As you are going through a divorce, you might have some questions about what you should and shouldn’t do. This is common and it is something that should be addressed so that you don’t end up sabotaging your case. Remember these points as you go through the divorce process.
How should I handle contentious issues?
Never lose your temper. Remember that you and your ex are going through this process once. When everything is done, you will only have to deal with each other if it has to do with the children. You won’t have to continue dealing with your ex about property and other similar matters.
How can I vent about what I’m angry about?
One thing that you shouldn’t do is post about the issue on social media. In fact, you should be largely silent on social media because perception is everything when you are going through a divorce. Instead of venting on social media, try just talking to a friend about the issues that are bothering you. Make sure that the person you speak to is someone you can trust.
What do I have to disclose as part of the divorce?
You must be honest when it comes to matters like assets and similar things. Since a divorce is a legal process, you need to be completely honest as you answer paperwork and make statements.
Before you do anything related to the divorce, or even life in general, think about how the decision might be perceived in court. If you think there is a chance that it will harm your case, it is best to find another option.
