The first thing to understand when you are facing divorce is that there are many ways to go about it. CPEB offers monthly seminars, called Divorce Options, on the second Saturday of each month, designed to help you understand the choices available to you, including the benefits and limitations of each dispute resolution method or model.

Our informative, in-depth Divorce Options program is presented by a team consisting of an experienced divorce lawyer, a financial advisor and a family counselor.

Time: The program runs from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM, on the second Saturday of each month.
Cost: The cost is  just $35 if you register in advance – and only $45 at the door. (It is free for mental health professionals).

The options for marital dissolution range from “do-it-yourself” divorce, to mediation, Collaborative Practice, or traditional litigation. The seminar is designed to help you understand the pros and cons of these different methods of dispute resolution, in order to intelligently decide what will work best in your situation, for you and your family. At a Divorce Options seminar, you  will also be provided with an overview of the divorce process generally, the effect of divorce on children, and information about some of the common legal, financial, psychological, and social issues of divorce. Divorce Options programs are also offered in other locations throughout the Bay Area.
