When it comes to divorce advice, the best one would be to avoid it by all means. Sadly, as much as we want to deny it, divorce is common and will continue to stay that way.

When filing for divorce, a lot of times individuals rely too much on their lawyers. While it is standard for lawyers to educate clients about the process, it is also one’s responsibility to study about it as much as possible to avoid any problems in future.

The following are some tips that are aimed at keeping the divorce process as simple and as effortless for both the involved parties as possible.

  • First and foremost, it is strongly advised that you thoroughly study the divorce laws of your state. Since each state has its own laws, both the parties can get a divorce in a state where the process is shorter and simpler. This will also arm you with the knowledge to protect yourself from any unreasonable demands or advancements in the process.
  • Once you have understood the divorce process in and out, file for divorce. You can either hire an attorney for the job or do it yourself by going to the court. People involve lawyers as they feel they are professional and can handle things in a cost and time-effective fashion. It is recommended that you provide any documents your representative attorney asks for.
  • Keep on communicating with your spouse. It may be hard to stay on friendly terms at such times but a little bit of flexibility on your side will save you from a lot of inconvenience in terms of custody, spousal support or property divorce.
  • If you are asking your lawyer to serve as a channel of communication, don’t forget you will be charged for every single minute he will spend making the added effort. This not only drags the divorce, it will make the ordeal even more unpleasant for both the individuals.
  • Make sure you do not hide anything especially when it comes to assets and property. If you fail to do so, you will decrease your odds of a peaceful settlement. This may also bring about further unnecessary hearings.
  • Make sure you meet your spouse and his/her attorney. Ask them as many questions as you can as this will help you avoid any undesired surprises.
  • Do not create complications deliberately especially for children’s custody. Have reasonable visitation agreement and do not be too rigid about your demands. If you create complications, the court will view it as an attempt to create complications. This may turn the tables against you.
  • It is strongly advised not to tie the knot again during legal proceedings. This will only complicate matters further which is a risk you just cannot afford to take.
  • No matter how valid your reasons are, refrain from selling any assets or property while your divorce is in process. This will only raise undue suspicion and the other party may assume you have some ulterior motives for doing so.
