Do you know what is being done in your community to protect the citizens from crime? Do you have a crime-watch program? Is there a community website that lists the current investigations and events that may have recently occurred? Law enforcement officials can only do so much when it comes to protecting a community. If your community is not active in protecting itself, crime rates could rise and many residents could find themselves the target or victim of crimes. Visit my blog to find out what you can do as a community to lower crime rates and help the law enforcement officials do their jobs.
After your spouse tells you they want a divorce, you might team up with an excellent lawyer so that you can get what is rightfully yours in court. Unfortunately, mistakes on your end could make your case more difficult to prove, destroying your chances for a fair settlement. Here are two ways to avoid complicating your divorce case:
1: Don't Get Greedy
You spent twelve years supporting your husband and taking care of the household while he worked his way through med school, so why shouldn't you get a few more perks when it comes to your settlement? Unfortunately, getting greedy during the distribution of assets could make things much more difficult in the courtroom. Here are a few mistakes you might be tempted to make, and how they could hurt you in the end:
To avoid trouble in the courtroom, try to be generous with your ex-spouse. Be open and honest about your assets, time commitments, and plans. Although it might be painful to put it all out there one last time, being honest will help your lawyer to negotiate a fair settlement in a timely manner.
2: Stay Calm and Rational
Feelings can get hurt quickly during a divorce, but getting emotional might prompt you to make rash decisions that could hurt your case. Here are a few problems that you might cause if you let your feelings get the best of you:
Although divorce can be a painful process, try to stay calm and rational. Talk with your divorce lawyer about what you should say and who you should say it to, and ask for advice if you are in the public eye. If you need to talk with someone about how you are feeling, consider meeting with a therapist instead of venting to your friends or family. In addition to protecting your privacy, they might be able to teach you coping mechanisms so that you can handle the stress.
Making the right decisions during your divorce might help your lawyer to speed things along and get you what you deserve.Share
