Handling Your Divorce Proactively
Our Dedham divorce lawyers are firm believers in filing first. Why? Because filing first puts you in control of your divorce. People who file first get to set the agenda. However, filing first requires you to make some preparations first.
We recommend taking the following steps before serving your spouse with divorce papers:
- Get your own P.O. box and send your mail there.
- Close all joint credit accounts.
- Change the password on all your social media accounts.
- Change the password on your phone, laptop, and any other electronic devices.
- Make copies of critical financial documents. Here's a list of documents you'll need.
Doing all of this ensures that you're in a secure position to start the divorce—even if your spouse responds poorly or retaliates. You're safe from sudden spending sprees, from your spouse attempting to hide your joint financial documents, or from trying to snoop around your personal devices. Will they try to do that? Hopefully not, but it's better to be safe.
Avoiding Emotional Decision-Making
One of the ways we serve our clients is by helping them think strategically. The key to a successful divorce is picking the right battles (and knowing when to let something go). Your emotions might tell you that moving out of the marital home is the right decision, but strategy says moving out too soon might hurt your case later. Your emotions might want you to post on the internet everything bad about your spouse's behavior, but strategy says that venting on social media will always make you look worse in court. Your emotions might tell you that it's worth fighting over the antique hutch in the living room, but your lawyers would tell you that spending thousands of dollars in legal fees to fight over a piece of furniture that's worth a few hundred dollars doesn't make sense--no matter how it feels.
Here are 10 mistakes people often make during a divorce:
- Not telling your divorce lawyer everything.
- Not putting divorce issues in writing.
- Fighting for custody without knowing how to do it well.
- Failing to see the IRS as your common enemy.
- Letting pettiness influence the parenting agreement.
- Not doing cost-benefit analysis for divorce issues.
- Forgetting emails, texts, and EZ-Pass records are admissible in court.
- Using social media angrily or without considering the consequences.
- Showing disrespect to your spouse in court or in front of your kids.
- Failing to gather all the financial documents you'll need.
