Top Reasons You Should Consider Divorce Coaching

Latest News

What is Divorce Coaching?

A divorce can be one of the most challenging chapters of any person’s life. Not only is there the complicated divorce legal process, but there is the emotional toll that divorces take on those involved. And the voice can be damaging to the two spouses but also to all other family members and relatives closely linked to the divorcing couple. While it is highly recommended to retain professional legal counsel from experienced divorce attorneys when going through a California divorce, you may need additional assistance that goes beyond the duties of a divorce lawyer. It may be time to consider a divorce coach.

A divorce coach, like any other type of coach, is there to support you while you go through a difficult process. They can help provide strategy, develop your techniques, remind you of your rights and responsibilities, and help you establish and meet your goals.

The goal of a good divorce coach is to help a divorcing spouse set achievable goals in their divorce case and do so with a sense of optimism for the life that will follow divorce. Our legal practice is experienced in divorce coaching, and we would be proud to lend you legal guidance and emotional support through your divorce case. To learn more about divorce coaching and the services we provide, please contact our Campbell, California law office today.

Sometimes people do not need full representation and indeed choose divorce coaching with a licensed attorney so they can get legal questions answers at the same time.

What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Divorce Coach?

Working with a divorce coach can help a divorcing spouse through any stage of the divorce process. There are tremendous benefits to working with divorce coaches as you go through this tremendously challenging and ultimately life-altering event.

Do Divorce Coaches Help You Develop a Plan for Divorce Proceedings?

Going through a divorce can be overwhelming. There are many important steps to take, documents to file, courtroom appearances to make, and family matters to contend with. A California divorce coach can help you establish a game plan for how to proceed. As your divorce coaches, we will help you keep your goals in sight, organize your documents, take you through each step of the divorce proceedings, and help you bring your divorce case to the most satisfactory conclusion possible.

Can Divorce Coaching Reduce Conflict?

Divorces tend to be incredibly emotional. And when we are emotional, we don’t always speak or act in our best interests. A divorce coach can help you process your emotions and learn coping skills as you go through the divorce proceedings. This will help ensure that courtroom appearances do not devolve into emotional conflicts and name-calling as the emotions get the better of us.

Reducing conflict in your California divorce case helps you avoid some of the more traumatic aspects of going through a divorce. Work with experienced divorce coaches to get in better control of your emotions while in divorce proceedings and negotiations.

Will Divorce Coaching Help You Create a Parenting Plan?

Divorces can be hard, especially when there are children involved. When you have minor children, concerns about child support, child custody, and visitation rights are likely on your mind. In ideal circumstances, you and your ex-partner will decide to share parenting responsibilities. Any co-parenting will require a thorough parenting plan agreement. Divorce coaches can help you learn co-parenting communication skills as you draft and review your parenting plan agreement.

Can Divorce Coaching Help with Collaboration?

When feelings are hurt, it is not unusual for one or both parties to act out negatively against the other. Divorce coaching can help those going through a high-conflict divorce by teaching them emotional regulation, coping skills, and collaborative negotiation techniques.

Do Divorce Coaches Provide Emotional Support?

Among the most important reasons to consider divorce coaching is the emotional support that experienced divorce coaches provide. The divorce process can be draining for you, your spouse, and your family members. These heightened emotions can negatively impact your case and how you appear before a judge factors into going through a divorce. A divorce coach provides their clients with a safe space and undivided attention to see to their emotional needs and well-being.

Do You Need a Divorce Coach?

How do you know if you need divorce coaching? Ultimately, the need for divorce coaches should be decided on a case-by-case basis. If you are going through an amicable divorce with little to no conflict, it could be that you do not need the help of a divorce coach. However, for those going through complicated divorces and high-conflict divorces, divorce coaching may be highly recommended.

If you are feeling any of the following, you may benefit from divorce coaching:

  • The thought of divorce or seeing your spouse in a courtroom setting paralyzes you with fear.
  • You are frozen by indecision.
  • You don’t know how to present yourself as a good parent in divorce court.
  • You don’t understand much about your estate, assets, or finances.
  • You aren’t making the right decisions for you and your dependents.
  • You aren’t thinking clearly when it comes to your divorce.
  • You have no idea what life looks like after divorce.
  • Your confidence and self-esteem are at an all-time low since beginning your divorce.
  • You’re incredibly angry, and your anger is clouding your judgment.
  • You’re unfamiliar with the divorce legal process and don’t know where to begin or what comes next.
