divorce.
Divorcing is tough enough, but add children to the mix, and divorce just got more complicated. Some parents get so caught up in the drama of divorce that they forget to think about how their children might be processing this restructuring of their families.
Protecting our children’s innocence should be the priority when divorcing, and this program will help you gain insight into what your children might be experiencing, regardless of their ages. In this discussion, Mr. Schuman also provides valuable advice to parents, especially those in high-conflict situations.
Topics in the program include:
- The effect divorce has on children
- Kids don’t want to decide where to live
- Children want to have a voice in the situation too
- The harm of fighting with your ex at sporting and public events
- Co-parenting around your children’s activities
- The concerns children have when their parents separate
- And much more.
Always remember, your children are watching you and how you handle your divorce. They will face their own conflicts in life, and, in many cases, model the behavior they witnessed in you. Be the best role model you can be during this very tough time. Your kids deserve it and there is nothing more important than protecting children during divorce.

At the time many couples decide to divorce, the intimacy in their relationship had subsided years ago. This process can erode slowly to the point where many don’t even notice it happening until it’s too late.
Intimacy includes sex but is much more than that. Intimacy is about being emotionally close to your partner, about being able to let your guard down, and let him or her know how you really feel. Intimacy is also about being able to accept and share in your partner’s feelings, about being there when he/she wants to let their defenses down.
So why does intimacy fade and can the flame be rekindled? Many affairs are the result of intimacy dying in a relationship, and then finding someone else that makes them feel more important, loved and understood than their own partner.
In this episode of Divorce Source Radio with Steve Peck from The Divorce Expo in Chicago, Rev. Dr. Gary A. Williams and his wife Greta join the program to discuss how to co-create successful, intimate relationships. They bring a new insight into love and marriage and offer and alternative to divorce.
