Tips for Divorce: The Do’s and Don’ts
The legal process for divorce can be confusing, and frankly terrifying for anyone who has never gone through a dissolution of marriage before. Those who need support and more than a few tips regarding their divorce, can consult with the Arlington, TX divorce lawyers at Brandy Austin Law Firm, PLLC for counsel. We understand that parting ways from a spouse may mean many difficult changes are going to happen for you and your children. Here we have listed a handful of do’s and don’ts for divorce:
Don’t: Rely on Loved Ones for Legal Advice
Loved ones are likely to rush to your side after they find out about the divorce. It is a good idea to create a support system during this time, as divorce is unlikely to be easy even if both spouses agreed it was the right thing to do. Despite loved ones probably having the best of intentions when offering advice, not all divorce cases are the same. When it comes to legal counsel we suggest reaching out to the Arlington, Texas divorce lawyers at Brandy Austin Law Firm, PLLC.
Do: Be Forthcoming with Your Attorney
It is important that you provide an attorney at Brandy Austin Law Firm, PLLC with facts about you and your marriage, so he or she can offer thorough guidance. If you keep something from your attorney out of fear of judgement, these facts may end up surfacing anyways. But, by the time your attorney uncovers these details it may be too late to create a legal strategy to keep it from harming your case.
Do: Give Divorce Mediation a Try
Divorce mediation is when both spouses have a meeting with a third party present, to talk about various divorce settlement topics. Points of discussion may include child support, pets, shared debts, property, money, child custody, and spousal support. A mediator is a trained professional that can help guide these difficult conversations, in hopes that a resolution can be made.
When people first hear about mediation, they may abruptly wave off the option due to not wanting to see their spouse in person. In situations where it is unsafe to meet with your spouse directly, an attorney at Brandy Austin Law Firm, PLLC may discourage attending mediation. However, if your spouse has never abused you or made you feel unsafe, then mediation could be worth a try. If both spouses are open to it, they could save a large chunk of money, time and emotional energy with mediation versus attending court over disputes.
Don’t: Stress Over the Little Things
It can be frightening to imagine the future, especially when there are so many changes happening because of the divorce. However, focusing on the future can help you not dwell on the more trivial conflicts that can arise. During divorce, both spouses may become nitpicky and lose sight of the bigger picture. Spending too much time arguing over the smaller things may cause standstills in the divorce process. An attorney at Brandy Austin Law Firm, PLLC can help you resolve both the little and bigger things that may become the topic of divorce settlement negotiations.
