A Divorce Fair — Good or Bad Idea?

Posted by Richard Price | Feb 11, 2010 | 0 Comments

 

A recent post in the Ontario Family Law Blog discussed how there had recently been a “Divorce Fair” in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. It was like a lot of trade shows with a variety of exhibitors and presentations, but they all related to divorce.

It sounded like an interesting idea that potentially could help people considering or facing divorce or possibly recovering from a divorce. I wonder how such a Fair would be received around here. If we had a Divorce Fair in Tarrant County, we could include such things as:

  • Information on alternatives, such as Collaborative Law and mediation.
  • Information about how traditional litigation works.
  • Sources of information so people can search for information they are interested in.
  • Tips for how to find and choose an attorney.
  • How to benefit from using a financial professional in a divorce.
  • How to benefit from working with a counselor.
  • Approaches for preparing parenting plans.
  • What Tarrant County courts expect from parties to a divorce.
  • What programs Tarrant County provides to assist divorcing parties.

I suspect that many people would be reluctant to attend a Divorce Fair. It's just not as enjoyable as a bridal fair or even a boat show. Some people wouldn't want others to know that they were thinking about a divorce, so they wouldn't want to appear in public at a Divorce Fair.

But, I'm curious:

  • What do you think about the idea of having such a fair?
  • Do you think very many people would attend?
  • Would you be interested in attending?

Anonymous answers are fine, but I would like to know how this would be received. Please share your opinions.
