There are a ton of unknowns in a divorce, especially if you’ve never gone through it before. A divorce coach helps clients manage the process and prioritize their needs and boundaries throughout the divorce.
Initially, a divorce coach can lay out the different options that are available to you – Collaborative, Mediation, or Litigation and think through what you feel best fits your circumstances.
A divorce coach does not provide legal advice. They can help streamline your interactions with your attorney. Your divorce coach works with you as a thinking partner to focus on what you need to know and what questions you need to be answered. This is usually at a significantly lesser rate than your attorney. They can help you think through custody and parenting issues, employment and housing options, or whatever issues might be bubbling up when you’re in your own divorce story.
In the process a divorce coach can work to help you manage what needs to be done and avoid procrastination, hopefully toward a less costly, more efficient, and emotionally supported divorce. They can also help you look beyond the settlement of the divorce and assist you in shaping your decisions positively and proactively designed to support your life past the divorce, not just up to the day of your decree.
