Follow These Tips For the Best Resolution
Cooperate – A willingness to work with your spouse to negotiate goes a long
way toward expediting the process. Even if your ex is not willing to show
the same courtesy, your cooperation will be your advantage if your divorce
goes to trial. Stubbornness, frustration, and lashing out can make matters
worse for you and your family. Furthermore, be sure to follow all temporary
orders in place.
Prioritize children – If there are children involved, they should be your priority when
making decisions. Divorce is often harder on children than on the spouses,
themselves. When negotiating child custody and support, it’s easy
to want to be selfish and hard to want to give up parental time, but stubbornness
not only impacts the process, but it could hurt them, as well.
Communicate – While it may not be easy to maintain lines of communication with your ex,
it is a crucial factor to successful divorces, especially when children
are involved. Tell your ex where you and your children are at all times
and talk about your future plans after the divorce is finalized.
Be open – Make sure you disclose any and all property in your possession
and don’t attempt to hide them or giving them away. You may think
that you are giving yourself the upper hand, but if your ex has a decent
attorney, they will find it and it will negatively affect your likelihood
of gaining a favorable decree. Financial deception can also mean that
you land right back in court after your divorce is finalized.
Do your homework – There are a lot of options regarding divorce proceedings and a lot of factors
that can affect them. Understanding the way decisions are made and the
laws surrounding divorce processes can give you an advantage.
