Nationally Acclaimed Second Saturday Divorce Workshop Launching JUNE 2016 in Albany
Inspired by the Women’s Institute for Financial Education (WIFE.org), Local Financial Experts, Attorneys and Divorce Therapists Unite in Helping Women Navigate the Challenges of “Untying the Knot”
When WIFE.org co-founders and KPBS Local Heroes Candace Bahr and Ginita Wall founded “Second Saturday Divorce Workshops” through their non-profit 25 years ago, they never imagined that they would be offering support to tens of thousands of women as they struggled with the devastating process of divorce. Second Saturday Divorce Workshops have cropped up around the country, and with over 50% of marriages ending in divorce, it is clear that more help is needed.
In this same spirit, and with permission from WIFE.org, JEAN M. MAHSERJIAN, ESQ. has modeled the ALBANY/ Mohawk Region Second Saturday Divorce Workshop after the game-changing original.
The Second Saturday Divorce Workshop will debut at the Community Room, Hannaford Market, 900 Central Avenue, Albany, NY 12206 on June 11, 2016 at 8:30 AM. Similar to Bahr and Wall’s original workshop, the ALBANY- Mohawk Region Second Saturday workshop will address the legal, financial, family and personal issues of divorce in a logical, yet compassionate way. With the guidance of trained professionals, participants will gain greater understanding of the confusing divorce process in a way that can often save them tens of thousands of dollars and may help them avoid going to court.
JEAN M. MAHSERJIAN, ESQ: “Divorce is not easy, and we are proud to affiliate with WIFE.org to provide this Second Saturday workshop. It is our hope that people attending the workshop will decide to work on their marriages and keep their families intact rather than go through the rigors of divorce. But regardless, Second Saturday provides a great opportunity for women to acquire non-biased, straightforward information and options to help them focus on what they need to do legally and financially through difficult times, and hopefully save a whole lot of time, grief and money.”
The June 11, 2016 Divorce Workshop will be held at the Community Room, Hannaford Market, 900 Central Avenue, Albany, NY 12206 from 8:30 – 12:30, with registration beginning at 8:00 a.m. The fee of $25 is payable at the door, and preregistration is available online at https://www.jeanmahserjian.com/second-saturday-divorce-workshop-registration/.
For more information, call (518) 348-4232.
Presenters at the June 11, 2016 Second Saturday Workshop will include a divorce attorney, a divorce mediator, a real estate appraiser, a therapist, and an investment advisor.
The Second Saturday Divorce Workshop program was founded in 1989 by the non-profit WIFE.org, the Women’s Institute for Financial Education. Second Saturday has helped thousands of individuals navigate the divorce process, and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships and programs to help women become financially independent.
