Breathe. You’re Not Alone.

When Considering Divorce You May Be Asking Yourself?

  • Can my marriage be saved?
  • How do I start the process?
  • How am I going to get through this?
  • Do I need an attorney?
  • How do I minimize the damage to the kids?
  • How can I overcome the betrayal?
  • Are you facing grey divorce after age 45?

If your marriage has shifted and you’re considering divorce, in the middle of a divorce or attempting to heal and rebuild your life,
I know how you’re feeling.

You’re worried about your options.
Your finances.
Your path forward…
And whether you’ll ever feel happy again.

Just know, it will get better. I will show you the way.

What’s it like to work with Paulette

when it all feels like a blur

It Just Takes Courage.

Paulette Rigo is on a mission to change the stigma of divorce. She believes divorce is not a failure, but a new beginning for ALL members of the family. 

Paulette became a Certified Divorce Coach before becoming a specialist with the National Association of Divorce Professionals.

A member of the Amicable Divorce Network and Divorceify. She is committed to assisting you in navigating the family law system to reach an informed and low conflict solution to your family law matter.

In order to help women more holistically, Paulette also became a Registered Divorce Mediator, intent on combining education and resources with unconditional support.

She knows firsthand how hard it is to open up to family and friends in your inner circle when you’re not ready to share what’s really going on in your marriage. That’s because she was in that same place many years ago.
