I need a new Social Life

We hear it all the time.  You’re separated or divorced, and all your friends are still married.  Or you’ve moved to a different location. Or most of your old friends took sides with your ex.  Or you just need some single girlfriends (or guy friends) and aren’t quite ready to date yet.  The kids are with their other parent, and the house seems way too quiet – you’ve got to get out of the house! Here are some resources to help you connect with others and start a new Social Life.

  • Meetup.com – there are literally thousands of groups in the area where people who have similar interests get together (for real, face-to-face).  Go to Meetup.com and create a profile with a photo of yourself.  Look for groups that hold events you may be interested in – hiking, biking, music, wine tasting, singles group – whatever.  It’s expected that you’ll be showing up alone your first time, so don’t be shy.

I need a Job / New Career

Divorce is hard enough, but lots of people also need to change jobs or start a new career when going through divorce. Some need a part-time job to make ends meet, some need to go from part-time to full-time, others need to start a new career so they can financially survive after alimony stops.

  • Pennsylvania Commonwealth Workforce Development Service – PA CareerLink® Bucks County is a free service open to the general public, including but not exclusively for those collecting unemployment benefits in PA.  They provide free services including career coaching, resume updating, interview practice, workshops, and much more.  They also have an on-line job search site with jobs of all levels and types.

I need to see the legal status of my Divorce Action
