Divorce Education & Planning Package

"Healthy Divorce is A Possibility.” – Linda M. Perry


Divorce education is about understanding how the process works, your options and your basic rights. It also means knowing how to decide whether litigation, mediation or a collaborative divorce might be best for your circumstances. Too often, people who have gone through a divorce say "I wish I had understood the process better when I started."

My approach is simple – I help you understand the divorce process, your options, guide you to the right professionals and provide you with the information you need, so that you will know what questions to ask and where to get the answers. My objective is to give you a customized framework for your divorce situation that reduces stress and emotional turmoil, the time it takes to divorce and most importantly, overall cost.

While the advice I provide is not legal advice and will not replace any advice given by your lawyer, I will work in conjunction with your lawyer and other professionals to create a supportive network that achieves the best outcome for you.

Divorce Education and Planning services may include any of the following:

  • Education and Explanation of the Divorce Process
  • Explore the Various Dispute Resolution Options
  • Help Create Specific Goals for Divorce and Your Future
  • Identification of Necessary Financial Documents
  • Specific and Personalized Referrals
  • Preparing Children for Divorce
  • Review of Custody and Parenting Plans
  • Address Key Emotional Issues that Increase Time and Cost

Divorce Education and Planning can be done over the phone or in person. Every package includes the following:

  • One hour consultation
  • A copy of my book: Illinois Divorce Basics: Planning for Your Future
  • Three professional referrals (legal, financial, mental health or other)
  • Written summary of our consultation
  • Goal Setting Worksheet 
  • Financial Spreadsheets

I truly do believe that healthy divorce is a possibility if you invest in and take the time to plan. You took the steps to plan for your marriage – now it is time to plan for a new future.



What My Clients Have to Say About Divorce Education and Planning:

"Having Linda on my team through the time of the divorce was finagled was key to obtaining a successful outcome. Without her on my side, who knows where things would have ended up for me. Hiring Linda Perry was the best thing I did during my divorce process." Adam

Mediation Services

I offer mediation services in divorce cases on a limited basis and generally take cases on a referral basis. Most mediations last between 3 to 6 sessions, depending on the issues presented by the clients. Mediation sessions typically last about 3 hours per session. If you are interested in learning more about mediation services, all inquiries can be made by email to linda@lindamperry.com.
