Even though divorce is often seen as a failure, there are things that both parties can do to achieve some success in the process. Because many divorces are initiated as the result of heated arguments, anger can cause spouses to act without thinking ahead to the consequences of their actions. The attorneys at Green & Metcalf of Vero Beach, FL, have seen what can happen when people make decisions with emotion versus logic with results hardly ever what they intended.
“With a divorce, there are a lot of things you can do to improve your chances of a positive outcome, but there are also things people do that can negatively impact the result as well. Our area of expertise lies in helping our clients make the better choice for the outcome, so they can begin the healing process as soon as possible,” said Norman Green, Senior Partner at Green & Metcalf of Vero Beach, FL.
Among the many things that can weigh against either party in a divorce is sending any kind of negative correspondence to the other party. In addition, lack of financial planning, employment consideration and living arrangements for the future can also affect the case both during the divorce and after the court makes its decision.
“When dealing with the process of divorce, we encourage our clients to be as non-confrontational as possible with their soon-to-be ex-spouse, and to be prepared for the personal and professional changes they will face as they go through the divorce proceedings, Green said.
