Do it Yourself Divorce Mistakes - Second Saturday Divorce Workshop
"Don't assume that just because you and
your spouse are amicable with one another, that it will be easy to
settle your own divorce without the help of a professional."
While I almost always refer clients to a local mediator over a divorce attorney for the first-line of resolution, there are some mistakes that must be avoided.
Also, be sure to attend a local workshop on divorce, mediation, and resolution conflict before hiring a lawyer on retainer. In San Diego, we have Mira Costa College offering the Second Saturday Workshop and Parenting After Divorce. These are nationally respected presentations from an un-biased perspective, with neutral divorce and custody facts.
