Why would you consider attending The Divorce Expo?
Well, let’s start off simply. I’m been asked to be there to do a presentation on “Collaborative Divorce”, so I’d love to see you and your friends there learning about this constructive approach to dissolving a marriage. You may not be heading toward divorce, but you may well know others who are. If they are not ready or able to attend, you can do them a great service by doing so and sharing what you learn. Or maybe you’ll just come with them for support.
But I won’t be the only person there and Collaborative Practice won’t be the only thing to learn about. The Expo is described as being “…designed to give you opportunities to learn, share and discover how to take control of your divorce or separation. We want every one of our attendees to feel more confident about their future at the end of our time together.”
If you’re familiar with Collaborative Practice, you know that’s nearly a perfect description of our focus as professionals. So the decision for me to accept the invitation was a very easy one.
The speakers will be addressing topics from single parenthood and co-parenting to financial planning and household organizing and transitioning to singlehood in a positive manner. Here’s the current list of speakers and topics.
