Spouses should avoid certain behaviors during the divorce process

Couples who are getting divorced will experience an array of emotions throughout the divorce process. Although they both may have decided that divorce is the best option, that doesn't mean either of them won't feel angry, hurt or sad. Divorce is not easy, and it is understandable that people will likely show a lot of emotion before the filing and even after the divorce is granted, but people should be careful with what they do and say during the divorce process because it can have a great effect on the final result.

When people are emotional about their divorce, they may do things to show others just how hurt or angry they are about the marriage ending. For example, people may not fully disclose information about their finances or property because they are mad and do not want their spouse to get their hands on it. This is something that should not be done because if it is found out that they have this property or have not been upfront about their finances, the divorce can take even longer, and the person still might lose everything to their spouse.

Is it legal for my child's mother to keep them from me?

When a man and a woman have a child together, it is something that isn't always planned. Depending on the situation, when the child is born, it is assumed that the man in the relationship is the father, and he will not have to prove paternity.

Parental alienation can make winning custody difficult

Child custody is something that is not always easy for a judge to decide. When presented with a case, they can use a variety of information to help them determine which parent is the better fit.

Why children should have equal time with parents

Divorce is not something that children usually understand, especially when their parents have been together for most of the time the child has been alive. Whenever two people decide to end their marriage or relationship, when there is a child involved, finding a way to make the transition easier for the child is always a good idea. Although parents may be reluctant when it comes to allowing the child to spend time with his or her other parent, it is something that they may want to consider because the child may suffer should they not see their other parent regularly.
