What spouses should avoid during the divorce process
Once the divorce papers have been filed, a couple will move forward with mediation and negotiate the terms of their divorce. At this point, it is common for people to do things that are out of character and behave in unexpected ways. There are many emotions that a person is experiencing throughout this process, and it is understandable that people behave this way. However, this does not make it okay for them to do certain things just because they are hurt, angry or upset about their marriage coming to an end.
When people are going through a divorce, they may want to avoid doing any of the following:
- Moving out of state.
- Hiding property and assets.
- Violating temporary custody orders.
Spouses want the divorce process to go smoothly, but certain behaviors will prevent this from occurring. What some people may think are not important or may not have an impact on the divorce and how things will play out, could actually slow things down or put the whole divorce process on pause. Because of this, people may want to be careful with what they do during this time and maybe even before they file.
Divorces aren’t easy. People should be prepared for disputes and disagreements to happen, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be handled in a calm, mature manner. How spouses behave and the decisions they make during this process is important, so people will want to ensure they have someone, such as an attorney, on their team to help steer them in the right direction and make sure they do what is asked of them during this process.
