Nationally Acclaimed Divorce Workshop Launching Locally

Divorce Support Services are provided by Sansiveri’s affiliate SKWealth Management, LLC. SKWealth will be participating in the local Second Saturday Workshops.

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”

March 14th at the LeFoyer Club, 151 Fountain St., Pawtucket, RI: 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, we have modeled the Providence Second Saturday Divorce Workshop after the game-changing original.

The Second Saturday Divorce Workshop will debut at the LeFoyer Club on March 14th, 2015.  Similar to Bahr and Wall’s original workshop, our 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.

SKNOW LoSays Cheryl Ethier about Second Saturday, “Second Saturday deals with the legal, financial, family and personal issues of divorce in a logical, yet compassionate way. With the guidance of trained professionals, you will gain greater understanding of the confusing divorce process.  The workshop is taught by a family law attorney, a financial professional and a therapist and will provide you with knowledge and resources that you need to inform, prepare and protect you and your family. Divorce is not easy, and we are proud to affiliate with WIFE.org to provide this Second Saturday workshop.”

The March 14th Divorce Workshop will be held at the LeFoyer Club, 151 Fountain St., Pawtucket, RI from 9 am-12:00 pm, with registration beginning at 8:30 am. Registration is available [here]. For more information, call 401-752-0586.

Cheryl Dugas Ethier, CDFA™ will facilitate the workshop and discuss the financial aspects of divorce. Rui Alves, Esquire will discuss the legal issues surrounding divorce and Pamela Lowell, MSW, LICSW will discuss the emotional complexities of dissolving a marriage.

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.
