Divorce. Is not a word we love to hear. Right?! If you want a divorce. You’re not the only one. In the United States, between 35%-50% of first-time marriages end in divorce.

Many women have and will face a divorce, which is why when given the opportunity to have my guest, Nanci Smith, Esq on my podcast, I jumped at the chance. Nanci Smith is an attorney licensed to practice in Vermont and New York. She is the chair of the Collaborative Divorce section of the Vermont Bar Association, a leader in her collaborative divorce practice group, and a member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals. She frequently writes and talks about divorce, family law, ethics, and collaborative divorce practices. She believes that a good divorce is possible when you show up for it with humility, compassion, and the correct support. Smith is the author of Untangling Your Marriage: A Guide to Collaborative Divorce which is available now.   

In this episode, Nanci and I talk about what it means to have a collaborative divorce, how you can get emotional closure after a divorce, how to take care of yourself during a divorce, and how you can be there for your friends and family who are going through a divorce. 

Divorce can take a huge toll on your self-esteem and if you want to emerge more confident after one of probably the hardest things you’ve faced in your life, you want to know what your options are, right? If you’re considering a divorce, going through one, or have gone through a divorce, I hope you find this episode helpful. 

In this episode of the Contagious Confidence Podcast, we talk about:

  • What is a collaborative divorce? 
  • Why you should consider a collaborative divorce
  • Signs you should get a divorce 
  • The best way to divorce for your kids
  • How to take care of yourself during a divorce 
  • How to support someone who is going through a divorce
