What is divorce coaching?

The American Bar Association and the Association for Conflict Resolution include Divorce Coaching among their list of dispute resolution processes, and defined it this way: “Divorce coaching is a flexible, goal-oriented process designed to support, motivate, and guide people going through divorce to help them make the best possible decisions for their future, based on their interests, needs and concerns. Divorce coaches have different professional backgrounds and are selected based on the specific needs of the clients.”

Divorce coaching fills a gap between the services provided by an attorney and those provided by a therapist.  I wish I would have had this kind of support when going through my own divorce.

People going through divorce have a plethora of needs in navigating the business of divorce, the lived experience of divorce, and moving on from divorce that a divorce coach is specially trained to address.  The amount and quality of support people receive during the divorce process directly correlates to the quality of their life post-divorce.  You deserve to start prioritizing your needs and investing in your well-being as you navigate this traumatic life event.  The ultimate self-care is having a partner in the divorce and learning how to manage your emotions, the process, and the transition with as much resilience and grace as possible.

One of the biggest mistakes you can make in a divorce is being overly confident that you will receive a more favorable resolution in court.

When you find yourself thinking in absolutes about how an issue will be resolved if taken to court (always, never), it is a smart move to stop and assess if you’re being overly optimistic about your position.

The situation is rarely as clear to the judge as it is to you. Even with a great attorney on your side, remember that the truth is often a matter of perception. Your perception likely differs from that of your ex. And the judge likely has a third perception.

Also, divorce law often does not account for emotional or moral issues. While your ex may have engaged in bad behavior, that may not necessarily mean you will get everything you expect in court.

Losing in court on an issue can change the dynamic of the situation and embolden your ex.

Realistic expectations save you time, money, and further unnecessary heartbreak. To have a successful divorce, it’s as important to know where your power isn’t as it is to know where it is. Seeking out, receiving, and heeding sound advice from professional experts will help you make smart, strategic decisions.
