What Not To Do During Divorce

For many families, divorce can be an emotional, complicated process. With tensions running high, it can be easy to let your emotions drive your decisions, ex more but doing so can be detrimental to the outcome of your divorce. Our Rancho Cucamonga divorce attorney explains what not to do during your divorce. Keep reading for more information.
  1. Don’t Use the Courts to Get Back at Your Ex

The most common mistake people make is using the family courts to get back at their ex. Remember the court system is in place to help you resolve the business aspect of your divorce, not to be a battleground for your personal fights.

  1. Don’t Refuse to Settle

A large part of divorce is reaching a compromise or settlement between you and your ex. Regardless of your emotions on how your marriage is ending, you should focus on how you can create a stable life separate from your ex. Drawing out the settlement process will only cost you and your ex more money in legal fees.

  1. Don’t Manipulate Your Children

You should never try to turn your kids against you spouse during a divorce. Try to rise above your anger and put yourself in your child’s shoes. They see both their parents as their role models. Manipulating them to believe otherwise can be detrimental to your child’s well-being and your divorce case. In fact, many family courts have trained professionals who can spot when parents are attempted to use this tactic to get sole custody of their children. If the courts catch you, it could significantly impact the outcome of your case.

  1. Don’t Spend Money

Legally untangling the lives of two people who have spent years or even decades together can be complicated and expensive. Depending on your circumstances, divorce can significantly impact your standard of living, which is why you should use this time to create a financial plan.
