Avoid These Mistakes When You File for Divorce

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Divorce is often a stressful process. By ending your marriage, you will have to face a divided family or lose your home and custody of your children. Divorce can bring up intense emotions that can make the process even harder to take. Plus, it can lead you to make divorce mistakes that may hurt your position in your case and affect your future. This is especially possible if you don’t work with a sandy divorce lawyer. Knowing these mistakes will help you avoid them and ensure your divorce is successful and brings you the peace of mind you deserve. 


Not Hiring the Right Divorce Lawyer

Hiring the right lawyer can make all the difference in your divorce process. There is no need to work with the most expensive lawyer or one who has the biggest name. The most important thing is to look for a lawyer who knows the law, understands your goals, and will keep your best interest in mind. Choose someone you feel comfortable calling the plays for you.


Saying Hurtful Things About Your Spouse to Your Children

You can be angry, frustrated, and hurt by your spouse and the divorce. However, you should not talk badly about your spouse to your children because it can hurt them. In fact, this can also hurt your rights in future custody cases because the court considers the role every parent will play in the future in fostering a healthy relationship with the other parent.


Not Being Honest

In court, you need to be honest. Never hide or fail to disclose any marital assets when you proceed with the divorce. Lying in court and hiding assets can lead to you losing ground in your divorce case. Also, it can compromise agreements or settlements that have been made in your case. When you lie, your spouse can appeal the divorce decree. More importantly, lying in court can have you facing criminal charges of fraud.


Allowing Your Emotions to Cloud Your Decisions

When you deal with matters related to your children, home, and valuable assets, it can be hard to stay calm, rational, and logical. As a result, you may let your current emotions affect important decisions in your case. If your judgment is clouded by intense emotions, you can fight for things you don’t truly want or need in the divorce. Also, you can unnecessarily prolong your divorce, increasing the financial and emotional costs of the process.
