Before starting the divorce process, it is wise to be prepared. Pre-divorce guidance can help you approach your divorce from a position where you understand the practical implications and your rights and obligations in the process. Clients who engage in pre-divorce preparation tell us that they feel much better equipped when they are ready to move forward.
During the pre-divorce guidance process, we can help you:
- Clarify and focus your goals
- Stay out of court both now and later
- Choose a divorce process suited for you and your spouse based on factors such as communication style, family situation, and finances
- Learn to advocate effectively for yourself
To have a non-adversarial divorce, you need to communicate well with your spouse. The process may start with small decisions and conversations about issues such as living arrangements and division of assets. We work to help you have productive conversations with your spouse.
During the pre-divorce guidance stage, we can work with your advisors including financial professionals, therapists, and divorce coaches to help you process information and prepare for decision-making. If there is an advisor you need to consult, we can help guide you to the right person.
After undergoing pre-divorce counseling, clients are often ready to move ahead in a much calmer way than they originally anticipated, and they get through the process with less animosity. Then they are able to move past the divorce and on to the future that they want for themselves and their children. Watch the video above to learn more
