#1 Divorce Workshop to Start or Respond to a Case:

After the overview is completed, we can run child support calculations, review your legal papers and answer general questions.  We will gladly give neutral information.  The Workshop is a group session so you must arrive on time.  You do not need an appointment to attend the workshop, however space is limited so we may need to reschedule you.  No children are allowed.
 
If you have substantial assets or debts and/or serious disagreements about child custody or visitation issues you should seek the advice of an attorney before you attempt to proceed on your own.
