Divorce statistics in America continue to be a bleak fact of life. Current high unemployment due to the recession and the stress that places on marriages has not helped.
"But," says family law attorney Amanda DuBois, "divorce does not have to be a war."
With 20 years of experience as a family law attorney, Amanda DuBois realizes she has an opportunity to really help families facing divorce.
"Divorce--like getting married or having a baby--is a process," stated Amanda, "and like any life-altering experience, divorce can be a positive life transition accomplished with integrity and grace. It is our goal to not only help women through their divorce, but make sure they have a positive life after divorce"
Whether you are for or against divorce, the statistics are not good: over 40% percent of marriages in America end in divorce. Divorce in America is a fact of life, but it no longer needs to be an emotional and financial disaster for couples and their families.
In order to change the way American women in particular think about divorce, Amanda DuBois has created a 17-part video series for women called Divorganize. Divorganize helps women understand the divorce process in a way that can reduce stress and improve long-term financial outcomes for women and their families.
"All women are gripped by internal panic and fear during the divorce process which leads to making bad and emotional decisions," stated Amanda. "It is our goal with Divorganize to provide the education and support that allow women to make smart divorce decisions that will enable them to land on their feet and have a positive future going forward in life after divorce. It is designed to enable women to take charge of their divorce, and not be a victim of divorce"
Divorganize is designed to teach the divorce process quickly and effectively. The video series addresses practical topics such as how to choose a divorce attorney, proper parenting during divorce, how to save money during divorce, child custody issues, property distribution in divorce, financial matters to consider, and the benefits of divorce mediation.
"In a nutshell, it is our desire to provide everything women must know and do concerning divorce for women," said Elizabeth Myhr, Project Manager for Divorganize.
Divorganize is affordable, and entirely web based in content delivery. Women who purchase the video series can go through the program wherever and whenever it is convenient for them to do so -- via a computer, a tablet such as an iPad or Kindle Fire, or on a smart phone.
"We understand the need for privacy some women may have when viewing this program," stated Elizabeth, "and that is why we have made this program accessible on any device from any location. Women can access it from home, or their local coffee shop, that's the beauty of it. It is our goal to provide women the education and support they need in the divorce process to alleviate their fears and insecurities as well as to provide them the knowledge they need concerning all the various aspects of divorce and their divorce rights in a divorce. Divorganize is about improving divorce outcomes for women and their children while maintaining personal, family and community integrity."
Divorganize is a 17-part video series created to help women quickly understand the divorce process. Divorganize can help women make sound financial and emotional decisions for themselves and their families. Divorganize is designed to help women maintain personal and community integrity while going through divorce.
