In a contested divorce, your attorney will likely be more involved, as mediation or litigation will be necessary. Although uncontested divorce cases are simpler, it is still in your best interest to have a legal representative who will help ensure that you avoid any mistakes or delays. Similarly, if you are looking to legally separate or annul your marriage, you need a divorce lawyer who can knowledgeably attend to any and every issue that may arise.

Top 5 Divorce Mistakes

Over the last 20 years, we’ve seen people make great decisions and others who have made critical mistakes which impacted the outcome of their case. Here are five of the most common mistakes people make during the divorce process:

  1. Failure to Identify Goals – An experienced divorce attorney will help you figure out your goals and will make sure every step you take is with your goals in mind.
  1. Trying to Use the Court to Settle Relationship Disputes – While there is often animosity between divorcing couples, refusing to compromise brings only temporary satisfaction. It usually ends up costing more time, money, and headache.
  1. Letting Your Emotions Take Over – While ignoring your emotions during a divorce can be harmful, letting them control you can be even worse. Emotional decisions are rarely in your best interest. A therapist or counselor can help you deal with your emotions in a healthy way.
  1. Putting Your Needs Ahead of Your Kids – Children often make the divorce process more complicated and contentious, but they can’t be ignored. See our blog for more information about helping children through a divorce.
  1. Hiring the Wrong Lawyer – It’s better to hire an attorney who specializes in family law rather than a general legal attorney. Imagine you’re repiping your home – would you rather hire a general handyman, or a contractor who focuses exclusively on plumbing?
