Divorce with Dignity is a network of divorce support professionals that was founded in Alameda in 1996 by Cindy Elwell. Divorce with Dignity is an alternative for couples wishing to divorce amicably and avoid the lengthy and expensive process of traditional divorce in which each party hires a lawyer and spends thousands of dollars. Over the years it has grown from a single office in Alameda to dozens of affiliates in California, Florida, Illinois and Washington. In addition to services related to divorce, the office also handles deeds, trusts, and conservatorships.
