Years ago as I was marketing my CDFA® skills to family law attorneys, I started getting referrals from these attorneys but post-divorce. I discovered that many women were making poor choices regarding their settlement options and I thought I could have helped educate both them and their attorneys prior to signing agreements.
In 2008, I discovered WIFE.org and the work that was being done through the Second Saturday workshops. I began the Birmingham Second Saturday workshop immediately as a free community service to educate women on the emotional, legal, and financial issues of divorce. I’ve found that addressing each of these areas collectively helps women to be more grounded in their decision making.
I truly believe that providing this education helps women make smarter choices regarding the future of their families.
