What is a divorce coach and what role do they play?

On Behalf of | Jan 31, 2022 | Divorce

Couples going through a divorce in Texas might have serious concerns and questions. A divorce coach might be appropriate based on the situation.

What is a divorce coach?

Divorce coaches have mental health training. They are skilled in various areas concerning divorces such as how to deal with transitioning from married to single, co-parenting and other important matters that arise during divorce. However, although divorce coaches have mental health expertise, they are not marriage counselors or therapists.

What role does a divorce coach play?

When you’re going through a divorce and choose to bring in a divorce coach, they can help you cope with all matters before, during and after the divorce. The divorce coach can help you make decisions that work for you, avoid procrastination and potential obstacles so that you can move forward with your life.

A divorce coach can show you to how better deal with your emotions while the divorce is ongoing. While divorce is always emotional, you have to be civil and rational when you meet with your spouse to work through pressing issues such as spousal support, child custody and property division, to name a few. With a divorce coach helping you, you have a better chance of learning valuable tools to stay realistic and composed.

Your divorce coach can also help you develop negotiation skills, something often you need to do with your spouse as you work on your split. You can learn tools on how to focus on the things that most concern you and compromise in a better way.

Divorce coaches know how to help you create a positive co-parenting plan with your spouse so that your children get quality time with both of you. Your coach can also help you find ways to improve your post-divorce relationship with your spouse so that you can effectively co-parent your kids.
