Resources I needed

The Women's Resource Center helped me during a very difficult time of my life as well as my children's. They provided the compassion, support, and resources I needed to help myself and my family.

Brenda, WRC client
Legal Services at the WRCThe Women's Resource Center offers a variety of free or low-cost family law-related programs to help women in need of guidance for issues pertaining to divorce, child support, custody and related topics.

Divorce Resource Event

September 27th, Register Here:

Our signature Divorce Resource Events are an essential experience for anyone navigating a divorce.

Each Divorce Resource Event is sponsored by a panel of experts who are available that evening to answer questions and guide you in building your full "divorce team." Experts may include a therapist, a divorce mediator, an accountant, a health insurance broker, a mortgage broker, an estate attorney, and more.

Paula Borradaile, family law attorney, and Tim Hewitt, financial advisor with the Wiley Group, will present an overview of the legal and financial implications of divorce (including child support and custody procedures), and will answer your questions on-site.

Next Divorce Resource Events: September 27 and November 2017 (date and location for November TBD).
