If your client hired a life coach/consultant to help them through a family law matter, what would you want them to focus on and what’s hands off?

They could help with managing the emotions/stress of the separation, working out their new routine, including day-to-day with the kids without the other parent around, new budget/spending habits, stuff like that. I would make it absolutely clear to them that this person should have zero input on any of the legal matters, that they cannot listen to them about what’s “best” from a legal perspective, and emphasize that there is no privilege between them and this coach, so they may be called to give evidence by the other party

The life coach should be aimed at helping the client deal with managing a new home, parenting kids alone, and dealing with employment— not the divorce case. I had one client use a financial advisor from a well-known brokerage firm to review a settlement offer before we issued it— what a disaster he was! He made more trouble than help because he was always second- guessing me and confusing the client. I always support clients who seek counselling from psychologists and therapists who specialize in divorce matters.

Today my client annoys the crap out of me. The way the business team presents risks to the decision committee is a joke. The decision makers only hear what they want to hear. And when crap happens, it’s the project teams and legal’s fault - not the impossible deal closing schedule. God forbid we point out super high risk point or want the project to succeed. Meh, I’m just griping…

Anyone have thoughts or recommendation?
