In this episode, I am excited to have on Allison Holzman to continue our parenting series on her journey balancing her career in family law and her 2 sons as a single-by-choice mother.

Allison is an attorney at Weinberger Divorce and Family Law Group, a midsize firm in New Jersey. She has been practicing for nearly 18 years and has focused exclusively on family law since 2002. Allison is also a single mom by choice to two adorable boys, ages 2 and 3 months, who make sure her life is never boring. When she isn't running after her boys, she enjoys pilates, Netflix, and warm chocolate chip cookies!

Topics Covered

  • Being a single mom by choice as a practicing attorney and the steps one would take in starting down a single mom by choice path.
  • Single mom does not just mean "get some sperm" - Allison goes into the online dating-like process of finding a donor and the many facets of control she had in deciding on the best candidate.
  • Strategies for coping with the loss of pregnancies, and dealing with the waiting and rising out-of-pocket costs.
