“What Not To Do During a Divorce”

It is no surprise when divorce proceedings get a little dirty and a lot feisty with both the parties trying to get the upper hand. One of them often blows ups the whole case to hell and back when emotions get the better of them. These cringe worthy moments tempt divorce lawyers to just give up on these hopeless causes and move to the remotest part of the globe, severing all contact with mankind.

 

We cannot stress enough the importance of actually listening to your divorce lawyer both in and out of the courtroom. Here we have a list of what you should never do according to divorce lawyer:

 

  1. Loose Talk

 

All courts have some rules and regulations that ought to be obeyed. First impressions, and in court cases all impressions, matter. Loose talk should be avoided at all costs. Stay civil, calm and cool as a cucumber. Try as hard as you can to prevent losing your cool. Stay civil and respect your spouse.

  1. Do Not Harbour High Expectations

Divorce proceedings are unusually long, drawn out and require a lot of patience. Do not go in with any misconceptions or unrealistic expectations because you will surely be disappointed.  Some compromises have to made in order to gain some head way.

  1. Do Not Conceal Your Financial Assets

Concealing or hiding any information whether relent or irrelevant to the case will be treated as an offence against the court itself. It is never smart to conceal your assets in court and would only do your case more harm than good.

  1. Do Not Be Petty

Once again, reign in your temper and let things flow in their natural course. It would not speak good things for you, but rather your bitter antics could force the judge to ponder your mental capacity.

  1. Use Children to Blackmail

Never ever use children as a means to blackmail your spouse. This not only leaves deep marks in a child’s personality and functioning capacity, but it also leaves them with them for the rest of their lives. The judge will not react kindly to this foolhardy, so refrain from stooping to this low.

  1. Make Threats

The court will not care if your threats are idle and empty, bursting forth at the heat of a moment. It will deal with them just as it would with grace, real ones. Hence, resist the urge to throw about threatening words at the second party in any misguided attempt to intimidate them.

  1. Question Your Lawyer’s Motives

If your want to win the case and win big, do not doubt your DIVORCE LAWYER’S motives and question their loyalties for even a mere second. Trust them and let them take the reigns in the courtroom with you assuming more of a backseat in there.
These basic tips are meant to be acted on to not only make the transition from “married” to “divorced” easy for everyone, but also to prevent judgement being clouded in the haze of anger and frustrations. You need to be level headed and collected to fight this battle of wills if it does not go smoothly at first.
Divorce lawyers prefer taking on clients who tend to be more open to opinions and ideas, and are more flexible, rather than bullheaded, because this increases your chances of gaining some edge over your spouse straightaway.
