How well are you divorcing? Is it taking a toll on you physically? Emotionally? Financially? How are you handling communication with your ex-spouse? And what about co-parenting? How’s that going? And your lawyer…what’s that relationship like? Are your bills higher than you think they should be?
These are uncharted waters. Unless you’ve been divorced before, you are an uneducated consumer. A first-time buyer. How do you know which lawyer/therapist/child psychologist to hire? And parenting is hard enough without someone trying to sabotage you every step of the way. (These are the reasons you need a divorce coach, by the way.)
Let’s see how you’re making out, shall we? Rate yourself on each of these eight areas on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being “I suck at this” and 10 being “No one could do this any better than I am”. Ready? Let’s go!
2. Managing your money
3. Knowing your family’s true financial snapshot
4. Self-care (diet, exercise, sleep, relaxation, enjoyment)
6. Maximizing your lawyer’s output while minimizing legal fees
7. Communicating effectively with your ex-spouse
8. Evolving gracefully into a fulfilling and successful single life
Okay, now add up your score.
Over 64: You rock at this divorcing thing. Give yourself a big pat on the back.
40-63: You’re getting by, but you could definitely use some pointers.
Under 40: You need help! A good Divorce Coach is the answer. But, hurry before you lose any more of your time, money, energy or sanity!
If you scored anything less than 100, then you could be divorcing better. A Divorce Coach can help you perfect each of these eight areas so that you (and your children) get through this magnificently.
