Divorce Support Groups

By: PK Jordan

During divorce, you should not have to face it alone.  There are many resources out there concerning divorce support.   Here is a group called Divorce Care.  The group has been around for 20+ years and there are over 16,000 locations that teach on Divorce Care worldwide.  http://www.divorcecare.org/  The curriculum is aimed to help you heal right where you are at.  The group is not looking for perfect people.  What a relief!

Below are the topic descriptions for Divorce Care as follows:

  • What’s happening to me?
  • The Road to healing/finding help
  • Facing my anger
  • Facing my loneliness
  • What does the owner’s manual say?
  • New relationships
  • Financial survival
  • Kid care
  • Single sexuality
  • Forgiveness
  • Reconciliation
  • Moving on, growing closer to God

At Divorce Care you are not expected to share.  You are asked to commit to three weeks minimum.  You deserve to heal and be a better you.  If you have any questions regarding the group, please contact www.DivorceCare.org or call your mediator Pk Jordan at 480-788-4187 for additional information.

Who qualifies for spousal maintenance/alimony?

Who qualifies for spousal maintenance/alimony?

By: PK Jordan

 

Divorce is on the horizon.  You have many concerns running through your mind.  You were provided for over the years, but now you’re facing new changes in your life.  Over the years, you have been a stay-at-home Mom or have very little job experience.    Nobody ever plans for divorce.  The reality is how are you going to live on your own and pay your bills???   Mediation can help you explore those options.  Below are some areas that you may qualify for spousal maintenance/alimony:

Is your education obsolete?

  • Have you been out of the work force for a substantial amount of time?
  • Was your job a stay-at-home mom for a long period of time?
  • Do you have a chronic health condition that limits you for working outside the home?
  • Do you have a special needs child that needs 24 hour care?
  • Medical insurance is too expensive to get on your own due to medical needs?
  • Where you married for a long time?
  • Did you participate in building a business with your spouse?

Keep in mind every State has their own criteria on who qualifies for spousal maintenance/alimony.  The items of qualifications need to be verified with the State’s Law.  The areas of possible qualifications are only provided for informational purposes.  This article is not invented as legal advice or determination.   Each case is unique and needs may vary from family to family.
