When making major family decisions like the divorce, you need to be mentally prepared and have the support and assistance of an experienced attorney who understands your family's needs and can help you reach the best outcome for everyone, whether it's a contested or uncontested divorce, with or without children.
We've learned through experience how wise mindset tips, which may seem obvious at first, are essential for a smoother process for everyone:
01. Don’t Make Important Decisions Without Thinking Them Through!
During a divorce, there are many important decisions which have to be made. It is important to think these through. Resist the impulse to make a quick decision just to “get the case over with”.
02. You Are Getting Divorced… Your Children Are Not!
Think before you speak. It is as easy to get caught up in the heat of the moment and say something about your spouse. However, these actions can be very damaging to your children. No matter how upset you are with your spouse, you should not try to discourage or interfere with a healthy parent/child bond.
03. Don’t Believe Everything People Tell You About Their Divorce.
Your divorced friends might try to give you advice about what happened in their divorce. Every situation is unique. It is best to rely on the advice you get directly from your Attorney
04. Consider Alternatives to Court
Court is not all it is cracked up to be. Litigation can be lengthy and expensive. Mediation is a positive alternative to the divorce process. Many times, mediation allows spouses to make their own decisions and structure a parenting plan that fits best for their children’s needs.
05. Have Reasonable Expectations
Sometimes, divorcing spouses have completely unrealistic or inconsistent expectations with the law. You need to understand how the law applies to your specific case and have a reasonable expectation about the outcome. You may want to consult with an attorney to get a better understanding.
