Divorce can be an emotionally-charged event, which could lead to mistakes that have long-term consequences. Common errors include choosing the wrong type of divorce or choosing the wrong divorce lawyer. In some cases, opting for mediation or collaborative divorce can help maintain a civil relationship between all parties, which may be in the best interest of the children. In addition, staying civil during the divorce process may lead to a faster resolution of the case.
This may save both parties thousands of dollars while obtaining a result that both sides can tolerate. Those who are fighting for child custody or for alimony may wish to refrain from posting on social media. Anything that is posted may be used against the individual who posted it as most judges will admit it into evidence during a divorce proceeding.
