Navigating Divorce on Your Terms - The Benefits of Legal Coaching

Family Law - Coaching

Coaching / Unbundled Family Law

Legal coaching or unbundled family law services provide a more affordable alternative to hiring a family lawyer. Rather than having a family lawyer go to court for you, you represent yourself in divorce court and a family lawyer works for you in the background helping you draft legal documents, giving you advice and preparing you for court or family law mediation.

Legal Coaching and Unbundled Services

Legal coaching is sometimes called unbundled legal services or a limited scope retainer. These terms just mean that a lawyer does not take full control of your file. You decide how and when you use a family lawyer to help you with your divorce or separation. 

Legal coaching or unbundled legal help is different than the traditional model for a family law firm. Normally, your divorce lawyer does all the work for you and goes to court or mediation on your behalf. With legal coaching you represent yourself in your case and a legal professional helps you behind the scenes. This reduces the amount of legal work you are paying for, which reduces your costs. 

Preparing for Family Law Mediation with Legal Coaching

Legal coaching can also be used to get you ready for mediation. We believe that it can be an effective way to resolve a family law case.  However, it can be an intimidating process if you don’t know what your rights are or how to negotiate your position effectively. A legal coach can help you get better results by assessing your family law case, helping you with strategy or even developing your speaking notes.
