The goal of The Divorce School is to provide – at no cost – expert guidance and peer support to all those who are thinking about getting a divorce, separated, or already divorced. The School was inspired by comments left by visitors on our company’s seven websites and social media pages. Their comments lead us to realize our visitors have a lot of questions and concerns that can only be answered by experts – but they have many other questions and concerns that would be better addressed by fellow divorcees who have “been there, and done that” and emerged from the experience with some hard-won wisdom. That’s why we have assembled a faculty of experts and divorcees for The Divorce School, and designed a curriculum that addresses a wide range of divorce-related topics.
