Divorce Options™ of Northern Virginia, sponsored by Collaborative Professionals of Northern Virginia, is a low-cost public education program presented by local experts in separation and divorce. Each Workshop is led by an attorney, a financial specialist, and a licensed mental health professional. The mission of Divorce Options™ of Northern Virginia is to educate Virginia individuals and couples about the options they have when deciding how to approach separation and divorce. The Workshops cover the legal, financial, and emotional aspects of separation and divorce.
Divorce Options™ Workshops are for married or unmarried individuals or couples who are considering separation and/or divorce. The Workshops are also for people who are already engaged in the process of separating and/or divorcing. They are for persons in mixed-gender or same-gender relationships. At least one member of the couple should be a resident of Virginia.
You may attend a Divorce Options™ Workshop alone or as a couple.
