Should You Consider a Divorce Coach?
The first business day of the month is considered National Divorce Day. For 2021, that day fell on January 4. So if you’re like many people, you may be considering ending your marriage. Maybe COVID-19 took its toll on your marriage. Maybe your spouse is struggling with an addiction. Perhaps infidelity or dishonesty is involved. Perhaps there are money issues.
In any case, you may be ready to divorce and move on from your marriage. But you may be stuck in a tough place financially. What if you can’t afford a lawyer, but you don’t want to do a DIY divorce? Is there something in between?
Many people opt for a divorce coach. An attorney does not often work as a divorce coach, although some do. A divorce coach can guide you through the divorce process to some degree, but they are not there to give you legal advice or represent you in court. However, if you can’t afford an attorney, they are the next best thing.
A divorce coach can help you in several ways. They can offer an unbiased opinion and serve as your support network. They can help you achieve your goals and keep you focused.
A divorce coach is good for helping clients through the emotional aspects of a divorce. While a lawyer knows the ins and outs of the legal process, they may not be as good as offering emotional support. A divorce coach, on the other hand, can help you deal with the relationship side of things, such as handling a difficult spouse.
Divorce coaches are cheaper than lawyers, which is the main reason why people have one. A divorce coach, unlike a lawyer, won’t bill you every time you have a question or need to send an email. They are not making phone calls, setting up court dates and talking to other lawyers, so the fees will be much less.
A divorce coach is a good option when you just don’t want to go through a divorce alone. Whether this is your first divorce or your fifth, it’s nice to have someone on your side. It may be hard to get support from family and friends, and with a divorce coach, you always have someone to talk to with questions or concerns. While hiring a divorce coach won’t be cheap, consider it an investment in your future. A divorce coach can make the process quick and easy, allowing you to move on.

While a divorce coach can be a good option if your funds are limited, they can’t give legal advice, which could hurt you in a divorce. Opt for legal counsel instead.
