The Workshop

This workshop is designed to help women take the next step, no matter where they are in the process of untying the knot. Resources for Divorce deals with the legal, financial, family and personal issues of divorce in a logical, yet compassionate way.

With the guidance of trained professionals, workshop participants gain greater understanding of the confusing divorce process.

Divorce Workshops: You’ve Come to the Right Place


Resources for Divorce offers non-biased financial, emotional and legal advice from qualified local professionals, providing people with the knowledge, support, resources and trust that they need to survive the divorce process and move forward with confidence toward a new life.

The flagship San Diego workshop, started in 1989,  has helped over ten thousand women while raising nearly $400,000 for the San Diego community in the form of scholarships and educational programs.

Building on that success in San Diego, Resources for Divorce Divorce Workshops are now in locations around the country, helping to empower even more individuals and families.

Resources for Divorce was created by the non-profit Women’s Institute for Financial Education (, the nation’s longest-running non-profit devoted to female financial literacy, whose co-founders Candace Bahr and Ginita Wall are true champions for women in their quest for financial knowledge.

“Hey Lisa!!! I just wanted to say thank you for the Second Saturday workshops. I attended one in November 2016 and it was pivotal for me, in that, it gave me a lot of information which helped me to move forward with getting divorced, and doing it on MY TERMS. Since taking the workshop, moving forward with divorce, and coming out on the other end with my pride and dignity intact, I’ve often thought about how to get the word out about Second Saturday. I heard about it from a friend, but it was very happenstance. Divorce is still kind of a dirty word. There’s still quite a bit of stigma that surrounds it, especially in the early stages. It’s still kept so hush-hush. And then once it’s final, people don’t know what to say…should they give condolences or congratulations. I experienced all of this myself. The workshop and resources provided are invaluable. There were only three people (including myself) in the workshop I attended. I wish more women (and men) were aware of it and took it. Maybe the word is / has spread and numbers are up! If so, that’s fantastic, because it provides a great service to people who are at the beginning to middle stage of the divorce process.”
