The Divorce and Beyond Podcast with Susan Guthrie, Esq.

Sep 12 2022 • 40 mins

It’s Divorce with Respect Week! Attorney Deb Noonan and Therapist, Jennifer Luise Champagne of CCND join Susan Guthrie, Esq. to share insights into why divorcing with respect is essential to your BEYOND!

As families move through the divorcing process, parents are often focused on their emotions over their soon-to-be ex. Respect and kindness are the furthest things from their minds. Yet, the reality of divorce is that it’s not just about what is happening today. It’s also about looking toward the future. How you divorce today will have so much to do with how you live your life beyond divorce.

Leading divorce professionals from The Connecticut Council for Non-Adversarial Divorce join Susan for this impactful conversation about respect, integrity, and divorce.  Deborah Noonan, JD, is an experienced family law attorney who for the past 20 years has limited her practice to divorce mediation and Collaborative Divorce.  Jennifer Luise Champagne, MA, is a licensed professional counselor whose career has been devoted to the emotional and parenting issues of divorce.

Respectful insights from this episode include:

  • Deb and Jennifer share their thoughts about what a respectful divorce looks like
  • The challenges of maintaining respect during divorce
  • Re-establishing integrity with your ex-partner and co-parent after separation
  • Some helpful interventions or tools for when parties are having a hard time remaining respectful
  • What you can expect from Divorce with Respect week from CCND, including online events and workshops

Respect can be in short supply throughout the divorce process. But, it is possible to obtain. Listen to this episode to hear how to divorce in a respectful and dignified way!

About this week's special guests: Deborah Noonan, JD, and Jennifer Luise Champagne, MA

Deborah Noonan, JD is an experienced family law attorney who for the past 20 years has limited her practice to divorce mediation and Collaborative Divorce.  After spending a number of years litigating divorces, and witnessing firsthand the harm contentious divorces cause families, especially children, Deborah decided to focus her family law practice on alternative methods of dispute resolution. As a mediator and collaborative attorney, Deborah works with clients to assist them in working out a settlement agreement in a cooperative and mindful problem-solving process that places great emphasis on reducing conflict, keeping children the focus, and empowering the parties to control the outcome of their divorce.  Deborah helps clients create quality solutions to meet their and their family’s individualized needs, bringing outside professionals, such as therapists and divorce financial specialists, into the process to promote a more holistic result. Deborah has had extensive mediation and Collaborative Divorce training and has presented on both topics at seminars and conferences.
