Divorce is rarely going to be a pleasant experience for those involved. While every state/country has its own divorce laws, there are some general concepts of the process that will likely apply. One of the statements that holds true no matter where or when a divorce takes place is that a contested divorce will cost you more. More time, more money, more familial stress, more emotional trauma …
Not every divorce is considered a contested divorce – there are amicable, no-fault divorces, even though that might seem like an oxymoron. A contested divorce is one in which the couple hasn’t resolved their differences prior to filing for divorce and may include issues like child custody, spousal support, division of property, etc.
The key to diminishing the costs of a contested divorce is to reach a settlement as soon as possible, and this is where a divorce coach can help. The earlier in the process you can bring in your divorce coach, the better chance the client has of finding and speaking their voice on what they want out of the proceedings and why they want it.
A divorce coach helps navigate through the emotional element of the process and allows their client to focus in on their opportunities, their future, and can make the emotionally overwhelming and daunting task of ploughing through the divorce process smoother and more manageable. Knowing what to expect in the divorce process helps not only manage expectations, it also diminishes anxiety, and saves time and money in the long run.
