What are the benefits of the high road in a Carlsbad divorce? Did you realize that maintaining a civil, productive relationship with your former spouse throughout your divorce can:
- Improve the likelihood of accomplishing your goals for the divorce
- Reduce the emotional burden
- Substantially reduce the cost of your divorce
- Help you to complete the divorce in a shorter timeframe and move forward in a more productive manner
One of the benefits of the high road in a Carlsbad divorce is it helps you to protect the things which are important to you and accomplish your goals. Maintaining a level of calm professionalism and respect in all communications invites the same in return. It may also surprise you to know that the Judge in your case is carefully observing how each party comports themselves. Expect the Judge to read every email or text you send to your former spouse and hear every voicemail. These often become evidence in San Diego divorce cases. This is especially important in how the Judge evaluates your suitability to co-parent and share child custody.
Maintaining at least a neutral discourse with your former spouse reduces the emotional burden throughout the process. It also reduces the likelihood that an area of disagreement between the two of you will explode into an expensive, contentious and time-consuming legal battle.
It may also surprise you to learn that one of the greatest benefits of the high road in a Carlsbad divorce is that it will substantially reduce the cost of your divorce and the time it takes to complete the process. The factors of “time” and “cost” in a divorce case are directly related to the amount of disagreement between the parties and their ability to work through their differences to reach an agreement. If the parties cannot reach an agreement, the Judge in their case must decide for them.
The high road facilitates resolution of all issues in a divorce either through negotiation or mediation. It also reduces costs after your divorce. Many substantial studies have shown agreements reached in negotiation or mediation are much more likely to be followed by the parties after the divorce. This reduces the likelihood of time consuming and expensive post-decree litigation.
