About Paulette Rigo - Certified Divorce Coach

I am the 1%. I endured an 8.5-year divorce trial and full appellant process that 99% of people never experience. 

Because of that unprecedented experience, I am able to help others navigate all aspects of the divorce process from start to finish.

In 2007 I left my broken marriage. But what followed was even more painful.

Suffered relationships with my family and children. Emotional and financial mistakes that I just wasn’t prepared for at the time.

My own divorce was filled with many mistakes simply because I didn’t know what to do. And after years of getting knocked down, it wasn’t until I created a team of experts to give me the full support that I needed. When I incorporated my wellness training along with a holistic approach, I began to see the light on the other side.

Because of my experience, I created Better Divorce Academy to share the wisdom I gained from my own grueling experience as well as years of professional training, life coaching, divorce designations, and mediation certification.

Highly experienced working with clients in high conflict toxic relationships, including: Parental Alienation, Parental Estrangement, and Narcissistic Personality Disorder. I also specialize in Divorce Recovery and Career Transition Support.

My professional work is committed to creating an optimal divorce experience for each of my clients.

I help families resolve their dilemma with minimal stress, reduce costs, and less emotional scarring.
