Your New Divorce Coach, Divorce Mediator and Amicable Divorce Pro

I won the lottery in divorce.

I am the .001%

97% of divorce does not go to trial
and of the 3% that do go to trial
only 1% of that 3% goes to the appellate court!

Well, that was ME.

Meet

Your New Divorce Coach, Divorce Mediator
and Amicable Divorce Pro

I won the lottery in divorce.

I am the .001%

97% of divorce does not go to trial
and of the 3% that do go to trial
only 1% of that 3% goes to the appellate court!

Well, that was ME.

I personally endured an 8.5 year fully litigated case that included a 12 day trial that took place over 9 months
and after all that living hell…(please excuse my french)

there was a FOUR year state supreme appellate court process.

It cost a TON of money
years of my life tied up in court
and it nearly destroyed me and my family.

the funny thing
during this time
I could barely help myself
but time and time again
other’s reached out to ME for help..

I called my attorney Marty
(gutta remember I was born in Boston)

and told him what happening.

I asked him if I should go to law school…
he smiled and said

you know Paulette
you think like a judge
act like a lawyer and
feel like a therapist

you owe it to give back and help people

you my dear have experienced what 99% of people never will…

that experience gives you the depth and the breath of the entire divorce process

Full Circle

my personal experience gave me
the awareness, skills and strength
to help countless others facing mediation,
divorce, high-conflict litigation
and ever-changing family dynamics.

It drove me to do a tremendous amount of education, training, internship, mentoring and certification

and create Better Divorce Academy,
author the #1 best selling book, workbook, and the 8-module self-paced course: Better Divorce Blueprint
and host The Better Divorce Podcast.

With my team of experts, we blend private mediation with Certified Divorce Coaching to help you stay in control, make wise decisions, and maintain your dignity.

I’m here to transform divorce and create an optimal experience for YOU.

The one I didn’t have 😟

but you can.

Not knowing what to think — or being financially in the dark but emotionally void or worse…emotionally calm but a walking fiscal nightmare — shouldn’t be the thing holding you back from divorcing with dignity, grace and success.

Quite frankly, continuing to be a babe in the woods isn’t winning you results, it could also be holding you back and keeping you stuck.

Because no, your life —and future are yours to create and learning to be a “credible legal client” is NO joke! (your success with your attorney depends on it)

That’s where I slide in, ponytail on, laptop in hand all Reese-in-Legally-Blonde at your service.

It’s been a winding road. I left the dance, yoga, and birthing world behind to start my own business when I saw divorce’s devastating effects on families, couples, and children
—and you know it isn’t pretty.

High Asset Divorce
Coaching and Mediation
the BDA way

I wear THREE hats in the divorce world.

#1 I act as a Credential Private Mediator
that works with couples
who are committed to avoid litigation.

No one is the plaintiff
No one is the defendant
No one is suing the other

I act as a neutral party
that facilitates a conversation between the parties that allows them to create an uncontested
Memordum of Agreement

I then hand that agreement to one of my transactional attorneys
who take that MOA and write up the legal paperwork and submits it to the court

and in 30-90 days the couple is divorced and neither party ever has to step foot in a courthouse.

but it takes 2 to tango
in those cases

#2 I act as a Ceritifed Divorce Coach
where I work with one of the parties

I hold their hand
lock arms with them
walk through the fire
and step by step by step
personally guide them through all the way to the other end.

I personally support, guide, and coach clients from the very early stages of contemplating divorce to thriving and healing during and after the entire process.

I always say
I would get divorced FOR you if I could
cuz I’m really good at it.

BUT it’s not legal

So I get divorced WITH you.

Celebrate
ALL Of Your Options as Healthy

Over the years, my boutique academy has tackled cases for owners of 8-figure businesses, candy companies, financial firms, and fashion icons—many of them didn’t find the support or compassion they needed from high-net-worth divorce attorneys who were just in it for the cash. (They hate that I say that…sorry not sorry)

We’ve even worked with a couple that was married for just 6 months with a baby on the way!

Forgive me while I bend down to pick up the examples I just dropped, but we work on the reg with ridiculously fab married and divorcing couples just like YOU who are ready to clarify their GOALS and SAVE THOUSANDS. 

My team’s guiding philosophy is simple: it’s all about a success strategy and that tranquil feeling of

 

“I can live with that AND avoid court results.”

 

Preach.
