Divorce can be a confusing time. Too often people make mistakes that end up hurting their case instead of helping their situation like they thought it would. If you are currently going through a divorce or think a divorce may be in your future, follow these tips below to avoid mistakes.

  1. Do not let your emotions get the best of you.
    Before any legal proceedings even take place, your emotions are probably already on edge. Sometimes these emotions can lead to unnecessary aggression. When aggression enters the legal scene, your case will usually take a longer amount of time and cost you much more money. Save yourself the headache and stop the drama.
  2. Leave the kids out of it.Leave the kids out of your divorce
    When children are involved, divorce can be more problematic. Hostility can quickly increase when one parent threatens to not allow the other parent to see the children. Parties may even attempt to use finances as a bargaining tool for timesharing. Do your best to not let your divorce and arguments with you ex interfere with the children’s events or holiday celebrations. Once again this aggression will lead to a lengthier and more expensive divorce.
  3. Do not play around with money.
    Money is often a major issue in a divorce and all too often one partner plays around by hiding or misreporting his/her finances. He or she may want to reduce alimony payments, prevent the other party from hiring a lawyer, or even just want to spite their ex. No matter the intention, such actions often end up hurting the guilty party in the end. Money is easily tracked and any foul play immediately leaves you looking dishonest in a courtroom.
