Avoiding Common Divorce Mistakes

By Brian D. Perskin & Associates, P.C.  Jan. 24, 2012 9:33a

Everyone knows that divorce can be brutal. Emotionally-charged, financially messy, and deeply personal, the divorce process can try the patience and limits of anyone who faces it, especially those with children, complicated financial holdings, or a long history together. If you are contemplating a divorce in the state of New York or anywhere else in the country, it's easy to make mistakes. Understanding common errors made by those who have gone before you may make your journey through the divorce process easier.

The most common error made by divorcing individuals lies in their attitude towards their soon to be ex-spouse and the divorce process. Most people are overwhelmed by the emotional factor of divorce. The end of a marriage is generally a painful experience, rife with all kinds of emotions which can blind you to reason and make the legal process a destructive one.

Jealousy, rage, resentment, and bottled-up hostility suddenly let loose can get in the way when sensible decisions and resolutions need to be reached on vitally important issues, such as child custody and visitation matters and the division and distribution of marital assets. When it comes to these issues which can affect you long into the future, you should have your wits about you. Using your children as pawns, failing to communicate, hiding financial information, or communicating in only contentious ways may all lead you into further trouble. These types of behavior are often based on revenge strategies, instead of a well-planned divorce strategy.
