Sometimes approaching your court case without an attorney can leave you vulnerable and without all the information you need to make good decisions. Diane & Rick explore a listener’s frustrations about her parenting plan language and how things may have been different if she had not run out of money and had to act pro se.

We are excited to announce a new benefit for listeners who become Patreon VIPs (for only $10/month)! Diane will be hosting support groups online every Wednesday at noon (EST) for an hour, beginning March 6th. You can come to one or come to all.
Each week of the month will focus on a different subject:

1st Wednesday of each month: Staying Grounded in the Midst of Parental Alienation
2nd Wednesday of each month:
Dealing with the Trauma of False Accusations
3rd Wednesdays:
Surviving the Narcissistic Co-Parent
4th Wednesdays:
Confronting Post-Separation Control and Abuse

We'll do this through May, but if attendance remains constant, we'll continue through he summer. Just CLICK HERE to become a Non-Impossible VIP, and the Zoom link will be sent to you each week. Hope to see you on Wednesdays this Spring!

If you have a problematic paragraph in your parenting plan that you would like the hosts to review,  email it to 1234Dilemma@gmail.com.
