What Is A Divorce Expo And How It Can Help People?

April 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 185

Divorce happens around the world. In the U.S., the rate is 50 percent based on current statistics. An international research on countries with the highest divorce rates, Belarus topped the list with a rate of 68 percent. Russia, Sweden, Latvia and Ukraine followed to complete the Top 5 list.

When couples split, what normally happens is they face uncertainties particularly on the part of the wife who may not be working at that time. Not all are able to find the right resources as well to proceed with the divorce process. Fortunately, there's this new event organized for the first time in Detroit Michigan aimed at helping ex-couples.

Ever heard of a divorce expo? Well, it may sound strange to many of you but there is really such an event as this. In New York City, there was this Start over Smart Divorce Expo that took place for the first time just this March 31 and April 1, 2012, on a weekend.

The goal of this event is to help couples who have decided to quit their marriage in managing the divorce process, move on with their lives and succeed in their respective fields. Among the co-founders is a family therapist, Francine Baras and her daughter Nicole Baras Feur who's a mediator.

According to the mother-daughter team, those who are going through the divorce process often face it alone. But, this does not have to be, they stressed. And this is the reason why they thought of organizing this expo to allow ex-spouses to come together and consult about their situations as well as learn from the experts available. The event is also a good opportunity for people going through divorce to get to know others in the same situation as theirs.

But other than the private one-on-one sessions with the experts and seminars that divorced people can attend at this event, there were perks offered for them. These include a massage, makeover, live radio interviews, book signing, tips for maintaining healthy skin and on dating after the divorce. The activity proved to be a one-stop shop for couples who have decided to quit their marriage.

What often happens when a husband and wife agree to end their relationship is they don't know where to find a lawyer who can help them in the divorce process. With the Divorce Expo, these people were provided with the right resources to make it easy for them to settle their issue and move on with their lives.

The seminars featured experts in different fields to help divorcees with whatever challenges they may be facing. Topics covered were family law, financial planning, coaching, personal health and wellness, finding a career, parenting, co-parenting as well as the emotional and physical well-being. A party was also held with a live band for the enjoyment of all attendees.

One of the organizers of this weekend event also pointed out that the Divorce Expo was a great opportunity to listen, learn and be inspired not only by the experts but by the other attendees as well.
