San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/20/2018 -- The three-hour program is for families with and without children, formally married or not, and same gender and opposite genders couples. Attorneys with the CFLGSD will explain the divorce process and what to expect along the way. Among the topics are:
- Traditional divorce
- Mediated divorce
- Collaborative divorce
"Each one of these avenues for divorce has pro's and con's," said Lynn Waldman, President of the CFLGSD. "In Divorce Options, you will hear from legal experts who are not representing you or your partner. You will get straightforward information on the process, not advice about your situation. We want you to understand what divorce entails from a legal, financial, and emotional point of view."
The workshop also covers, "how" to tell the children about your divorce, and how to manage emotions and relationships during the process.
"Divorce is more than just who gets what property and money. People and their feelings are involved too. The CFLGSD brings financial experts and counseling professionals to the workshop. They will tell you about your options and choices," Ms. Waldman said. "We are interested in making sure everyone in a divorce gets through the process with as little trauma as possible. By giving you unbiased information, you are in a much better position to decide what path to take if you and your partner are going to separate and divorce."
Those speaking and other members of the CFLGSD will answer common questions from the audience.
Among the points up for discussion are:
- Divorce cost in all three methods
- Time for a divorce to be complete
- Starting the divorce process
- Community resources
- Spousal support
- Child custody
- Tax consequences
