Most Collaborative divorce cases in Marin include two divorce coaches because the divorce is more efficient when they are part of the process. Each of you has an aligned coach for support and guidance. Some people may view coaches as an extra, nonessential or optional part of the process, and one spouse may want a coach when the other might not. When this happens, one or the other of the divorcing spouses may feel disempowered: either the person who doesn’t have a coach may feel disempowered and/or the person who wanted a coach and didn’t hire one may feel disempowered. In this case, an alternative can be to go to a one-coach model, where the coach (like the financial professional) is a neutral who works with both people.
