Some people decide at the beginning that they will take control of the situation, while others can be considered a complete mess. There’s no question that some people make mistakes in divorce – big mistakes. What’s unfortunate it the fact that we may have to live with these mistakes for the rest of our lives.

What are these mistakes, you ask?

  1. Making decisions without understanding the implications. The more information you have regarding your rights and options, the better decisions you will be able to make.
  2. Losing control of your divorce. Stay in touch with your attorney; don’t let him or her make decisions on your behalf without fully informing you.
  3. You must build a thorough inventory of your assets before dividing up you property can occur.
  4. Acting out of anger. Stay away from unnecessary drama and stick to the facts. Even if you’re feeling angry, keep it out of the court room.
  5. Letting your family and friends tell you what you need. Don’t be afraid to use your own judgment.
  6. Not paying enough attention to taxes. You don’t want to be surprised down the road with a big tax bill.
  7. Trying to win your spouse back by being generous. Don’t agree to far less than fairness; don’t be Mr. or Mrs. Nice Guy.

Just remember – You can make good decisions, no matter how bad things may seem at the moment. While you may feel flooded, a lot of good decisions are in your hands to make so don’t lose your head and take a deep breath!
