The Family Matters Podcast
Divorce lawyer Sarah answers questions, tackles taboos and chats to guests about their experiences of separating, divorcing, moving on and much more.
23 years ago, I helped my first client, Fozia, with her divorce. 23 years later, Fozia joins me as the first guest on my new podcast, Family Matters.
Every month, join me as I chat to guests about divorce, separation and moving on. Listen to conversations about coparenting, breaking the news to your family, or dealing with the stigma of divorce. We’ll share insights about planning a divorce, protecting your finances or looking after your mental health. I hope Family Matters offers practical advice but also shifts the conversation and stigma around divorce and separation. Raw, inspirational, heartfelt and sometimes funny, this is a podcast for anyone in need of some advice and hope.
The show is hosted by Sarah and produced by Mandip. Thank you for listening.
What Makes This Podcast Unique?
While there are some great podcasts out there that take a broad look at the reality of divorce…Family Matters by SKB Law delves deep into the experience of the South Asian community in the UK, and the cultural and practical implications and consideration of divorce therein.” – Erica Mills ‘ Law Podcasts: 5 Great Access to Justice Podcasts’
