Monthly Divorce Seminars

Led by our experienced attorneys

If you are a woman who is considering divorce, or perhaps in the early stages of the divorce process, you need to attend this information-packed presentation.

Join other women like you to:

  • Explore the legal, financial and emotional support resources available during the divorce process.
  • Learn what to expect during a divorce and how to prepare for this challenge with greater confidence and understanding.
  • Discover the four ways to obtain a divorce: Litigation, Negotiation, Mediation and the Collaborative Team Model.
  • Listen to other women like you who are experiencing similar life changes.

Where can you find clear, unbiased, truthful answers to your divorce questions without paying huge legal fees up front?

If you’re a Virginia woman who is going through a divorce (or even just thinking about it), you need clear unbiased facts about the divorce process in Virginia before you make expensive mistakes. But, if you’re like many women going through divorce, your finances are likely stretched, and you are probably hesitant to meet with an attorney.

That’s why we offer low-cost monthly divorce seminars. Our monthly divorce seminar program has been providing Virginia women with the divorce facts they need for over 30 years, and offers in depth presentations on common divorce topics for significantly less than the cost of a one hour consultation with a moderately priced attorney.

During the seminar, you’ll have the opportunity to speak with one of our divorce attorneys experienced in handling divorce-related issues.

These are information-packed hour and a half seminars about the challenges of divorce for Virginia women that has been continuously offered for over 30 years by Hofheimer Family Law Firm.

By attending this important and supportive seminar, you will receive the answer to all these questions and many more.

  • What is the difference between fault, no fault, contested, and uncontested divorce – and why does it matter?
  • How legal separation in Virginia works.
  • How property is divided in Virginia, including the marital residence, retirement, bank accounts, and debt.
  • How Virginia decides custody and visitation cases – and alternatives to custody litigation.

All attendees receive a “Divorce Information Guidebook” with over 30 pages of divorce resources and information, legal definitions and a financial planning worksheet as well as a free copy of the book, “What Every Virginia Woman Should Know About Divorce.

  • What the grounds of divorce in Virginia are
  • The difference between fault and no fault divorce
  • How child support, custody, and visitation are determined
  • How property is divided in Virginia

I don’t feel quite so overwhelmed now. I know there are other women who feel isolated and powerless. This seminar was an enormous boost for me.
The question and answer period was excellent.
Lee Ann
All questions were answered and “simple” language was used instead of legal terms. I would absolutely recommend this seminar to other women!
Second Saturday is a great way to get started in the whole process. I went three different times before I made my appointment.
