Welcome to The Guide to Good Divorce website.

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.

Ghandi-quoteThe 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.

At the seminar, attendees have access to experts on the law of divorce in Texas, divorce financial planning, life skills and physical and spiritual wellness.

In addition, women who come to the seminar will have the opportunity to meet and share with others facing the challenges of divorce, and start to build new communities of support.

Regardless of where you may be in the process of divorce, I invite you to sign up for our next seminar to learn some new life skills, share your experiences and receive valuable legal and financial information.

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.
