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 Real Estate Specialist, Joan Rogliano joins us to discuss the up and downside of real estate during divorce. 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.
Joanie Lesley & Steve are back with their final show before Christmas and the conversation picks up where it left off last week, with being single again and the journey of on-line dating after divorce.
Steve shares his experience with someone he has recently met on eHarmony and Joanie shares her personal experiences with the dating site as well. Both of the girls are providing advice to Steve on what to look for and watch out for during this adventure.
Tis the season to be sick, and Lesley and Steve share their germ phobia and love for Pruell. Lesley has some funny stories of how her son cleans up after school and her plans to visit family in Ohio.

One of the biggest fears post-divorce are finances. Trusting yourself to make financial choices is a big issue, especially when it comes to your divorce settlement. Our guest, Dr. Deborah Nixon, helps us to understand what we need to do. Dr. Nixon is an entrepreneur, professor, executive, consultant, and community volunteer; she has identified a common need in today’s cautious working environment for trusting professional relationships. Economic instability has undercut our readiness to trust one another – and this is especially hard in divorce. We’re gong to relate this all to your post-divorce life.
Dr. Nixon helps us understand the importance of building and maintaining trust in ourselves when making financial decisions – especially when it’s post-divorce, and the worry is “what about my future?” She has developed the MyMoneyMindset and Trust Intelligence Program and shares her work, to help us with financial decision-making. We discuss the intangibles of trust, reputation and integrity to make them tangible and practical.
To understand how these goals are met in reasonable manner we explore:
- Defining Moments as a pivot point for deeper understanding of financial decision-making
- How assessments, coaching and consulting have helped clients learn to take charge of their money while helping professionals learn what their clients need from them.
- Helping to develop Financial Wellness
- The 10 Minute Survey
- The importance of feeling strong so that you can manage your money
My Money Mindset will help you make better and more informed decisions about your money. Tackle those hard issues. A raise, the family budget, a financial plan, your relationship with your financial professional. Don’t you owe it to yourself! Isn’t your peace of mind worth it? This interview will surely help you understand what trust means, trust breaches and trust repair. Fascinating stuff.

Happy Holidays from the Single Again! Now What? posse!
On this episode, Joanie, Lesley and Steve talk about custody issues divorced couples face during the holidays. Lesley’s ex is choosing to be out of state and away from his son for Christmas in order to spend time with a new love interest. Steve and Joanie have strong feelings about this, but Lesley is taking the high road and doing what’s in the best interest of her son.
This is the first show recorded from the new DSR studio, as Steve has recently moved and took the studio with him. Since Steve left everything to his wife after their divorce three years ago and has been living in a furnished place since, this entailed buying EVERYTHING new for the new place, an exhausting and expensive task that many find themselves doing after leaving a marriage and starting over.
The conversation turns to e-Dating services and the trio share their experiences with this. Joanie has been there, done that, Steve is just checking it out, and Lesley is far too busy to consider it at this time. So can true love really be found on-line? Stay tuned.
Finally, the gang talk about how the kids of someone you’re dating can drive a wedge between your relationship. So what would you do if someone you were dating had kids that were rude and disrespectful of you? The girls pitch in with their thoughts.

Infidelity happens in relationships for many different reasons. Some feel they aren’t receiving the attention they deserve from their partner, and seek a sexual or emotional relationship elsewhere. For others, it may be something that happened out of the blue, and afterwards, left them feeling guilty and ashamed.
Some marriages head towards divorce after a partner who has had an indiscretion told their partner of their affair. The question is, if you are in a relationship and had an affair, realized it was a mistake, and vow to never do it again, should you tell your partner? You might be surprised with Juliana’s answer. We take a look at the cause and effect of infidelity in marriage and offer advice on preventing affairs.
Also discussed in the program:
- Open relationships
- Is an emotional affair more damaging than a sexual affair?

- And much more.

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.
