Planning Your Divorce with Burlington Family Lawyers
Whatever shape your divorce takes, it's vital for you to be proactive. Understand what your divorce is asking of you. Divorce can be constructive. It won't always be pleasant, but it can be rewarding for you, your children, and your ex-spouse. However, those sort of divorces take preparation—and that requires listening to your Burlington divorce attorney. To start with, we recommend you get your own P.O. box so you can keep your mail separated from your spouse's. You'll also want to close joint credit accounts and change all the passwords for your social media profiles, computers, and mobile devices. Start making copies of relevant financial documents.
The top 10 mistakes people make during their divorce include the following:
- Not telling your attorney everything
- Not putting divorce issues in writing
- Fighting for custody without thinking it through
- Failing to see the IRS as a common enemy for both of you
- Getting petty with parenting and custody issues
- Failing to do a cost-benefit analysis for arguing through divorce issues
- Forgetting emails, texts, and EZ-Pass records can be used against you
- Using social media in a way that weakens your case
- Lacking respect for your spouse (especially in front of the kids)
- Failing to gather complete financial documents
One mistake we see couples make all the time is treating divorce like a marital argument with referees.
Divorce is a legal proceeding, no matter how emotional or personal it may feel. Making rash decisions like moving out of the marital home out of anger, venting about your feelings regarding your spouse on social media, or fighting over every little issue will not only hurt you in the long run—taking actions like those will ensure that your divorce won't end well for you.
