One of the most important steps someone starting or going through a divorce can take is when they’re assembling their divorce support team of professionals – attorney, financial advisor, mediator or parenting coordinator. Divorcing clients often get so overwhelmed they don’t realize the team doesn’t have to stop there – they can also add a divorce coach, therapist, realtor, family members, support group – people who can help you get through the emotional part of the process in the most positive and beneficial way possible.

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.
