The Divorce Process

Divorce is difficult no matter how you look at it, but there are certain steps you can take to minimize mess. As a divorce law firm that has been in practice for nearly 25 years, we have seen many divorce cases - some messy and some relatively seamless. From this, we've gleaned some helpful tips for things you should never do during the divorce process. 

Pick Your Battles

Some things just aren't worth fighting over. Identify what is most important to you and be willing to stand up for it, but staying silent on certain issues can minimize stress and even streamline the process to arrive at a better outcome. The messiest divorces are those in which the spouses made every issue, even the smallest ones, a battle rather than a discussion.

Don't Be a Doormat

While you want to avoid unnecessary confrontation, you certainly don't want to be so passive that you get taken advantage of. Stand up for yourself and fight for the outcome you deserve. Divorce is a difficult process, and often a sad one, but beware of letting your emotions make you numb to your circumstances.

Have Discretion With Your Kids

Making the decision to separate from your spouse can be even more difficult when children are involved. At such a pivotal time in your children's development, discretion with your divorce is crucial. You and your spouse should definitely sit down with your children and explain your decision to them, but avoid letting them in on details that would harm them emotionally or psychologically. Also, be careful to avoid slandering or fighting with your spouse in front of your children.

Choose a Divorce Attorney You Can Trust

The attorney you choose can make all the difference in the outcome of your case as well as the overall tone of the divorce proceedings. For emotionally sensitive cases that are also of paramount important, like divorces cases are, you need an attorney who is compassionate but also relentless. That is what the Riverside divorce attorneys at the Law Offices of Richard K. Isles provide.
