Divorce is very hard - it's hard when you are the one who wants it; it's hard when you are the one who doesn't want it.  It's hard when your kids are little; it's hard when your kids are big.  And it's hard when times are good - but it's particularly hard in times of economic uncertainty. 

What is a skillful divorce and how is it achieved?  Members of the Collaborative Council of the Redwood Empire (CCRE), a group of attorneys, financial professionals, and mental health professionals, will provide a panel presentation on divorce options at the above location and time.  The discussion will cover the full range of choices people have as they contemplate divorce, focusing on the non-adversarial  out-of-court options, including "Collaborative Practice" and mediation.  This is a unique opportunity for the public to learn about resources they can draw on to plan a skillful and effective transition that honors the needs and interests of all family members.  The program will be particularly useful to anyone thinking about divorce or other relational transition including LGBT couples looking for a process that is sensitive to their unique needs and for those who advise and help people through the divorce/transition process.

CCRE is a group of professionals interested in avoiding court battles and power struggles to resolve conflicts.  The group consists of family, probate and civil attorneys, mental health professionals, financial professionals, and other professionals.
