This week on Financially Ever After, Stacy is joined by New York family and matrimonial law attorney, Carolyn Walsh Parry. After an initial successful legal career in corporate law, the opportunity to participate in a Hague Convention (international child parental abduction) case led to Carolyn’s decision to transition from civil law to family law.


Join Stacy and Carolyn in this podcast as they discuss the implications of Hague Convention Treaty on multinational families experiencing divorce, as well as sharing advice for all women who are facing tough decisions during divorce.


Among the topics discussed in this episode:

  • How parental abduction of children happens much more frequently than we realize, and how easy it can be for non-custodial parents to take children across international borders. [5:50]
  • What to look for in a divorce lawyer and what to avoid when selecting a divorce attorney (hint: be wary of the “bulldog”).  [19:50]
  • How good negotiation skills are just as important in litigation as they are in mediation. [24:20]
  • Where to look for an emotional support system and why everyone who is dealing with a divorce needs one. [30:40]
  • Why, when in the midst of divorce preparation and proceedings, you should behave as though each of your emails, phone calls and actions could be shared with a judge. [31:20]
