Avoid these mistakes during your divorce proceedings

There are few things that New Jersey spouses commonly do when divorcing. These are mistakes that happen due to the nature of human psychology. Indeed, it’s only natural that we get angry and react in certain circumstances. However, it’s vital that everyone going through divorce stay in control of their actions, use common sense and refrain from doing certain things that could get them in serious trouble later on down the road.
Here are the most important mistakes to avoid in this regard:
Stay as peaceful as possible: Don’t ever lose your temper when dealing with your spouse. You will not want to upset your spouse and make things worse than they already are. A simple argument can lead to the destruction of your divorce negotiations and other plans for a speedy, stress-free divorce settlement.
Don’t leave town until your divorce is final: If possible, don’t leave town to take a new job until you’ve finalized everything in your divorce. Moving out of state could make an uncompleted divorce more complicated to bring to a close.
Don’t violate temporary visitation or child custody orders: The judge will issue temporary child custody arrangements or you and your spouse will create an out-of-court temporary child visitation or custody agreement. Make sure to adhere to this or it could affect your future custody and/or visitation rights.
Stay transparent with your assets: The more transparent you are with money and assets, the better the court will treat you during asset division proceedings. You definitely do not want to appear like you’ve been hiding cash.
