Welcome to The Guide to Good Divorce℠

My name is Trey Yates. I am a Board Certified Family Law Attorney by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization who has been practicing in the area of divorce and related family law matters since 1986.

Over the years, I have had the professional and personal pleasure of working with many women as they face one of life’s greatest challenges – divorce.

At a time when many feel they have lost control over almost every aspect of their lives, financial, emotional, and spiritual, they are thrust into an unfamiliar legal maze and are called upon to make important, irreversible life-changing decisions.

The sense of security that was known has been yanked out from beneath their feet and the loneliness of the journey can be overwhelming. Some women going through the transition known as divorce fare better than others. Those that see divorce as a catalyst to propel them into their next best life can emerge from the personal challenge of divorce stronger, wiser, and in more control of their destinies than ever before.

Over the years, I have organized and led an educational seminar for women who are facing divorce. The focus of the seminars is to assist them in collectively finding the tools, or keys as it were, for using divorce as a means to an end — a better life.

The Guide to Good Divorce is such a program. It is designed to empower women to successfully navigate through divorce toward a fuller, healthier, and happier life.

The program focuses on Five Keys I believe can unlock the door to a woman’s next best life following divorce.

Remember the story of the butterfly. The butterfly emerges beautiful, graceful, now endowed with wings, and no longer crawling around on the forest floor as a caterpillar. The butterfly is now soaring above the trees, above the forest itself – free, unrestricted and fulfilled as her own true self.

What was discomfort for the humble caterpillar was a divine discontent – the need for a bigger, finer and more interesting life. Her instinct told her that where there is true desire, there must be fulfillment.

The Program

Sam M. (Trey) Yates, III, a board certified family law attorney by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, has guided women through the trials and tribulations of divorce since 1986. He created The Guide to Good Divorce to empower women, of all ages, with the information and resources they need to make informed decisions during this emotionally turbulent time.

Over the years, I came to realize that women going through divorce could benefit from a wide range of expert advice and counsel throughout the divorce process. I created this program to be a source of encouragement, hope, strength, and community for these women as they transition out of marriage and into the next phase of their lives.”

How This Program Is Unique

The program is based on the philosophy that while divorce is rarely easy, it can be an opportunity for self-discovery and personal growth. It is Trey’s belief that the secret is learning to successfully navigate the divorce process. The Guide to Good Divorce program is designed to help women at all stages of the divorce process. At the heart of the program is guidance from uniquely qualified experts on Texas divorce laws, financial planning, life skills and wellness. The Guide to Good Divorce also provides opportunities for women facing divorce to network and connect with each other.
