Divorce Options®: The Importance of Learning “How” To Divorce

by | May 30, 2024

Does this blog title seem at first, a little out of the ordinary to you? Well, many people do not know that there are multiple ways to go through the divorce process. It is important to learn about various divorce options because knowing your options provides control over the process and can help couples to understand the short- and long-term effects on everyone involved. Learning that you have options enables more informed and educated conversations about the best way to proceed.

One of the primary methods to learn is by attending a Divorce Options® Workshop. These educational sessions are typically held virtually, at least once a month. Divorce Options® participants will discover that the litigated divorce process often depicted on television is not the only method available to them. They will learn about multiple options, each differing in cost, levels of privacy, involvement of professionals, and overall approach. Understanding these choices helps in selecting the best Divorce Options® path to follow.

A Divorce Options® Workshop covers the legal, financial, and emotional aspects of divorce and also addresses how to communicate with your children about the divorce process and helps you learn how to co-parent effectively. The workshop is purely educational-no products are being sold, and no single option is being promoted over another. The goal is simply to provide the knowledge necessary to assist you in making the best choice for your family.

Typically, the workshop will last about two hours, though some might extend to two and a half hours. The first half of the workshop covers the advantages and challenges of the four main options: do-it-yourself (self-representation), Mediation, Collaborative Divorce, and traditional adversarial divorce (litigation). The second half delves deeper into the three specific and detailed aspects of divorce mentioned above.

Divorce Options® workshops are led by divorce professionals from various fields- legal, financial, and mental health. Each presenter shares their expertise and provides comprehensive information from their perspective. This multidisciplinary approach ensures that you will receive well-rounded and unbiased guidance

Knowing your divorce options empowers you to make the best choices for your unique situation. The workshops aim to provide the education and support needed to navigate this challenging time effectively.

Should you participate in a Divorce Options® Workshop with your spouse?

You can attend with or without your spouse, but it is extremely beneficial for both of you to hear the same information, even if you each attend different sessions. This shared understanding helps in making educated decisions and facilitates better communication throughout the process.
