Tampa Divorce Lawyer Sees Good in Divorce Expo

Brandon, FL (Law Firm Newswire) April 27, 2012 - A first of its kind divorce expo was held in New York City at the beginning of April with speakers and exhibitors ranging from stylists to counselors to lawyers.

The expo was held over the course of two days at New York’s Metropolitan Pavilion.

The expo was called Start Over Smart: A Modern Divorce Expo. It included panel discussions, keynote speakers, socials and small group discussions, according to the expo’s website.

“An expo is a great way to help people going through a divorce feel like they are not alone in this often-painful process,” said Tampa divorce lawyer Joshua Law. “An opportunity to interact with professional service providers that specialize in helping people through the divorce process is one that should not be overlooked.”

Keynote speakers covered issues like finances and new hairstyles. Seminars ranged from co-parenting issues and mediation to dating and job searches.

“Divorce can make people feel alienated from their friends a family sometimes,” law said. “I think a newly divorced person could have a remarkable experience attending an expo that focuses on all of the issues that person is facing. I can see a great advantage to learning about best practices in co-parenting and hearing first hand what kind of damage can be done emotionally if the legal issues are not handled correctly.”

One panel discussion and one seminar focused specifically on helping men get through their emotional experiences in divorce. A panel talked about the nuts and bolts of how to move on and the seminar was about how to be a great single dad.

“I hope to see this kind of thing expand,” Law said. “I can imagine people from every walk of life could benefit from an expo like this.”

  • Woman’s handwritten note insufficient to revoke will
    The heirs of a deceased New York woman received an object lesson in the importance of taking proper, legally enforceable action when altering a will. Some years before Patricia Powers died, she apparently wished to revoke her existing will entirely, and attempted to do so by writing a note to that effect on the will’s […]
  • Chapter 13 can help those saddled with student loan debt
    A recent story in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette highlights an increasingly common strategy for dealing with unmanageable student loan debt: Chapter 13 bankruptcy. If you have student loans, you may already be aware that those debts cannot be discharged under Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation except in very limited cases. Under Chapter 13 reorganization, however, debtors agree […]
