On this episode of Single Again! Now What?, the show begins in a heartbeat... or should we say, skip of a heartbeat.   Steve recently had a bout with Arial Fibrillation and tries to describe the  symptoms.

After the dynamic duo get off that depressing topic, they break down the movie Steve mentioned last week, Blue Valentine.  (It's interesting to note how men and women can have different opinions after watching the same movie.)   Hey, what can you say, Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.

Our guest today is the co-author of GPS Your Best Life, Charmaine Hammond.   Charmaine and Deborah Kasowski provide  simple, practical strategies, accompanied by down to earth assessment tools in their book that help put you behind the wheel, guiding you from figuring out what revs your engine to what’s blocking your view.

Hammond explains how to live your best life and provides examples of what gets in the way and blocks our success.  We learn the importance of a creating a "vision board" to help visualize how you want your life to look, and discover ways to find our true purpose in life.

This episode of Single Again! Now What? with Joanie, Lesley & Steve, begins with a discussion about the movie Blue Valentine.  Steve saw the movie on Netflix and recommends all of our listeners watch it and provide their feedback.  (Note that there are adult scenes in the movie.)

People who need family lawyers are different from people who need other types of lawyers. If you are going through a separation or divorce, or if you need help with child custody or access, child or spousal support, or a children’s aid society issue, your case is about your life.

The lawyer you choose, and how the separation agreement is settled will also determine how amicable or adversarial the divorce process is, once again impacting your life.  In this episode of The Smart Divorce with Deborah Moskovitch, family law lawyer, John Schuman helps us understand the differences between all of the Alternative Dispute Resolutions to consider when coming to a separation agreement.  We discuss the importance of staying out of court, but also when it might the only option.   John has litigated before every level of court in Ontario, so readily understands the outcomes – not only from a decision perspective, but the impact on emotions as well.
