Going through a divorce can be an extremely stressful time for all parties involved. Sadness, anger, and often times, disbelief add to the strain of a situation which can cause emotional pain, frustration, and heart ache. These emotions often skew an individual’s thinking which can cause them to behave irrationally.
Long, drawn out proceedings fueled by underlying anger wind up costing individuals going through a divorce a significant amount of money. Challenging as it may seem at the time, behaving in a calm, pragmatic manner during divorce proceedings will enable one to move past the process in a healthy, productive way. This in turn, will lead to a more peaceful existence for everyone involved.
It is essential that both parties seek the advice of separate divorce lawyers during the transition from marriage to divorce. Often times, spouses try to convince the other that they do not need to hire a divorce lawyer or that the same counselor should be used for both people. An attorney needs to fight for the individual rights of his or her clients. Representing both parties in a divorce is a conflict of interest. It is also not a good idea to represent yourself in cases of divorce, especially if your spouse has secured legal representation.
Everyone benefits if the parties involved remain calm and professional during their divorce proceedings. Tempting as it may be at the time, bringing up personality flaws and throwing those flaws in your soon-to-be ex-spouse’s face only make for bitter resistance and a prolonged period of fighting. The use of curse words, derogatory remarks, or humiliating comments should be avoided.
Nothing stirs things up more than bringing a new love interest into the picture. A divorce should only involve the two people who are dissolving their marriage. It is in everyone’s best interest to avoid getting involved in a new relationship until the divorce is finalized. If one is involved in a new relationship, it is beneficial to not discuss it with the spouse and especially with the children during divorce proceedings.
Putting children in the middle of the problems is damaging and hurtful and can cause kids even more stress than the actual divorce. Making threats about child custody is terrifying to both the children and the loving parent. Moreover, courts do not make it a habit of denying visitation rights to loving and responsible parents.
