The Calm Amid the Chaos
The divorce process is a stressful and emotionally taxing experience. High conflict divorce cases present many challenges and oftentimes the dispute between spouses escalates. Emotions get in the way of clear thinking.
Ultimately, cases come down to the division of assets, alimony, child support and child custody. An experienced attorney knows how to remain calm, investigate, probe, uncover the truth and work towards a desirable resolution.
Things to Avoid in a High Conflict Divorce
When conflict erupts, you might look for the quickest way out. Here are some mistakes to avoid:
Agreeing to terms too quickly. Don’t make rash decisions. What you decide here can affect you for years to come.
Transferring or hiding assets. If you get caught, it hurts your credibility with the court.
Failing to consider tax consequences. You should know how the alimony or asset distribution will be affected by taxes.
Comparing your case to friends. One friend pays no child support while another pays heavily. Your situation is different and your outcome will be different.
Failing to investigate. Don’t just accept what the other spouse is telling you. Spouses often hide money or assets during this time or make untrue allegations about the other spouse. Have your attorney do a thorough investigation so you know what your rights are.
