Don't Make These Mistakes During Your Divorce

Making a mistake during your divorce can be costly for years to come. Because even an uncontested divorce in Cumming that is cordial and smooth can inadvertently lead to expensive errors, it is essential to let an experienced family law attorney represent your interests. Your attorney can help you avoid these common mistakes couples make during the divorce process.


Assuming That Your Ex Will Be Fair

Most people enter a divorce with the hope that his or her former partner will be up front, fair, and honest about your assets and debts and will be willing to reach an equitable settlement. Assuming this could leave you with your guard down and unprepared to face the consequence when your ex steps over the line. Prepare for your divorce as though it will be contested at each step by hiring an experienced family law attorney and then be pleasantly surprised when it goes smoothly.

Overlooking Long-Term Financial Security

During a divorce, you may be tempted to get it over with as soon as possible, so you agree to things like child support and alimony that don't account for your long-term interests. Take the time to work with your family law attorney and carefully consider both your short and long-term financial needs. Next, fight for the settlement that protects those needs. If coming to an agreement on these issues prolongs the divorce process, it will be worth it in the long run when you are financially able to rebuild your life.

Negotiating on Your Own

One of the biggest mistakes you can make during a divorce is speaking to your ex without your lawyer. Not only could you say or do something that could compromise your case, but you can also make the process more stressful than it has to be. Letting lawyers who are neutral handle these emotional issues on your behalf allows both you and your ex to focus on moving on with your lives instead of fighting each other bitterly.
