Make a road map for life after divorce

You save money when working with a divorce coach because they are dealing with the emotional fallout with a coach at a much lower hourly rate than with their lawyer, who really wants to focus on the legal aspect of divorce, and isn’t trained to deal with the emotional issues.  A divorce coach can get a client through this difficult time with the least amount of damage possible.
