On Behalf of | Sep 9, 2020 | Divorce

Are you searching for ways to make the process of divorce in Carlsbad a little easier?  Divorce can be an emotional roller coaster.  It is common to feel overwhelmed at times and more accepting at others.  One of the first things to understand is there will be bumps and unexpected developments along the way.

So the Certified Family Law Specialists at Burke & Domercq thought you might be able to use a few tips to help you to reduce the stress and pressures along the way.

Allow Time to Make Sound, Non-Emotional Decisions.  Highly emotional decisions and those made in the midst of an emotional storm are rarely good long-term decisions.  You have the benefit of time.  If there is an issue which feels to overwhelming to consider at the moment, set it aside.  Rarely, if ever, are decisions required in the moment.

Organize in Advance.  A lot of information will be required of you, especially toward the beginning.  You can begin now to gather information and statements on all assets, financial accounts, credit cards, savings and checking accounts, retirement vehicles and investments for the past three years.

Decide What is Most Important to You. One of the ways to make the process of divorce in Carlsbad a little easier is to work with Burke & Domercq to establish goals and objectives in all aspects of your divorce.  Divorce is almost never a “win” or “lose.”  Prepare for some give and take.

There are times to make a stand.  The family law professionals at Burke & Domercq have extensive trial experience.  We are fully prepared to make a stand on your behalf for any matter of principle which requires it.

The Cost of Divorce is Directly Related to the Amount of Disagreement Between You and Your Spouse. The financial and emotional cost of your divorce is directly tied to the ability to resolve areas of disagreement between you and your former spouse.  We will help to prepare you for how to best initially negotiate directly (the least expensive path) for what you most want.  Mediation is a private, timely and cost-effective medium for resolving differences and reaching agreement.

Communicate with Caution at All Times. The Court will be closely monitoring all communications between you and your former spouse. The Judge in your case is watching to see if you have the ability to effectively communicate and this forms the basis of the Judge’s perception of you as well as your ability to co-parent if you have children.  The rule of thumb is fairly straight forward: If you’re not in a calm state, don’t communicate! This applies to all voicemails, emails, texts, social media posts and personal interactions.  You have time.  Put your cell phone down and walk away from the computer.  Assume everything you write or speak to your ex will wind up in open Court for all the world to hear/see.

One of the most important ways to make the process of divorce in Carlsbad a little easier is to work with the proven legal team at Burke & Domercq.  We’re here to advocate for your interests and guide you through this journey to accomplish your goals and objectives.
