Aventura Family Mediator, Denise Tamir, Esq., and Aventura Life Transition Coach, Liz Becker, have been selected as presenters for a national divorce expo in Hallandale on October 6. The Divorce Expo (TDE Conference & Expo) is a national organization that presents exclusive one day events designed to educate men and women on how to navigate through the divorce process in order to move forward with their lives.  On the heels of a successful Divorce Expo in Chicago in August, TDE is coming to Hallandale to provide important educational workshops, networking opportunities, and a little socializing to divorcing couples in Dade and Broward Counties.

"I am thrilled to be making my second presentation for TDE after experiencing the vast amount of information provided at the expo in Chicago," said Liz Becker, a Certified Life Coach specializing in divorce and parenting. "Attendees get to meet a lot of different practitioners that can help them through divorce all at one event.  It's a one stop shop." She explained.  "Not only is the TDE and amazing event for people who are either contemplating, going through or have experienced divorce, it is also extremely beneficial for professionals in the divorce industry since there will be a track of sessions dedicated to the improvement of their businesses."

"I am excited to have this opportunity to spread the word about the benefits of divorce mediation to people that are at the beginning of their divorce journey," said Denise Tamir, an attorney since 1995, and Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil and Family Mediator.  "Most people still believe that the only way they can divorce is by hiring separate attorneys and declaring war.  There are so many supportive options available to couples today that they may not know about," Tamir explained, "and this expo gives them a chance to explore many options and fields at the same time."

As an experienced Life Transition Coach and Single mother, Becker combines her diverse life experience, NLP Training, and a firm belief that happy parents make happy kids, Her presentation, "Moving forward: Learn how to gain control and minimize the effects of divorce on you and your children," is designed to give parents concrete techniques to change their behavior and perspective so that they can better co-parent or single parent and use their time wisely to focus on their new beginnings.

A former litigator, Tamir now prefers helping people reach agreements amicably over the adversarial model of her former career and as President of The Divorce Mediation Center of South Florida, she specializes in guiding unrepresented couples through the confusing divorce process in an atmosphere of mutual respect and dignity. Her presentation "Do I need a Lawyer to get Divorced? -Achieving a "Fair Divorce" through pre-suit/pro-se Mediation," will explain how divorce mediation provides a cheaper and more peaceful way for couples to reach their own divorce agreement.
