Divorce is an isolating and frustrating experience. That’s why it’s important to have the best divorce solicitors Leeds has to offer on your side; it’s also why you can benefit from the many post-divorce resources Leeds has to offer.
Below is a brief list of support groups, advice centres and more that you might benefit from, compiled by our Leeds lawyers. If you need further help, feel free to contact us.
The Meetup group page states that Divorce Club Leeds ‘is hosted by two people who have gone through a divorce and come through the other side. Whether you are a man or woman, whether you want practical advice or just go out for the first time as a singleton, you are welcome to join us for a pint or two and a chat, a laugh and a moan.’
Meetup in general is a useful site for making new friends, for finding support groups, and for exploring hobbies new or old.
Together Friends is a site through which women can make friends. Their site can help you to make new friends by putting you in touch with like-minded women who share the same interests and live in the same area.
