Divorce Expo Debuts June 25 Offers Long Islanders One-Stop Divorce Resource

June 10, 2009 - Port Washington NY - Created in response to the increased demand for guidance and information pertaining to all phases of divorce, the Long Island Divorce Expo will be held on Thursday, June 25, 2009 at the Harbor Links Golf Club in Port Washington, NY from 7:00-10:00pm. It promises to be an insightful and informative event addressing the legal, social and emotional issues impacting individuals before, during, and after divorce.

According to 2007 New York State Department of Health data, there were 54,679 divorces in New York State, of which 2,774 were in Nassau County and 3,440 in Suffolk County. As a result of the work encountered at his Long Island law firm on a daily basis, David Mejias, an attorney at Mejias, Milgrim & Alvarado, P.C., developed the idea of the Divorce Expo to address the issues facing those who are contemplating divorce, working through a divorce, or starting over after divorce. The Divorce Expo will provide information, support, and guidance from the event sponsors and the participating exhibitors.

"We are one of the leading divorce firms on Long Island," said Mejias. "We have seen first hand how little people know about their rights in a divorce matter. Very often this leads to staying in a dysfunctional relationship unnecessarily. In addition, as people move on with their lives they are looking for ways to improve their lives and be happy."

The Divorce Expo will offer insight into the legal rights pertaining to divorce and family law plus will offer information on related issues, including finance, personal growth, career counseling, dating, spirituality, networking, and more. The event will also offer a great lineup of speakers. The presenters, all experts in their field, will offer reassurance and practical advice on a variety of topics. One of the featured presenters at the seminars is Dr. Logan Levkoff, a highly sought-after speaker in the field of sexuality, parenting, and women's health. Dr. Levkoff has appeared on Good Morning America and has been featured in The New York Times, Newsweek, The Daily News, and other mass media outlets.

The Expo's non-profit partner is the Nassau Coalition Against Domestic Violence. This organization offers information and services related to domestic violence, violence in dating relationships, abuse of the elderly, children who witness family violence and sexual assault. Agency representatives will be present at the Expo to answer questions and provide further assistance for all who are interested.
