Take Charge of Your Divorce
Going through a divorce is one of life’s most difficult challenges. Fortunately, there are numerous professionals who are able to help you. The important thing is to take charge of your situation and gather a qualified team of experts to advise and support you.
In addition to family lawyers, there are financial experts such as Certified Financial Divorce Analysts (CDFAs), therapists, mediators, and mediation coaches who can share their expertise and experience with you. A mediation coach can help prepare you for a mediation session by sharing negotiation and communication techniques that will help you influence your estranged spouse. If you are not yet headed to mediation, these techniques can help you communicate throughout the divorce process.
Becoming the “CEO” of your divorce and gathering the right professional support around you, will help you get what you want and what you need to protect your financial and emotional future.
