In Florida and other states, divorce expos are offering assistance to people struggling with issues related to the end of their marriages. Workshops on money management, single parenting, and other topics seek to assist expo attendees with life after saying goodbye to a spouse. Additionally, divorce expos are designed to connect the recently divorced or separated with community and other resources that may help ease the often difficult and emotional process.
According to one recent divorce expo attendee, Katie Kanney, attending events geared towards the newly divorced is helpful because friends and family are not always privy to the entire story following a split. Kanney stated she has spent almost one year dealing with the physical and emotional aftermath of ending her 15-year marriage. Although Kanney has reportedly dealt with many aspects of her divorce, she is still struggling with hurt feelings and other emotions.
According to expo organizers, divorce is a complex matter with a host of issues that many people simply do not consider until they are engaged in the process. Such issues include not only decreased self-esteem, but also re-entry into the workforce, dealing with a smaller budget, and co-parenting challenges. Events such as a divorce expo are reportedly held to spotlight many of those issues. Vendors including divorce coaches, financial planners, and counselors also reportedly offer their services at such events. According to David Morgan, an Illinois-based financial planner, many of those in the business of helping the newly divorced choose to do so because too often one spouse is left without much understanding of a former couple’s financial situation. Morgan also stated it was his goal to assist divorcees in making smart financial decisions.
