Seattle’s Divorce Workshop Apr 6, 2020

April 6 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm



Learn about the financial, legal and emotional aspects of divorce in Washington State at Seattle’s Divorce Workshop.  This three-hour class is taught by experts in Washington State divorce.  Washington State is unique in that we are one of nine community property states, but the only community property state not based on automatic equal division of assets.  This workshop will guide you through making financial and tax decisions, legal and parenting plans, and how to get through it all with the emotional guidance of a life coach.

My spouse and I are working on an amiable or collaborative divorce, does this class give information valuable for us?

Yes, absolutely. The ideal situation is where both parties desire an equitable settlement, and, just as important, agree on what an equitable settlement looks like. The legal and emotional issues are pertinent to all divorces, no matter how smooth or rough the going is.

May my divorcing spouse and I both come? Yes, you are both welcome.

Divorce is a process of preparing you to move forward into a single life, no matter how amiable it is, we want to assist you in the manner that is most helpful to you.

Unfortunately, our divorce is, or I expect it to be, contentious. Does this class offer value?

Yes. By having an interdisciplinary team presenting, we can share expertise and provide helpful information for all aspects of divorce.
