What to Avoid in Divorce

Common Divorce Mistakes Can Prevent Moving Forward

There is no one-size-fits all scenario to obtaining a divorce, and every individual case will be extremely different. What may work for one couple won't necessarily work for another. No matter what the specific needs of the couple may be, there are some things that should definitely be avoiding in the divorce process. Whether committed intentionally or unintentionally, a divorce can be made worse when these situations occur.

Some common mistakes that should be avoided include:

  • Hiding or incorrectly reporting financial information
  • Going into divorce negotiations without reason and letting emotions prevail
  • Losing sight of the children in the process
  • Holding onto details of the past instead of looking forward
  • Forgetting to consider in taxes when deciding on how to divide property
  • Remaining steadfast and refusing to compromise with a spouse
  • Assuming that a divorce settlement is the only way to get a divorce

Divorce is a life-event that comes with its own set of challenges. The main concern should be getting through the entire process the easiest way. One of the biggest concerns in a divorce is how the couple will handle the process. When a couple chooses to recognize that there may be sacrifices and compromises they need to make, it will be easier for them and their attorneys to move the process forward.

When one spouse chooses to withhold important information, refuses to let go of their expectations, or brings up instances that have occurred in the past, they are preventing themselves from moving forward in the divorce. These are all aspects that cause divorce attorneys to spend more time trying to come to compromise rather than moving the case forward.
