Finding The Right Divorce Experts For you
Divorce isn't a do-it-yourself project. You want to have the right divorce experts to help you.

Step 3: Determine which service(s) you need. Look at the coach's website and uncover details about the services and products they offer.  Some of the things you'll want to look for are:

  • Individual coaching: Most coaches offer individual coaching either in person, by phone or even Skype. They also will usually offer packages of a number of sessions for a reduced price when compared to sessions only on an as needed basis.
  • Group coaching: Fewer coaches offer this option. When they do, it's usually in person, but there are a few who offer group coaching by phone and on-line. Also be sure to check how long the group remains together.
  • Self-study: This is more difficult to find, but there are a few divorce coaches who offer books, assessments, and programs for the person who wants to do the work on their own.
  • Retreats: Retreats are usually offered for a week or less at a resort or spa
  • Freebies: Most coaches offer freebies to provide people tips for navigating divorce and to allow people to have a better understanding of who the coach is and what it might be like working with them. Look for special reports, newsletters, resource lists, and blogs.
  • Costs and payment options: Divorce can be expensive. The cost of the divorce coach’s services and their accepted forms of payment are also important pieces of information for you to know.

Step 4: Interview the remaining divorce coaches. Many coaches offer a complimentary interview or consultation. Take advantage of this! Ask them the answers to the questions you still have. Get a taste of what it would be like to work with them. Be sure and make notes for yourself during each of the interviews so you'll feel confident in your final decision.

Step 5: Select and hire the divorce coach you're most comfortable with. Once you hire your divorce coach you can expect to start quickly getting through the remaining hurdles to you being happy and confident again.
