During a collaborative divorce, you will work with a multitude of people ranging from collaborative divorce attorneys and divorce coaches, as well as a financial expert and, if needed, a child specialist.
Most people, when going through a collaborative divorce, wonder about what a divorce coach is and if it is different than a divorce attorney. Short answer is yes, they are different. A collaborative divorce coach can be defined as a licensed mental health professional. This can include: social worker, psychologist, or marriage/family therapist. To become an actual collaborative divorce coach, one must go through intense specialized training.
Also, each spouse will have their own coach to help them during the collaborative divorce. This can help the clients control their emotions and communicate more effectively with one another. After the divorce is settled, a collaborative divorce coach may keep helping their client.
