UNIQUE WORKSHOPS THAT HELP WOMEN PREPARE FOR DIVORCE AND STARTING OVER.
“Divorce is rarely easy, yet navigating those rough waters can be easier with sufficient knowledge, preparation and support,” explains Trey Yates, a Houston based, board-certified family law attorney and founder of “The Guide to Good Divorce”. Throughout his years in family law, Trey realized that many of his female clients going through divorce could benefit from additional assistance beyond legal services. He wanted to help them make informed decisions about divorce and the divorce process while also addressing the transformative potential of this opportunity as a time of self-discovery and personal growth -- so he created a nonprofit that presents inexpensive, half-day seminars offering expert advice and tips on divorce financial planning, life skills, and physical and spiritual wellness. Sessions are led by Yates on the law of divorce in Texas, as well as by a certified divorce financial planner, a life skills coach, and other experts in the area of lifestyle and wellness. The seminars also include fun activities such as makeovers, fashion tips, and more. Says Trey, “I have witnessed many women draw strength, comfort and encouragement from our seminars and each other as they transition out of a marriage and into a new phase of their lives.” Yates has practiced family law in the greater Houston Metropolitan Area since 1986.
