Going through a divorce is not an easy time for either a man or a woman. A recent AARP study showed that women initiate two-thirds of divorces.
The following are mistakes that men make during the divorce process:
- Leaving the family home – means you will have less time with your children and will double your expenses because now you need a place of your own. Don’t ignore your children; make sure you see them as often as possible.
- Losing your temper – Because many men don’t see divorce coming, when they are informed of it, they get angry and lose their temper. It is important to stay cool and collect – regardless of what your spouse says or does.
- Concealing information – is not a good thing. Most of the time, your concealed information will come to light.
There is no need for you to get the ‘short end of the stick’. If you follow the above tips, it will greatly increase the chances of a settlement that is fair.
Finally, make sure you hire an experienced and knowledgeable attorney. Make sure it’s someone you feel comfortable with and trust because you will be talking about sensitive personal information.
