The Business of Divorce
Coaching allows you to separate the emotions from the “business” aspect of divorce, which is essential since divorce brings so much emotional tension. Separating the emotions out allows for better decision making, improved communication and less conflict. The reality of getting divorced is about settling property issues. That means dividing the assets and debts in a fair, equitable way and determining the flow of money (support) between both parties moving forward. Creating a successful divorce requires sound decision-making since those decisions will impact you for the rest of your life. A divorce coach helps you practice good judgment by separating the emotions from the legal issues. Partnering together you can strategize to create an action plan that is solution oriented.
Coaching helps you adapt to the many changes that will occur throughout the divorce process. Change is hard. It requires the ability to transition. This internal transition takes place as a result of the external changes. Your ability to accept change impacts how well you will navigate the process of divorce and transition into your new life. Working with a coach will provide the support that is necessary to mitigate this experience and allow you to recover and rebuild your life a lot sooner.
