Three Divorce Professionals You May Want in Your Kane County Divorce

Posted on in Divorce

b2ap3_thumbnail_shutterstock_526087603.jpgThe experience of getting divorced has evolved considerably in the last few years. Although divorce is still not easy, Illinois’ laws have changed to reflect modern family arrangements and now consider both parents responsible for providing financial support and physical care for their children. Courts have also tried to move away from high-conflict divorce litigation and often require divorcing couples to seek alternative dispute resolution strategies. 

This has made it easier for parents to focus more on divorcing cooperatively rather than trying to best each other during divorce. As a result, many different professionals are now available to help divorcing couples pursue a peaceful strategy that minimizes hostility and places the needs of children first. Here are three divorce professionals who, in addition to a great divorce attorney, may be able to help you during your Kane County divorce. 

Divorce Coach

A divorce coach is someone who specializes in helping divorcing couples work through the legal, emotional, and logistical changes of the divorce process. A divorce coach can work with both spouses to help them set priorities, minimize conflict, and focus on the future. An effective divorce coach can help spouses save time and money by streamlining the divorce and keeping couples on task. 

Mediator

Divorce mediators are the legal equivalent of divorce coaches. They are usually attorneys, although they do not represent either spouse during the mediation process. They know the law and can provide accurate information about the Illinois court system and how divorces are often settled so spouses have a better chance at creating a compromise that will be approved by a judge. Mediators also help spouses work to reach a compromise on many different issues such as parenting time, spousal maintenance, and asset division

Child Psychologist 

Child psychologists are often very helpful during divorce because they focus on the children’s best interests and encourage parents to create a divorce agreement that centers around their children. Child psychologists also work with children to help them understand the divorce and process it in a healthy way. They can help parents understand how their children are experiencing the divorce and make recommendations that minimize divorce’s negative effects.
