is a resource and a haven for women contemplating
divorce, in the process or post-decree. Our mission is to provide education,
support and guidance to women in the divorce process, so that they can move
confidently towards independence.
We believe the more
information and support women have as they move through this difficult
process, the better the decisions they'll make for themselves and their
children, and the more hopeful they can be about the future.
We offer help four ways:
- Individual Information Sessions for women at the beginning of the
process, to help them assess their options and learn what to expect
legally, financially and emotionally.
- Divorce Workshops and Seminars including evening and weekend sessions
in Chicago and the north and northwest suburbs, and our semi-annual
Divorce University. Topics include what to expect in the divorce process,
the role of attorneys, mediators and financial planners, what women need
to know about finances, helping children through divorce, co-parenting,
infidelity, making career transitions, reducing stress and more.
