The Difference Between a Lawyer and a Divorce Coach

Understanding the differences between a lawyer and a divorce coach can be a great way to determine which type of professional you need when you are facing a divorce.

A Lawyer

A lawyer is a legally trained professional who is qualified to represent you in court and handle all legal aspects of your divorce.

Lawyers can advise you on the legal issues of your divorce, such as the division of property, child custody, and spousal support. They can also represent you in court and make sure that your rights are protected throughout the process.

A Divorce Coach

A divorce coach, on the other hand, is a professional who provides emotional support and guidance to help you through the process of divorce. A divorce coach can help you work through your emotions and provide guidance to help you make decisions that are in your best interest.

They can give you advice on how to navigate tough conversations with your spouse, such as discussing child custody or finances. They can also help you build a support system to help you cope with the stress of the divorce process.

When you work with a divorce coach you are bound to spend less time and money with your lawyer because you’ll have your emotions set aside and ready for the legal business work.

Ultimately, the decision of which type of professional to use depends on your particular circumstances. If you are looking for legal advice and representation, then a lawyer is the right choice. However, if you are looking for emotional support and guidance, then a divorce coach may be best for you.

Don't forget that both are important to have in your corner! It’s just understanding that a lawyer is all business and a divorce coach is able to work with you through the tough emotions.
