THE DIVORCE PROCESS AND WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Everything seemed so simple at the start of your relationship; You never expected the divorce process to be such a difficult situation. Even in the best of circumstances, tempers can escalate, and every decision can seem to be more stressful than the last. It is only human to find yourself reacting emotionally at certain parts of the divorce. However, it is important to remember that your actions throughout the divorce process can affect your family relationships and your financial situation for years to come. Hire the law firm who can help you navigate your options through this trying time in your life.
TIPS TO MAKE THE DIVORCE PROCESS EASIER
✅Cooperate as much as possible with your soon-to-be-ex.
✅Compromise yields quicker and easier results in divorce cases
✅Support your children through the Divorce Process. It’s even tougher on them than on you. Don’t make them choose between parents.
✅Let your ex know when and where you will spend time with your children while you work out arrangements. Your ex might think you’ve made a run for it and if the police get involved it won’t look good on you.
✅Fully disclose all your assets and property.
✅A court can throw out a divorce decree based on financial deception, putting you back in court years after you thought everything was final
✅Know your options. Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible for a non-divorce alternative like summary dissolution, annulment, or legal separation.
✅Do your own research. With a little help, you can be informed though you will still need an experienced family lawyer to help you.

What Not to Do during the Divorce Process
- Keep a calm attitude throughout the proceedings. Lashing out or losing your temper will only make matters worse and can even jeopardize your case.
- Make sure not to make any significant life changes DURING the divorce process. Any plans to move or take on a new job can interfere with your case and risk custody or alimony in a case.
- If temporary arrangements have already been made for custody or visitation of the kids, make sure to follow them. Violation of any kind will make it harder for you to obtain the custody or visitation rights that you are fighting for.
- DO NOT hide or “give away” property in an attempt to get it back later. If your spouse finds out or knows about these assets, they can bring you right back to court for the proper division of assets, and the court will not be in your favor.
