3 mistakes that couples make during divorce 

On Behalf of | Jul 22, 2023 | Family Law

Divorce is one of the most stressful life experiences you can ever go through. Unfortunately, if the relationship is broken beyond repair, you may have no option but end the marriage. 

However, divorce is a legal process. As such, what you do before, during and after your divorce is important. Here are three other mistakes you need to steer clear of during and after your divorce. 

1. Letting emotions get the better of you

There is no doubt that divorce can be extremely emotional, especially if you did everything in your power to save your marriage. However, letting your emotions take control can be a huge mistake. Emotions can lead you to make costly mistakes regarding aspects of the divorce like child custody and property division. 

2. Turning children into spies

Kids can be wonderful agents for covert operations because they attract almost zero suspicion. However, turning to your child to collect information about your spouse or ex is never a good idea. Besides the potential of hurting your child’s perception and relationship with the other parent, this could also impact your custody case if your spouse finds out. The same is true of using children to communicate with the other party. 

3. Discussing your divorce on social media

Social media is a huge part of life these days. We take to social media to share our accomplishments with our social media “families.” We also take to social media to vent our frustrations. If you are going through a divorce, however, talking about it on social media can be a costly mistake. In fact, you are better off avoiding social media altogether during the divorce. 

Divorce can be difficult. However, it is in your best interest that you maintain your cool. Knowing the mistakes to avoid during divorce can help ensure that you realize a just outcome for your divorce case.
