Individual Information Sessions
Because we understand that every situation is unique, we offer confidential one-on-one private sessions for women. We'll talk about where you are in the decision process (not sure, just thinking, preparing or ready to move ahead) and factors to consider. In a supportive environment we will discuss what to expect, what your rights are, how to hire professionals, how to look at your family's finances and custody issues in divorce.
Contact us for more information.

Workshops and Seminars
You have questions. Or maybe you haven't yet thought of all the questions you should ask. Either way, we can help. We schedule daytime, evening and weekend workshops for your convenience.
Contact us for more information.

  • Divorce University, held in the spring and fall, is a full day event where you'll hear from judges, attorneys and mediators, therapists and family counselors, financial planners, career counselors and women who've survived the process and moved on to independent lives. View a sample schedule of events.
  • Half-Day Seminars feature panel presentations focusing on legal and financial matters, as well as the emotional stress and loneliness that's often associated with divorce.
  • Evening Workshops are devoted to single topics such as the divorce process and what to expect, coping with the impact of infidelity, the do's and don'ts of successful co-parenting, and financial security in a divorce.

Partial scholarship assistance is available.

Support Groups
Sharing reactions with other women who are in similar circumstances can be an empowering experience. The Lilac Tree offers different groups to help women who are divorcing deal with anger, loss and grieving, parenting problems, relationship issues, financial concerns, and ways to move on. These are 8-week sessions that meet once a week.
Contact us for more information.

Free Referrals
Finding the right professionals can be daunting. We can help, with free referrals to professionals in our registry. Our attorney panel, for instance, consists of attorneys who focus on women's issues. We can also guide you to mediators, financial planners, certified divorce planners and CPAs, therapists, career counselors and social service agencies.
