We know that going through divorce or legal separation is stressful. That stress can be compounded by the lack of knowledge about the legal, financial, and personal/emotional issues. But, as is often said, “knowledge is power” and having more information can help alleviate some of the fear about the divorce process, the outcomes, and the impact on the family.
National Conflict Resolution Center is pleased to announce that it is offering a workshop to men and women thinking about or in the middle of divorce or legal separation. The workshop, called: THIRD SATURDAY, *, will take place on the Third Saturday of each month, starting on January 15, 2011 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Liberty Station, also known as NTC Promenade, (the old Naval Training Center).
The topics to be covered by experienced professionals in the field will be:
The Legal Issues presented by a Family Law Attorney: the divorce legal process and procedures; the laws regarding division of assets & debts, spousal and child support, sharing time with the children/co-parenting.
The Financial Issues presented by a Financial Expert: preparing for divorce, dividing the assets and the debts, valuing property, tax consequences
The Family/Personal Issues presented by a Family/Child Therapist or Psychologist: possible impacts on the spouses and the children, how to be strategic to minimize acrimony, how to help children deal with the changes;
Mediation as an Alternative to Litigation presented by a Mediator: the mediation process and procedures, the benefits of mediation, the costs of mediation
The cost of the workshop will be $35 if registered in advance, which must be received by the Thursday before the workshop. Registration at the door will be $45 and can be paid by check, cash or Visa or Mastercard.
