Have you and your spouse decided it would be best to part ways? The divorce process can not only be emotionally draining, but the process in Missouri can be complicated. To help you get through your divorce with as little drama as possible, we at Benner Family Law have created a guide of dos and don’ts.
Hire a divorce lawyer. At Benner Family Law, divorce is just one of the areas we specialize in. Getting a lawyer for your divorce can help you understand your legal rights, obligations, and how to protect yourself.
Don’t give in to your soon-to-be-ex’s messages of conflict. If you find that you are receiving negative messages from your spouse, don’t respond and engage them further. If you do respond, try to keep calm. Any messages can be held against you when you get into the courtroom, so try your best to remain civil with your partner.
Make sure you have a support system. Divorce can take a toll on you emotionally. Surround yourself with friends and family to make the process less dreary.
Remember the divorce lawyer you’re going to hire? Listen to them. This process can be challenging. Don’t use Google as your only source. Your divorce lawyer is there to help you get the best results from your divorce. A Benner Family Law Attorney will be able to give you customized advice on your specific situation. Take notes when they are advising you. Ask questions when you do not understand something. And of course, look over any documents your attorney sends to you.
Don’t forget to take care of yourself. Take time out of your day to take care of yourself. Whether it’s cooking a nice dinner, or relaxing with a good book, make yourself the top priority. During this emotional time, self-care is as important as ever.
You are strong. Even though you are going through a harrowing time, don’t forget that you’ll make it through this. An important factor in reducing stress and staying strong is to hire an attorney who empathizes with you and provides personalized services like Tana Benner.
