by Houston Divorce Attorney Sam M. “Trey” Yates, III
Since 1986, I have had the professional and personal pleasure of working with many women as they face one of life’s greatest challenges – divorce.
At a time when many feel they have lost control over almost every aspect of their lives, financially, emotionally and spiritually, they are thrust into an unfamiliar legal maze and are called upon to make important, irreversible life changing decisions. The sense of security they once knew has been yanked out from underneath their feet as they face an overwhelmingly lonely journey ahead.
Over the years, I’ve observed that some women going through the transition known as divorce fare better than others. Those who see divorce as a catalyst to propel them into their next best life often emerge from the personal challenge of divorce stronger, wiser and in more control of their destinies than ever before.
Based on what these women have demonstrated to me, and what I know about the divorce process, I have organized and led a number of educational seminars encouraging women to see the divorce process with different eyes. The focus of the seminars is to assist them in collectively finding the tools or keys for using divorce as a means to an end — a better life.
Recently, I have taken this educational format to the next level and started The Guide to Good Divorce program. The program is designed to empower women to successfully navigate through the divorce process towards a fuller, healthier and happier life.
As mentioned above, the program focuses on Five Keys which I believe can unlock the door to a woman’s next best life following divorce. At our seminars, attendees have access to experts on the law of divorce in Texas, divorce financial planning, life skills and physical and spiritual wellness. In addition, attendees get to meet and share with other women who are also facing the challenges of divorce and start to build new communities of support.
Regardless of where women may be in the process of divorce, The Guide to Good Divorce seminar is a great place to gain information, guidance and support. I invite you to sign up for our next seminar on Saturday, February 11, from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Houstonian Hotel, Spa & Club to learn some new life skills, share your experiences and receive valuable legal and financial information and guidance.
As a special New Year’s offer, the first 50 registrants for this seminar attend free of charge! Just visit The Guide to Good Divorce website to register and for more details.
