This Month’s Topic – How to Choose the Right Attorney for YOU

Join other single parents for encouragement and connection! This month, we’re going to change things up a little bit.  We want to hear your stories about how the legal process has been for you.  Was it easy or hard?  Fairly inexpensive, or ridiculously pricey?  Did you work with an attorney that you like, or did you feel that they did not look out for your best interests?

Let’s have a discussion and learn from each other!  Our Estate Planning Attorney, Lisa Sharp, will be with us to help answer some questions.  She used to be a Family Law Attorney, and she has a lot of great information.

This month’s Single Side UP! meeting is held at Chase Oaks Family Center.  Childcare is provided onsite as space is available for single parents attending the meeting.  REGISTRATION for childcare starts at 12:01am on the first of each month!  Childcare pre-registration is REQUIRED to ensure space for your child.
