Don’t Let Your Emotions Control You:

Don’t Let Your Emotions Control You This is perhaps the most important “don’t” of divorce. Divorce is an extremely stressful process, crucial that you don’t make decisions based on emotion–while you may feel better for a moment, there is nothing to be gained from this behavior.

Don’t Violate Any Court Orders :

Don’t Violate Any Court Orders During a divorce, it’s common for a judge to issue temporary custody or visitation orders. It is a very bad idea to violate these court orders, as it can make it extremely difficult to get the custody or visitation rights you desire. Unless you have reason to believe that your children are in danger, it’s best to follow the court order to the letter.

Don’t Attempt to Hide Property:

Don’t Attempt to Hide Property It is very common for individuals to hide property, or “give it away” with the intention of retrieving it later. This rarely works out well. If the court finds out that you are attempting to hide property, you could face incarceration, a dismissal of your claims, and additional fees.

Don’t Use Your Children as Therapists or Spies :

Don’t Use Your Children as Therapists or Spies Divorce is especially difficult on children, but can be made even tougher if one or both parents use them as a sounding board. While you may have serious issues with your spouse, you should not bring your children into the middle of your dispute. Do not use them to collect information on your spouse, or attempt to sway their opinion of the other parent.
