Ending your marriage may be one of the most time-consuming, detail-driven, draining, and confusing things you ever do.

Your divorce can touch just about every aspect of your life – everything from your health insurance to your son’s 8th birthday party. Fortunately, getting divorced is something that most of us do only once. The down-side to this one-time reality is that without prior experience divorcing people often fall into upheaval. If you find that you need more support and/or information than your neutral mediator can provide a Divorce Coach may be the right answer.

Your Divorce Coach will help YOU:

  • see the big picture and the hidden power dynamics
  • put together an interdisciplinary team of experts and advisors
  • create an easy-to-follow path through rough terrain
  • gather essential information
  • decide which divorce process is best for you
  • evaluate your day-to-day and long-term options
  • move through the process as smoothly as possible
  • avoid the mistakes divorcing people commonly make
  • use the cold hard facts about the financial and legal realities of divorce to achieve your best results
  • do the divorce math, get your finances in shape, and best spend your divorce dollars
  • save your sanity
  • avoid sabotaging or jeopardizing your future
  • protect your children from divorce’s detrimental effects
  • avoid becoming a victim of divorce PTSD
  • achieve an emotionally and financially successful divorce
  • find your best outcomes for every facet (parenting, financial, legal strategy, etc.) of your divorce
  • explore your prospects
  • define and refine your goals and the strategy you will use to reach them
  • organize your paperwork
  • access the documents, facts, and figures, you need
  • prevent costly mistakes
  • plan for rebuilding your life post-divorce, and moving forward to a healthy and happy future.

Your Divorce Coach can provide you with:

  • a safe, private, and inexpensive place to vent
  • support so that you can keep your friends, family members, children, and new significant other (and their emotional baggage) out of the mix.
  • an objective, thinking brain, when your emotions get the best of you
  • tools
  • compassion
  • a vision for your life post-divorce 

Over the last decade there has been some significant buzz about the process of divorce coaching. Here are some recent examples:

Ultimately, Divorce Coaches help their clients (1) evaluate day-to-day options and best outcomes regarding every aspect (parenting, financial, etc.) of their divorces, (2) explore their options for going through the divorce process including retaining attorneys, mediators, and/or other professionals, and (3) plan for rebuilding their lives post-divorce.

When looking for a divorce coach you want to make sure your coach is knowledgeable in all aspects of the divorce process. If you aren’t selective you could wind up with a divorce coach whose only experience is having been divorced. Divorce Coaches at The Divorce Coach Institute have all undergone an extensive Divorce-Education program in addition to Basic Coach Training.
