Divorce Do's and Dont's

Find out what you should and shouldn't do during the divorce process.

Going through a divorce will undoubtedly be a significant change in a person’s life. It’s a change that won’t just affect the separating spouses, but an entire family both close and extended. What many who are seeking a divorce don’t realize is the intense process it is both mentally and legally draining. Often times this leads to decisions being made based on emotion. Many, in the interest of finalizing their divorce as soon as possible will find themselves saying “I settled for too little”, “I didn’t realize what this would do to the children”, or “My legal mistakes will haunt me for years”.

In order to avoid making regrettable decisions in your separation or divorce, here are some helpful pointers:

Choosing the right lawyer:

Going through a divorce is a sensitive process. Finding an attorney who will meet your specific needs as an individual going through this process will not only bring you peace of mind, but likely the results you desire from your divorce. You are the only one who knows what kind of person you are, beyond that what kind of person your spouse is, and what kind of split this is going to amount to. Find the lawyer who is RIGHT for you and will advocate zealously on your behalf.


Choosing the right process:


What many don’t realize when seeking a divorce is that there are many ways to remedy your cause of action. If you are seeking a divorce, take time to discuss all the possible options with your lawyer. Come to a conclusion with your spouse on how you can both effectively conclude this chapter of your life with them.


Understanding custody issues:


Unfortunately, there are instances where you may find yourself in a situation that you simply cannot communicate at all with your spouse. If the contact you have with your spouse turns into arguments, the custody arrangement regarding your children can easily become a nightmare. During your divorce you will be making major decisions regarding your children’s lives. While working out the legal arrangements, it is imperative that you and your spouse keep the best interest of your children in mind.
