About Karen Covy

As a divorce advisor, attorney, and coach, I help people end their marriage in a more amicable, educated and efficient way. 

I know how difficult divorce can be. I've helped hundreds of people decide whether to divorce. It's not an easy decision to make, no matter who you are. Plenty of people get stuck in indecision for years ... sometimes decades.  Unfortunately, being stuck sucks! It's the one place where you're guaranteed to stay frustrated and unhappy.

That's why I created the Decision Day Retreat. It's a full day specially devoted to helping you understand what's stopping you from moving forward in your marriage and your life so that you can overcome those obstacles and confidently come to a decision you can trust.

If you can't make it to the retreat, but still need help deciding whether to divorce, personal coaching can often help immensely. I can help you make a decision you feel confident about, rather than one you're worried that you will regret.

If divorce becomes a reality in your life, I can help you navigate your situation with empathy and respect. Doing that requires you to understand the truth about how the divorce system works. You also need to know what all of your options are. Diving headfirst into a divorce without being properly prepared and emotionally ready makes going through it a thousand times harder.

Making sure that you understand your choices so that you can make better decisions for yourself and your family is my mission. The Divorce Road Map 2.0 can help. It's a unique, private, and affordable online program that helps you prepare yourself for divorce. It will help you put yourself back in the driver's seat of your divorce, and of your life.

When it comes to divorce, preparation is everything. Your divorce lawyer isn't going to handle every aspect of your divorce for you. The Divorce Road Map 2.0 will help you fill in the gaps your lawyer leaves open.

I also write and speak a lot about marriage and divorce. I invite you to check out my website at https://karencovy.com. Or, if you would like to get your own FREE Divorce Checklist, CLICK HERE!

I wish you the best.


P.S. Just in case you were wondering about the traditional stuff, here it is:

I graduated with honors from the University of Notre Dame Law School, then started my career at a large Chicago law firm. From there I became a Bureau Chief at the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office.  After that, I opened my own law practice. I currently practice divorce law in Chicago and Naperville.

Over the years, I have been an adjunct law professor at the John Marshall Law School and an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association. In addition, I am also a Divorce Mediator and a Collaborative Divorce professional.

I am a member of the American Bar Association, The Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois, The International Association of Collaborative Professionals, The Illinois State Bar Association, and the Association of Family and Conciliatory Courts.

I’ve appeared on television, radio, and podcasts. I’ve also created a lot of divorce videos you can watch on YouTube.

You can find my articles on The Huffington Post, The Good Men Project, Divorced Moms, Divorced Girl Smiling, Guyvorce, Your Tango, Divorce Force, Our Family Wizard, Mammamia, and on my website.
