What is a Divorce Coach? Do I need one?

Divorce is overwhelming in the best of circumstances. Imagine if you could have a personal assistant to guide you through the process. The divorce coach is a coach who specializes in divorce. They are familiar with the legal process and can help you navigate it while you manage everything else. A great coach can help you prioritize your needs and guide you through the process of divorcing.

Coaching divorce is a relatively new concept. This is a new concept that has gained popularity due to the fact that divorce coaching is becoming more popular because people realize how toxic the lawyer-up-and-fight – destroy everything you come across – approach to divorcing can be for everyone. How can you make the best of your present while still protecting your future? A skilled professional can be your ally and provide all the support you require without making you feel scared or stuck.

What does a coach do for divorce?

A professional coach trained in divorce is someone who helps people navigate the process of divorcing and create a new chapter in their lives. They can’t give legal advice and are not usually lawyers. They can help you determine the type of legal assistance you require and help you connect to the right experts and resources for your particular situation.

Divorce coaches do not provide legal advice and are not lawyers. They help you understand your options, give you information, and empower you to make the best decisions.

How does Hello Divorce’s divorce coaching work?

Hello Divorce is pleased to offer certified online divorce coaching as part of a comprehensive “one-stop shop” experience. This means that you don’t need to travel far to receive the help you need. While you may not need to meet with our client service team immediately, it is possible that you will have to do so in the next month. Your divorce coach may recommend that you meet with a certified financial advisor (CDFA) in such cases. The Hello Divorce team can connect you with a CDFA. There are no referrals.

Our divorce coaching program is designed to help and guide clients in their search to overcome divorce and succeed afterward. There are many big decisions and big emotions to consider. It’s okay to not be alone. You can ask for help, question your decisions, or seek out counsel. Your certified divorce coach can help you make actionable plans for your future, before, during, and after divorce.

Why should I hire a coach for divorce?

Divorce can be a huge experience. It’s also one of the most difficult. A professional can help you navigate the emotional and technical aspects of divorce. A divorce coach is a great resource if you are unsure where to begin or feel uneasy about making your own decisions.

Divorce logistics

A strategy is essential for your divorce. However, if you are not a lawyer or financial advisor, therapist or mediator, it might be difficult to understand the meaning of this term. Your divorce coach can help you understand.

  • This will help you to understand what tasks must be completed, in what order and how they should be done.
  • You can change your course based on what you are currently in need of it.
  • Assist you in locating the right professional resources to help you achieve your goals
  • Planning and management of divorce

Your coach can help you to understand the timeline and what to expect. They will:

  • Listen to your concerns and address them
  • We can help you establish clear, realistic, and achievable goals
  • As you navigate the financial and legal processes, offer practical advice
  • As you work towards your next chapter, recognize your achievements

Divorce questions

Are you having trouble with a particular topic related to divorce? Maybe you are worried about your financial security after divorce. Maybe you are concerned about the future of your child custody arrangements after divorce. Maybe you are trying to decide whether you want to divorce. Your divorce coach can:

  • Find the answers you need
  • Ask your CDFA lawyer, child psychologist, mediator or any other professional questions.
  • We can help you find the right professionals for your needs, usually within the Hello Divorce group

Do you struggle with the decision to divorce? Are you looking for someone to help you navigate the divorce process? Do you need a friend to guide you through the process of divorcing? Certified divorce coaches can help you with all these and more.

Divorce doubts

Doubts regarding your divorce can cause you to feel stuck and regretful. Are I making the right choice? What happens if all goes wrong? Can I find the strength to restart? Are my children okay? Can I ever feel normal again. These are the questions that a coach can answer. Your coach will:

  • Pay attention to your concerns
  • Discuss your feelings with us
  • Let us help you understand the root cause of your fears

You may be asked to complete questionnaires or other assessments in order to understand the root of your concerns and to achieve your desired outcome.

Divorce emotions

Your coach will help you deal with the emotions you feel as you go through this process. They are here to help:

  • Keep in mind where you were before getting married
  • Identify the place you want to be after your marriage
  • Let go of the negativity and seek peace

Coaching is a powerful partnership that allows you to tap into your true self, what you want and how you can achieve them.

What makes a coach for divorce different from a counselor, mediator, or therapist.

Your coach will connect you with the right experts and resources, but they don’t provide any advice or services. Your coach is invested in helping you achieve your goals and finding the best strategy. It’s not passive support. Divorce coaching differs from talking to a friend or therapist. Your coach is an advocate who can help you overcome your fears and reach specific goals.

Coaching will help you answer powerful questions such as “How can I live my best life when I’m going through a divorce or trying to figure out what to do after it?”

Divorce coaches are not lawyers who can offer legal advice. They also cannot provide advice or treatment. They are professionals who have been trained in the holistic management and support of those going through divorce. Your divorce coach, unlike a mediator, is impartial and will not take sides with you or your spouse. Instead, they are trained professionals in the holistic management of people going through divorce.
