Public Education

public-educationThroughout the year, we offer public education seminars focused on all the numerous legal, financial and psychological aspects of divorce. Each session is led by a professional in our network who specializes in the subject area, whether it be divorce and alimony law, divorce court procedures, mediation, family therapy or one of the many aspects of financial planning that come into play when people contemplate divorce (changes in lifestyle/living expenses, mortgages, auto and school loans, tuition planning, etc.). Our goal is to provide the critical information and assistance that people need before, during and after the divorce process, and to help them make the decisions that are best for themselves and for their children.
