Divorce Mediation Coaching SessionWith the rise of divorces, there was a pressing need for more help for the people going through a divorce.  The term of “divorce coach” seems to have come from the same time of “life coach.”  Around the 1990’s, Dr. Kim Lurie, who was a lawyer in Merrick, NY started calling herself a divorce coach.  The term didn’t become mainstream in newspapers until the new millennium.  That was when lawyers, psychotherapists, financial planners and other professionals creating a burgeoning field of new divorce coaches.

Now there are businesses which allow for a couple to meet with divorce coaches who specialize in different aspects of divorce, such as finances, co-parenting and moving on after a divorce.  The important thing to remember about divorce coaches, although they usually have some training, they don’t take the place of a divorce attorney.  Depending on your needs, different coaches can other different areas of expertise.  But there are a select few things that you can expect from divorce coaches.

First, they can offer pre-legal advice.  They can be used as a cost-effective way to talk about your ex and also get recommendations for how to proceed with your divorce.  Second, divorce coaches can lend a helping hand through the process.  In times of stress and strain, people lean on their families, yet, through a divorce, it is harder to find unbiased or unemotional advice.  The third thing you can receive from a divorce coach is organizational help.  Divorce requires the completion and filing of a lot of different types of paperwork.

Divorce coaches can be an asset if you are able to use one in tandem with attorneys.  But if you are looking for legal advice about divorces, you should retain the services of consummate legal professional. Contact an experienced divorce attorney in Saint Charles who will be there to guide you through the process.
