Only an attorney can provide legal services during the divorce process. However, for those who may feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to approach the proceedings, an experienced divorce coach may provide the emotional support and experience that can help ease the stress. A well-trained coach can assist with gathering all relevant information, including financial documents that are needed by the attorneys and in court. They can help facilitate conversations and work with an attorney to ensure that all information is collected.

A divorce coach can also act as an emotional support person. They can guide a spouse through the difficult aspects of the divorce, especially when the circumstances are less than optimal. They may also help ensure that the process is as amicable as possible. While they cannot provide any legal advice, they can help one select the most important issues that need to be addressed and provide the support needed to help one communicate those needs effectively.

Though family and close friends often offer support during a divorce, a professionally trained coach can provide the same support while also enabling a spouse to determine the best path forward in life. A divorce is an emotionally turbulent time and having compassionate and knowledgeable support may help one to get through the ordeal with as little pain as possible. Kentucky residents who are contemplating ending a marriage may be best served by contacting an attorney — along with other helpful professionals — who can provide the experience needed to arrive at the best settlement for their unique needs.
