The Don’ts of Divorce: What NOT to Do (Pt. 2)

Picking up from where we left off in The Don’ts of Divorce: What NOT to Do (Pt. 1), here, we will continue to point out some of the things that are important to avoid doing during divorce proceedings in order to avoid unnecessary, expensive, and stressful complications with these cases.

The Don’ts of Divorce: More Things to Avoid Doing 

  • Do NOT make false accusations regarding domestic violence – While disclosing any history of domestic violence in a marriage is critical in a divorce case, it’s also vital that neither divorcing party makes false allegations of domestic violence to try to gain the upper hand in the divorce case and/or to simply try to hurt the other partner.False allegations of domestic violence are not only offensive (especially to real victims of domestic violence), but they can also end up having significantly negative impacts on your credibility in court. This may end up costing you dearly when it comes to issues like custody and visitation (among other issues in the divorce case).
  • Do NOT be completely unwilling to compromise on everything – Many people planning for or going through divorce can have some very specific ideas about what they want out of the process. While knowing what you want from a divorce can be a good thing, it’s also crucial that people be open to compromising on at least some of the disputed issues in the divorce in order to facilitate resolving the overall case as smoothly as possible.When even just one party is unwilling to compromise during a divorce, the entire process can be prolonged significantly. This can end up costing both parties in the divorce far more money than necessary. What may be worse than the financial costs, however, can be the emotional costs that prolonged cases have both on the divorcing parties and the children involved in the case.
  • Do NOT make big plans to move out of state immediately – Since divorce can provide people with a fresh start, it’s not uncommon for divorcing or newly divorced people to make plans to move to another state to really feel like they are obtaining a fresh start all around. If this seems appealing to you, do your best to delay any big plans to move out of state immediately, especially if you have children and custody is an issue in your divorce case.This is because your plans to move out of state can become an issue in the divorce and may even end up working against you when it comes time to resolve the various issues of the case.
  • Do NOT try to handle your divorce without the help of an experienced attorney – Of all of the Don’ts that we’ve discussed so far in this blog series, perhaps the most important Don’t to remember is this one – Do NOT try to resolve your divorce without the help of an experienced Las Vegas divorce lawyer like those as the RIGHT Lawyers.
