In this episode of We Chat Divorce, we welcome Lisa Johnson, co-founder of Been There Got Out.
As Co-Founder of Been There Got Out, Lisa is a high conflict divorce coach and certified domestic violence advocate who has successfully represented herself through scores of court appearances. Her case, published in the Connecticut Law Journal, is being used as legal precedent. Her live testimony helped pass Jennifer’s Law in Connecticut, the third state in America to expand its legal definition of domestic violence to include “coercive control.” She and her partner, Chris, the male half of Been There Got Out, coach people in high-conflict relationships, divorce, custody battles, and co-parenting hell so they have the chance of the best outcome in family court and beyond. They also offer a weekly Legal Abuse Support Group for those dealing with narcissistic opponents in legal matters. Their book, “Been There Got Out: Toxic Relationships, High-Conflict Divorce, and How to Stay Sane Under Insane Circumstances” was released in March 2023.
Our episode today is all about Navigating Legal Representation in High Conflict Divorces – How to Stay Sane and Smart.
In this episode we will discuss:
- Forms of legal abuse and what you can do about it
- How to find the right support resources for yourself
- Why a high-conflict person doesn’t just move on after divorce
- What trauma can look like after a high-conflict divorce
