Ask a Top Divorce Attorney Anything!
Always one of our most popular speakers, high conflict divorce attorney, and family law professor, Steve Marcus has invited us to his offices in Valencia! Steve will be candid and open -- answering all of your most pressing questions! This is a co-ed event. Feel free to bring a friend! Steve Marcus (, Esq. devotes his practice exclusively to family law and defense of family owned businesses. His niche-market firm handles only high-conflict, trial-bound cases. His current practice focuses on issues of child support, spousal support, child custody, legal separation, attorney’s fees, division of property, valuation of complex business interests, enforcement of Court orders from inception of the case to post-judgment litigation. He has well-earned a reputation as a hard-nosed litigator that will not tolerate bullying or abuse by the opposing party directed at his clients. Now in his 25th year of handling these high-conflict matters, he long ago recognized the pattern of undercurrents and insecurities that drive the continuation of bullying from the marriage into the divorce litigation setting.

    What we're about

    Our Group for Women in Transition

    Do you cringe when you hear the word "divorce"? Does it sound like failure or worse yet a huge fight? Would you like to exit your marriage with dignity and compassion? Then we invite you to join us in Getting Unmarried™, and help us change the landscape of divorce.

    Our purpose is to create community, provide a place of support, and present an opportunity to learn from others in a nurturing environment. Together we will discover how to minimize the fighting and upheaval, and maximize the well-being and the considered actions.

    This is a group for anyone who wants to divorce differently -- whether you are thinking about ending your marriage, in the process of, or transitioning to life after the split. Our goal is to provide a supportive environment that pulls us all forward, and changes the concept of divorce for the better.

    We will meet twice a month to address the group's concerns, explore options, share knowledge in the form of a short talk, reflect, and leave with some positive action steps, and inspirational wisdom.

    Join this group so you can meet other people going through divorce in a thoughtful and conscious manner. You will find that you are not alone, and you will be inspired to move through this process with hope and dignity.
