Surround Yourself With Good People During Divorce

May 22, 2024

It's no secret that divorce is one of the most difficult things you can go through in your life. Not only is it emotionally taxing, it is expensive, time consuming, and stress-inducing. You're expected to gather all sorts of documents, understand your family's finances, make decisions about your children, divide up the assets, and basically start a life that is completely different than the one you imagined when you got married.

Friends and Family Mean Well
If you're going through a divorce, you probably have friends and family members who have been quick to dish out advice to you. Do this, don't do that. Why aren't you doing _______? Use this attorney. Don't ask for that in the divorce.

As a general rule, our friends and family mean well. They think they're being helpful or supportive. But most times, they're just adding to the confusion and overwhelming feelings. Most people just don't have enough experience in the area of divorce to give solid advice. They're telling you about their own personal experience in their divorce or what their friend went through. But they don't know the facts about the divorce laws or the best way to handle issues in your divorce.

Help From the Professionals
If you need advice and guidance during your divorce, you are best off speaking with qualified professionals in the divorce space. This will include your divorce lawyer, a divorce coach, a private investigator, a forensic accountant, or one of the other various professionals who have expertise with separation and divorce.

The secret is finding qualified professionals who are providing good advice who you want to work with and can afford to hire. We all know that divorce is expensive, and you likely have a limited budget for professional help.

Creative Ways to Get Help
If you're not made of money but still know that you need more help in your divorce, it's time to get creative and look for ways to get access to professional help at a lower cost. Hiring a *cheap* attorney is not usually the best answer. Forgoing professional help to save a few dollars can come back to haunt you later.

One great way to get professional help at a lower cost is finding group coaching options from divorce experts. This allows you to get direct access to the expert, but the cost is often much lower than one-on-one help because others are also accessing the expert at the same time.

Our MONEY Group is one such option. You get the Divorce Money Guide to walk you through the process of fully understanding your family's finances, but you also get direct access to a forensic accountant to answer your questions and show you how to put together your financial documents. Weekly video content and regular live sessions help guide you through the process and give you an opportunity to ask questions about your specific divorce situation.

One of the best parts about being a part of MONEY Group is being surrounded by other women who are going through the same thing as you. Finding a community of people with similar experiences can be really important when you're going through something traumatic like divorce. MONEY Group gives you the opportunity to lean on other women going through divorce, share stories about your experiences, and seek feedback from one another. The personal connections made in MONEY Group have overwhelmingly been one of the favorite things of our participants.
