Announcing a new format, new handouts and all new programs for 2022!
Thank you all for your feedback in the prior years. In response to your suggestions we will have a new format, new handouts and an all new presentation for our 2022 workshops.
We will continue to hold meetings for women twice a month, once on the second Saturday and once on the fourth Sunday. We are now also holding meetings just for men on the first Sunday of the month (with the few exceptions noted above), with the idea to expand to a second monthly meeting on the third weekend, if there is sufficient interest. All meetings are under a safe-space, all-inclusive policy, non-judgmental policy. All meetings will continue to be from 2 pm to 5 pm.
The Saturday workshops will be guided by an experienced divorce attorney who has been Certified as a Specialist in Family Law by the California State Bar, Board of Legal Specialization and will focus on the most requested legal issues related to divorce. Each Saturday workshop will include an address on a previously requested legal topic as well as legal topics of general interest, brought by the attendees of the day. Upcoming Saturday addresses are: Legal Considerations At The Beginning. Should you move out? When to file? Before move-out checklist. Before filing checklist. What happens after filing? How do you survive until the next step. What You Need To Know About Attorneys. Do you need one? How to interview/hire one? Reasonable expectations. How to save money when working with an attorney. Things You Should Know About the Legal Process (but might not be told). Where to file your case. How to find out about your Judge. What you can do if you don’t like your Judge. Public Record – what not to attach to documents you file. How to follow your case on the web. What the Judge and Court System expects of you. Court Rules and how to follow them. Out of Court Settlement. Are you a candidate. Options on how to settle your case without going to Court – Mediation, Arbitration, Private Judging, Collaborative Process. Procedures. Costs. Yikes! Don’t Do That – Common Mistakes to Avoid …. More Saturday topics to come. Your requests and suggestions are welcome.
Our Sunday workshops will feature guest speaker: Speakers and topics now being finalized. Standby for further info.

We have also set goals to accomplish in 2022:
1. We are working to compile resources from our attendees and our professionals. If you have worked with someone you would recommend to others, let us know.
2. In our 6th year, we are now happy to have many Second Saturday Graduates, who have completed their divorce and are now helping our as Second Saturday Angels.
Our Second Saturday Family has developed and grown over the past 6 years. To those who have grown with us: Thank you for your kind words of appreciation. To those who are considering joining our Second Saturday Family: We welcome you with open arms. We will work hard to continue to learn how we can best be of service to our community. We look forward to a 2022 of personal progress. Hope to see you soon.
