If you are considering divorce – or have already taken steps to begin the divorce process – you likely have concerns about what you should or shouldn’t do. Although every case is unique, there are a few mistakes that have the potential to impact your interests and the outcome of your case.
At The Buxner Law Firm, our family lawyers are passionate about helping clients take actions that will help them secure the best possible results. Because we’ve dealt with many concerns about what and what not to do and because we’ve seen people make a number of mistakes, we’re confident that we have the experience to provide the guidance and counsel our clients need.
Below are three common mistakes to avoid when getting a divorce:
- Letting emotions get the best of you – Divorce can certainly make for an emotionally turbulent time, but allowing emotions to take control can prove counterproductive to your goals. When emotions run high, divorcing parties can say or do things that impact courts’ decision – and not necessarily in a good way. Stay calm and focused on the importance of a positive outcome. Remember, you should always talk things over with an attorney or someone else that you trust.
- Taking what others say as fact – While taking about divorce with others who have gone through similar experiences can be helpful, remember that every individual, family, and case is unique. Take what others say about their divorce with a grain of salt.
- Not Speaking with a lawyer – Divorce can be a complicated legal proceeding, especially when children are involved. By working with experienced attorneys who are familiar with the process, local courts, and how to protect your personal and financial interests can make the difference in your case. Our lawyers are able to review your case and explain how we can guide you through your legal journey.
