Divorce is a situation that often starts and ends in strife, pain, anger and confrontation. In a perfect world, an amicable divorce would be easy for the sake of each other and children, but that is often not the case. If you are entering or are in a divorce, here are three tips that will directly affect your settlement.
- Understand the decisions you make. Regardless if you have a team of attorneys or just one, ask questions so that you understand what you are getting yourself into. It is you who will have to deal with the consequences of your decisions, so it’s in your best interest to understand exactly what’s going on.
- Getting bad legal advice. Everyone and their mother has “good” advice when it comes to divorce. The more unprofessional people that you consult, the more convoluted your thinking will become. Stick with an experienced family law lawyer and don’t take advice from those who don’t know.
- Hiring the right lawyer. There are many lawyers out there and it’s important that the lawyer who you work with is a good fit for you. A consultation is a good way to understand you and your lawyer’s goals and see if there is good rapport.
