When you got married, every aspect of your life became intertwined with another person. When you divorce, these threads need to be unwound as you create your new, independent life. There are emotions to process. There are added responsibilities. If you share children, there is a new "co-parent" dynamic to sort out. And how are you supposed to communicate without arguing?
Holistic Divorce Education will teach skills that allow you to...
Holistic Divorce Education can help people litigating divorce to better manage the process and improve their outcomes. Further, these skills are transferable to other areas of your life, and can improve your relationships, your effectiveness at work, and how you manage future life challenges. To be clear: this is not therapy; these are practical skills which can not only support better litigated outcomes, but may also improve how you interact with the world.
Contested, litigated, and “scorched earth" divorces can cost tens of thousands of dollars and sometimes more. Sometimes, however, litigation is the only way forward. Even then, it doesn't have to be a run-away train of funds. If you are forced to engage in contested litigation, these skills can strengthen your decision-making ability and help you avoid emotion-fueled conduct that raises costs and detracts from your case.
For those mediating their divorce, Holistic Divorce Education can set the stage for streamlined mediation and can also create an infrastructure for future problem-solving—without any third-party, judge, or mediator.
The traditional divorce model focuses mostly on finances: valuing and dividing assets/debts and determining possible support. If you have children, it will tell you the "who, where, and when” of parenting. And that is it. This basic model of divorce assumes you will figure the rest out on your own. The holistic divorce model, by contrast, considers how divorce impacts the whole you. It uses targeted education to empower you with skills that can support you through your divorce process and help you build your new post-divorce life.
The holistic approach aspires for both people emerging from the divorce in the best possible way. We explore the best ways to divide assets that preserve and maximize their value to each person in a way that is custom to the individual needs and the community resources. In addition to settling the divorce issues, we often connect people with professionals in other industries such as health insurance, accounting, financial planning, real estate, etc. who can help with post-divorce issues, or pre-divorce valuation.
Finally, through our educational offerings, we teach skills that can help individuals effectively address new situations and challenges that arise from divorce in the areas of co-parenting, emotional agility, and communication. Holistically, we see you as a whole person at all times and work to make every aspect of your divorce an easier experience.
