Don’t make these 3 mistakes in your divorce

Getting through the divorce process unscathed is the goal of many people who are facing the ending of a marriage. Unfortunately, misconceptions and misinformation about divorce can stand in the way.

Here are three common mistakes people make while going through the divorce process. Avoiding these mistakes can help expedite the divorce process – and make it less stressful as well:

  • Believing that you need to “win” everything: Divorce is not a contest. While there is often a great deal of hurt and pain associated with divorce, it is important to abandon the “winner” vs. “loser” mindset, and take an objective approach to the ending of a marriage.
  • Not considering the financial impact of divorce: Divorce can have a huge financial impact on individuals. Relying on a dual income and suddenly having to support yourself entirely, having to pay spousal support or child support, having to pay a mortgage by yourself – these are all examples of financial challenges you may face.
  • Not considering the impact divorce will have on children: If you and your spouse have children, it is critical to consider how your divorce will impact them. All decisions regarding child custody and parenting time should be made keeping your children’s best interests in mind.

Remember: You don’t have to face this process alone. An experienced attorney can help you avoid these mistakes and others as you go through the divorce process.
