At The Law Office of J. Craig Bourne, we understand that most divorces are stressful and complicated, which is why we work hard to protect your rights. While every divorce is unique depending on the facts and circumstances of each case, there are a few general things to remember that apply to most divorce cases. Below we list essential suggestions that can make your divorce process more manageable.
- Move Forward
With any tragic event in your life, it is important to take time to grieve your pain and process the situation at hand. At each stage of the divorce process, it is vital to leave the past in the past and to look forward to the future. Forgiving yourself and your ex-partner is a healthy way to stop looking back to grow and move forward.
- Leave Family and Friends Out of the Divorce
Divorce can be an emotional and stressful time, which could lead you to want to consult and vent to your friends and family. We highly suggest you leave your family and loved ones out of the divorce to allow everyone to stay neutral and cordial. Significant others sometimes have their own agenda, and it may not be compatible with what is best for you or your children.
They are also less likely to forgive your ex-partner, and that could impact your ability to co-parent.
- Do Not Agree to Anything Without Understanding the Full Context
It is important to not sign any divorce agreements without understanding the document in its entirety. It is much more expensive to hire an attorney to try to modify a bad agreement than it is to get it done correctly the first time. Our skilled attorney can help guide you through the legal process to ensure you know your rights before you make any binding decisions in writing.
