Sometimes we just need a little guidance and reassurance. That’s especially true during a divorce, which can be one of the most stressful, emotional, and challenging moments of your life.
You need a guide by your side who has the experience, knowledge, and compassion to be able to explain what is happening and why and someone who will still fight for you every step of the way.
THE BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION
We’ve all heard the stories about how horrible and nasty divorce can be. People going through a divorce fear that if they make a mistake—or simply aren’t vicious enough—then they’ll be taken advantage of somehow and end up suffering for the next several years as a result.
It doesn’t have to be this way. The right representation is aggressive and tough without resorting to nasty tactics.
A collaborative divorce is not only possible; it’s the right thing to do. More often than not, your attempts to “hurt” or “punish” your spouse by being aggressive with them throughout your divorce are just going to backfire. Everything will be much more difficult, you’ll be tied up in expensive court procedures, and the entire process can last much longer. And when children are involved, far too often they are the ones who end up getting hurt the most, not the spouses.
FAMILY LAW COACHING
For many, their knowledge of the legal system consists of either what they’ve seen on TV or what they’ve heard about from their friends and family. Unfortunately, none of those sources are very reliable.
Florida law can be complicated, and while many steps of divorce are clearly laid out by state statutes, it takes an experienced and knowledgeable individual to guide you through the process.
That’s what family law coaching is. When you hire a coach, you’re hiring an expert who will walk you through the divorce process and explain what is happening, why it’s happening, and what will happen next.
Without clear guidance and emotional support, you could make an avoidable mistake that ends up costing you both time and money. When stressed and under immense pressure, it’s all too easy to respond to people poorly and counterproductively because you lost control of your emotions or didn’t have a complete understanding of what was happening.
When you have a lawyer as your divorce coach, you can avoid those mistakes and have the confidence that comes from understanding the entire legal process. You’ll be able to reduce conflict, whether it’s with a spouse, another lawyer, or anyone else that is making life difficult. And just because the goal is reducing conflict, it does not mean your coach won’t be aggressive in representing your needs.
Above all, your coach can guide you from a more objective perspective and offer their professional and unbiased opinion throughout your journey.
GUIDANCE FROM LEAP FROG DIVORCE
Our coaching services are perfect for a wide range of individuals who are trying to navigate a family law problem or dispute.
Many of our coaching clients either choose to not have a lawyer represent them or they have a lawyer but are looking for additional guidance and advice regarding the non-legal aspects of their situation. We are happy to work with all clients, regardless of whether or not they already have a lawyer to handle their case. If warranted, we’re also more than willing to collaborate with your lawyer so that you have the best representation possible.
Others might find that they need emotional support and guidance on how to deal with the feelings they are experiencing. Unfortunately, many family law problems can be traced back to an individual with a high-conflict personality type. High-conflict personalities can take an already hard situation and make it dramatically more draining and punishing.
Whatever your particular situation is that you are dealing with, we can offer guidance and support to help you get through this difficult time.
