Post-divorce mistakes to avoid

On Behalf of | Feb 15, 2016 | Divorce |

Millions of families in the United States are dealing with divorce, and the numbers seem to be on the rise as each year passes. If you’re currently going through a divorce or have just finalized your divorce it is important to avoid certain things that can make your divorce situation worse. We’re going to discuss some things to avoid after a divorce so that you can start to move on and avoid going back to court.

  • A child needs both of their parents in their life, do not try and sabotage the relationship between the child and the other parent. This is never a good idea, and your child will suffer.
  • Again, if children are involved it is important to have a parenting plan in place with your ex. The best route is to focus on what is in the best interest of the children.
  • Do not ignore court orders because you can find yourself back in court.
  • Make sure you are paying your child support on time each month. It’s important to make sure that your child support payments are accounted for, so we always recommend using a state-run agency or a third-party service to keep track of all child support payments so you do not end up back in court.
  • The sweetest revenge is happily moving on, so try and move on, do not seek revenge over your ex. It is not easy to move on a life a happy life if you’re holding onto anger.
  • Be a support system for the children, not the other way around. Your child is not an adult and should not feel like they need to take care of you.
