10 Common Mistakes In Divorce (And How To Avoid Them)

10 Common Mistakes In Divorce (And How To Avoid Them) 


Here’s how to start over the right way.


The stakes are high in a divorce. From divvying up assets to determining child custody arrangements, there’s a lot on the line during the legal process — and a lot of ways to screw it up.


To help you come out of your divorce with the best possible results, we asked experts of every stripe — divorce attorneys, mediators, divorced people themselves  — to share the most crippling mistakes they’ve seen couples make during the divorce process and in the early stages of co-parenting. See what they had to say below.


The mistake: Taking legal advice from just anyone.  


“Not all divorce advice should be treated equally. People mean well and believe that offering you advice on how to navigate your divorce is a way to support you. But you need to be careful and remember that not all advice is created equal. Your attorney is the best source for advice for legal issues in the same way your accountant is the best source of advice for tax issues. In the same way you’d ask your realtor to tell you the value of your marital residence, your lawyer is the best professional to speculate on how many years of alimony the judge may award you. That’s not saying an attorney’s advice is beyond question, but if you need a second opinion, direct your concerns to an equally qualified legal expert.” — James Sexton, New York City-based divorce attorney
