Being involved in a divorce case can be a highly-charged emotional experience. In any given case, the divorcing couple will need to address potentially contentious issues such as property division, alimony, child custody and child support, among others. When emotions run high, it is important to stay focused on the legal process and the long-term implications of the case on the rest of your life. Avoiding impulsive decisions in a divorce case can pay off long after the case is settled.
In order to avoid such impulsive decisions, it can help to try to picture what your life will look like once the divorce case is in the rearview mirror. What will your living arrangements be? If you made the impulsive decision to move out of the family home during the divorce process, for example, that may have an impact on such arrangements.
Or, what about your financial situation post-divorce? If you made impulsive financial decisions leading up to or during the divorce process, you can expect such decisions to rear their ugly heads during the property division part of your divorce case.
