What is a Divorce Consultant?

Going into a divorce blindly (as most do) is a costly and time-consuming venture. A divorce consultant can assist you to prioritize your tasks, focus your energy on what truly matters and manage the time you spend on your divorce in a way that minimizes its impact on your daily life.

“So why do I need a divorce consultant?”


As a Divorce Consultant for The Common Sense Divorce, I understand that a divorce extends FAR beyond what you see in the courts. Divorce is a scenario that affects almost every aspect of your life and it’s a decision that you will live with for the rest of your life.

“You can divorce your spouse but you can never divorce your ex-spouse.”

It is my job to design a divorce plan that is tailored to your unique financial, legal and family situation. It is my job to check in with you regularly, encourage you through your weekly challenges and see you through to the other side of your divorce. My goal is to help you begin your new life afresh – to help give you the tools you need in order to stand on your own two feet.

A divorce puts pressure on all of your resources – financial, emotional, time, etc. As a divorce consultant, it is my job to guide you through the process and have those emotional conversations or vent sessions that you shouldn’t spend precious time on with a divorce lawyer.

I know that it seems like you have a mountain in front of you. It probably feels like you’re battling a monstrous distraction that is dominating every minute of your day. Trust me when I say that divorce is a lot of work. But divorce IS manageable with the right kind of help. Get a Common Sense Divorce Consultant in your corner.
