Many women think of divorce as an end. Divorce is the end of your marriage, but a divorce can also be a fresh start. Remember those dreams you once had? Do you have new dreams? Your divorce can give you the opportunity to make those dreams a reality. Your San Francisco divorce attorney can help.
Do you want to go back to school? Finishing (or starting) your schooling can help you find a new career and put you on the path to financial independence. Your divorce attorney may be able to use your California spousal support agreement to help you finish your education.
Before you enroll in classes, here are some things to consider.
You may qualify for federal financial aid. Ask to schedule an appointment with a financial aid advisor at your college.
School takes time. Divorce also takes time. Consider how much time you will need for lawyer visits and court dates before you sign up for classes.
You don’t have to stick to a traditional schedule. More and more adults are going back to school. Many San Francisco colleges offer weekend and night classes. You may be able to schedule classes during your ex’s visitation times.
Online classes are also available. Taking an online class may be a good way to ease back into going to school.
Going back to school can help you become financially independent. It will also give you a sense of accomplishment and pride. If this is the right path for you, talk to your San Francisco divorce lawyer about how you can make your educational goals a reality.
