Divorce is hard on everyone and sometimes people just need a shoulder to lean on and a little advice. The founder of Divorce Cafe, Elif Ekin, started the cafe after going through a divorce. At the time of her divorce, she was unemployed, with no family and no extra money. She felt alone and had no idea where to turn or who to ask for help. She later learned that if she had spoken to a financial analyst she would have saved over $10,000 during her divorce. This is common amongst many stays at home moms who do not realize they have rights during a divorce. They are not aware of those rights and end up losing in the end. This makes starting over harder than it has to be. The Cafe aims to inform and heal anyone struggling with their home life.
Her experience inspired her to open up the cafe to help others receive divorce advice and healing through taking advantage of various services. Some services include massage therapy, legal advice, life coaching, and financial advice. Of course, there is also comfort food, coffee, and soup. The services rendered are by volunteers whose only reward is knowing they helped someone going through a difficult time. The cafe is open to all on the first Wednesday of every month. The goal is to empower and help people going through a divorce get through it and move on successfully in all aspects. It serves the public to heal and find reasonable solutions to their problems and not as a place to simply complain.
As the Divorcee Cafe has the best intentions and helps you think of solutions and heal on an emotional level this does not replace legal representation from an experienced Salt Lake City divorce attorney. Divorce is something that no one is prepared for especially after getting engaged. The first piece of advice that couples should heed is to establish a prenuptial agreement. This will help in the unfortunate circumstance of a divorce. As life progresses, things will change and the pre-nup may need to be updated. If it is not then at the time of divorce not everything will be covered. The pre-nup will however help establish the groundwork. Divorce is complicated and even the most precautious and organized couples will need a Salt Lake City divorce attorney to help move the divorce proceedings along.
