Jan 30, 2013, 06:18 ET from Massachusetts Family Law Group

NORWOOD, Mass., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading divorce and family law attorneys from the Massachusetts Family Law Group will conduct a series of two-hour seminars teaching men and women how to properly plan and prepare for the "harsh reality of divorce." Each seminar will give participants a roadmap of the divorce process and focus on the main issues in a typical divorce case, such as child custody and parenting plans, child support and alimony, property division, and the allocation of debt. With over 100 years of combined experience in family law amongst the attorneys at the law firm, the group will serve as knowledgeable sources of guidance for participants.

"January and February are two of the busiest months for filing new divorces each year. We want to show people how to avoid the most common mistakes, survive the process, and emerge in the best shape possible," said Irwin M. Pollack, Founder and Lead Attorney of the firm.

Managing Attorney David L. Callahan insists, "None of our employees or attorneys will be soliciting legal work at the seminars. Our sole purpose is to educate men and women on how to be prepared in the event of a future divorce." Pollack and Callahan will present five seminars, at several different locations and at different times, to allow those who are interested more flexibility in attendance.

The first seminar will be on Saturday, February 2, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon at the Springfield Marriott. The second seminar will be held Monday, February 4th at the Worcester Hilton Inn and Gardens from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The third seminar will be at the Burlington Marriott on Wednesday, February 6th from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Seminars will also be held on Thursday, February 7th, from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 noon at the Quincy Marriott, and from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Courtyard Marriott in Norwood.

Pollack and Callahan both emphasize how proper strategizing and planning increases the likelihood of a successful divorce outcome. "Just as a smart homeowner takes out different types of home insurance to protect himself or herself in the event of a natural disaster, we plan on seeing some attendees who are savvy enough to protect themselves 'just in case' a future divorce were to occur," Pollack says. In such an event, "the person who attends our seminar should be less likely to be sent scrambling into a panic."

Attendance at the seminar is free, pre-registration is not required, and each participant will receive a free workbook.
