Being Proactive About Your Divorce
For any family law issue, we help our clients think strategically about their needs and goals. That begins with knowing that divorces can be constructive and beneficial for your family as long as you follow certain principles. Our job will be helping you navigate the specifics of your divorce, like how much alimony you're entitled to or what your parenting agreement should include. Your job will be trusting our advice as we walk through this together.
If you're considering a divorce, here's the first thing you should consider doing: get your own P.O. box. Keep your mail separated from your spouse's. While you're at it, close any joint credit accounts, change all the passwords for your social media profiles, computers, and mobile devices, and start making copies of critical financial documents. Each of these steps gives you greater control over the divorce process. For example, if your spouse wants to retaliate with a spending spree on the family credit card, they won't have that option. If they want to hide financial statements from you, you'll already have everything you need.
Avoid these 10 common divorce mistakes by doing the following:
- Tell your attorney everything
- Put all divorce issues in writing
- Consider your goals when fighting for custody
- See the IRS as the common enemy for you and your spouse
- Don't fight for anything out of pettiness or resentment
- Do a cost-benefit analysis for every contested issue in your divorce
- Remember that emails, texts, and EZ-Pass records can be used against you
- Use social media responsibly. When in doubt, don't post it.
- Show respect to your spouse—especially in front of the kids.
- Gather a complete financial record—leave nothing out.
Whatever you do, never make important decisions emotionally. That's why you hired a lawyer—to help you make well-informed decisions for the long-term benefit of you or your kids. Moving out of your marital home out of anger, venting about your spouse on social media, or fighting over every little issue are some of the most costly mistakes couples can make. When you're making decisions that affect the rest of your life, trust us. We've done this thousands of times before, so we know how to get you through this as pain-free as possible.
