The attorneys are there to handle the legal aspects of the case, the financial advisor focuses on finance … but there’s often a gap for the client as to how to get organized, get all of the information together, and how to present it to the professionals in a way that saves the client time and money and allows the professionals to focus on what they do best – the legal or financial aspects of the divorce.
Adding in a CDC Certified Divorce Coach® at the beginning of the process can help clients move past the overwhelm and begin to think about the actual divorce process – what is most important to them as they consider recommendations on how to divide the assets and share in the co-parenting. A divorce coach can also help divorce clients to focus forward and navigate through all of the hazards on the road through the entire divorce transition – from wandering in the dark at the beginning to creating new ways of relating to everything and everyone.
Every divorce is as uniquely different as the persons involved – it may have been a short or a long-term marriage, there may not be any joint assets or a complex portfolio of investments, properties and debts, or perhaps there are no children but a collection of prized pets … whatever the situation you are going to want people on your side who can help you transition from married to divorced, and all that that entails.
A CDC Certified Divorce Coach® helps their clients determine for themselves what is working and what is not to help their client find a way beyond the remnants of the old life to pick up the best pieces and begin to find their own path forward. In all of these moments, a sounding board and thinking partner is invaluable – on either side and all around the actual process of divorce and well beyond.
Having a support system in place can make the difference between being stuck in a negative emotional state for decades to working through the emotional, family, and financial stress relatively quickly and setting up a healing and positive foundation for your post-divorce life.
