Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & Bari Weinberger discuss:

1. How does divorce affect a person’s health?

2. What is divorce anger?

3. How common is domestic violence and what should someone who is a victim do to protect themselves?

4. How can people minimize the impacts of divorce?

5. What can parents do to minimize the impacts of divorce on their children?

6. What are some ways people can prepare for a divorce?

7. What do you advise people to look for when choosing a divorce lawyer?

8. How can people prepare for their 1st meeting with their lawyer?

Summary Tips:

  • Keep it amicable. The more reasonable and amicable everyone is, the shorter the process and it can ultimately help lessen the overall cost, both financially and to the health and well-being of all involved.
  • Don’t get your children involved the more you get them involved the more resentful they will be and the more it will harm your relationship with your children.
  • Don’t be afraid to make compromises. A small compromise doesn’t need to translate into a weakness. A small compromise can often be recognized as a big gesture by the other party and can help move the process towards a quicker settlement.  Try not to get caught up in the little battles and focus on the big picture.

At the end of the day it is about moving on with your life and it is about new beginning.

About Lori Rubenstein:

As a personal life coach, I dare to transcend with my clients. I powerfully speak the truth while passionately and responsibly connecting with clients. Together, we joyfully and intuitively allow the spirit within us to soar. I have transcended many times in my own life. I am currently a Personal Life Coach, Mediator, and successful Divorce Attorney. I teach classes for Divorce and Custody as well as Life Makeover Classes. As a Divorce Attorney, I have worked with over a thousand clients to help them deal with fearful transitions in their lives.

As a mediator, I help people find creative solutions and gain dignity by resolving their own conflict. I am told that I am an amazing "idea person". As a coach, I love helping people to transcend their current situation and find joy and passion in their lives once again. My experience is both professional and personal.

As a mother of two children, I practice walking my talk. As a child of divorce, and also daily with my divorce clients, I know and see the effects of continuing the parental fight around children. It has serious ramifications on the children's self-esteem. As a divorced and remarried parent, I continue to be reminded of how my own choices affect my children. When I was a teen, I became involved with drugs, ending with a year long stint at a drug addiction center... this was a turning point in my life. Bottled up negative energy was transformed into courage, strength, and the ability to change and enrich my life. Once I recognized the need to change and grow, I discovered the resolve within myself to accomplish my desires.

I was the first in my family to graduate from college (University of Nevada in Reno), and graduated in 1985 with a Juris Doctor from Antioch School of Law in Washington, DC. I was an attorney for Legal Services in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, for 5 years and then the Regional Director of Oregon Legal Services' Roseburg branch for another five years.

In 1994 I became a certified mediator through Confluence Northwest in Portland, OR, and in 1995 I went into private practice. In 2002 I was certified by the Academy for Coach Training (Bellevue,WA) as a Certified Professional Coach. I have been on numerous legal and community boards. I was the past Young Career Woman for the Oregon Business and Professional Women's Club, past president of the Douglas County Bar Association, past board member of the Oregon Bar Association's Local Professional Responsibility Committee and Family Law Section, and was on numerous statewide family law task forces in both Oregon and Pennsylvania.
