"When I first separated, it was horrible! I didn’t know where to turn, who to talk to and how to move forward. Along with my self esteem, my finances were devastated and my credit was severely damaged. I was seeing a lot of my friends going through the same as me and yet there was very little help available. What shocked me was that there was really no one place to seek out help for ALL of the issues I was facing!!”

“The Starting Over Show” will offer information on coping with stress, dealing with children and legalities and advice on various issues such as finances, credit counselling and property issues. It will be held at the Allandale Community Centre in Barrie Ontario on Saturday Nov 5th and Sunday Nov 6th 2011.

“Divorce and Separation is not just about the obvious legal documents and child custody issues,” says Carol Matthews, event coordinator, but it is also about financial issues, coordinating the move, maintaining your credit, and ultimately reinventing yourself as a single person again.”

According to Stats Canada almost 80,000 Canadian couples divorce each year, as well as many thousands of co-habiting couples. People are needing to extricate themselves from joint finances, real estate, investments and lives.

Divorce is one of the top contributors to Bankruptcy, credit damage and stress induced health issues. The Starting Over Show will host hourly Seminars addressing such issues. “Often people who are separating or divorcing think they need a lawyer, but they don’t think about the need for a home appraiser, tax planner, moving company, realtor etc.,” says Ms. Matthews. “The goal of the fair is to bring together all kinds of professionals and services that people WILL need when they are facing a divorce or separation,”

“It’s the first-time such a forum has been held in Ontario,” said Darren Gingras, President of Canadian Separation Services, a sponsor of The Starting Over Show. "We are most certainly not promoting divorce or separation, instead we recognize that Divorce and Separation is a very stressful period in individual’s lives and we are making the professional services and options available to individuals in one location.” "It is about bringing together experts who will help people get through a break-up in the best way possible."

The Starting Over Show will be held Sat Nov 5th and Sunday Nov 6th at the Allandale Community Centre, 190 Bayview Avenue in Barrie ON. Show hours are 10am to 6pm both days. Entrance to the Expo and seminars is $20.00 at the door.
