How to Make Your Divorce as Painless as Possible

Getting divorced is tough, but it doesn’t have to be as tough as some couples make it out to be. In this blog, our attorneys explain some of the ways you can make the divorce process less painful.

Try Mediation

Some couple decide to go straight to litigating their divorce case. However, there are other options you can explore that can end your marriage without the hassle of going to court. One of these alternatives is mediation. With mediation, the couple speaks to a neutral mediator about ways to settle specific issues in their case, such as child support or alimony. Taking your case to a mediator before going to court can save you hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees.

Don’t be Vengeful

Courts do not care that your ex-spouse has wronged you, so don’t bother showing up with photos or screenshots of texts that show your spouse was cheating on you. Unless you were physically abused or the affair cost you an exorbitant amount of money, the court won’t put much weight on these details. Seeking revenge can result in you spending more money than you need to just so you can have your "day in court."

Keep Your Kids Out of Your Divorce

Most parents are aware that it is never a good idea to get their children involved in their divorce proceedings. However, there are subtle ways that this can occur. It usually backfires for one parent when a child is involved in the divorce because the child often becomes protective of the parent who is being attacked. For this reason, you should be careful with what you say about your ex around your children.
