A divorce coach is not meant to replace legal counsel. Attorneys are necessary in order to represent the best interest of their clients and advocate for them in court. Attorneys work as experts in order to settle the business part of the divorce.
We as divorce coaches are there to keep you focused, calm and goal directed. Emotionally charged and misguided behavior by divorcing parties costs them money, more stress in the process, and ultimately prolongs the process of the divorce. We are skilled at helping our clients stay goal oriented, and providing effective strategies for dealing with spouses who may be acting unreasonably, erratic or overly emotional. Because of our experience with the process we know what has to happen and have good explanations and solid answers for our clients which eases the stress and allows them to take things one day at a time. Coaching is not therapy or counseling it is a solution oriented approach brought in to help manage specific situations.
In addition coaches and lawyers act as an interdisciplinary team encouraging mutual endeavors. But even if we have little direct contact with the attorney, coaching prepares the client to participate better in the legal process especially at highly emotional times.
Divorce is never easy. There are many underlying and complicated issues involved. We have the experience, compassion and expertise needed to help you through. Our services will provide you with the guidance and the skills necessary to navigate this situation with the least amount emotional trauma. We can help you save both time and money.
