If you are a coParent on the receiving end of the request for a divorce and don’t want it to happen, you may be tempted to fight it.

You may be feeling hurt, sad, and desperate to keep the life you thought you had going. Don’t. Legally, you cannot force someone to stay married to you. If you try to fight it, in the end, you only hurt yourself financially due to the costs involved in dragging out the inevitable.

There is also a very real chance your self-esteem will take a serious hit when you try to hold onto someone who has made it clear he or she wants to move on. You are worth more than that!

Strategizing and working with professionals is just as critical for you as it is for someone who is seeking a divorce. Letting it happen to you rather than being an active participant will put you at a financial, emotional and legal disadvantage. You need to stand up for what is right and fair so you can move on to the next phase of your life with your self-respect and dignity intact.


About Laura Aiello

Laura Aiello is a Divorce Strategist Coach for people who are facing the drastic life change of ending a relationship and want to do it in a holistic, growth-oriented way.

As an author and speaker, as well as coach, she believes in educating people on the decision making process, the “job” of divorce and, most importantly, how the challenges presented can be used to create a fuller, more realized life.

As a survivor of domestic violence, Laura understands the full implications of leaving a harmful relationship and the glorious opportunity that doing so can present.

Starting over from scratch in mid-life, she was able to recreate her life, rising to serve on the executive team of one of the largest fitness companies in the U.S. and eventually finding real love in a new, healthy marriage.

After parting ways with the corporate life, she took the bold step of reinventing herself yet again, getting certified as a coach and combining her love of health and wellness with her experience in high conflict divorce.

Bringing these elements together give her the unique edge her clients are looking for when faced with the end of their marriage – and the beginning of their new life.

As founder of The Divorce Strategist, Laura pulls on all your strengths, as well as turning your perceived “failures” into valuable lessons. This practical, solution based formula is the basis of her coaching practice today.
