In a divorce case, the role of an advocate is a very important one indeed. It covers all of the following:
A divorce case advocate is expected to advise his or her client about how the case will usually develop and also about the client's options as well as the advantages and disadvantages and risks involved for each option. This is one of his crucial and fundamental tasks.
A divorce case advocate is also expected to respect and support the client's final decision. This is so even if that decision is not one that the divorce case advocate had recommended. In the end, it is the client's case and in general, the client's final decision should be accepted.
Where appropriate, a divorce case advocate should also reassure the client of the options that he or she has chosen. This may often involve reminding the client of the reasons why he or she picked that option in the first place.
Your divorce case advocate is your representative to the court and also to your spouse's lawyer, etc. He or she is there to advance your case and your interests as best as the two of you can manage by working closely together.
A divorce case advocate is in a very real sense your manager. For example, he or she is a manager of your time to ensure that the court's deadlines are met and you have sufficient time to consider your position, sufficient time to give your input to the draft documents he or she prepares, etc.
