Divorce Do’s & Don’ts

For anyone who is going through a divorce, the process can be emotionally trying, to say the least. As a result, many people engage in behavior which could potentially harm them in the long run, or fail to take proper steps to protect themselves and their property.

At The Law Offices of O’Toole & Gunteski, our experienced Monmouth County divorce lawyers can help you understand the fine details of what you should and should'nt do during a divorce. To help you protect yourself early in the process, we've compiled this list of divorce do’s and don’ts.

The Do’s of Divorce

Do attempt to cooperate as much as possible with your spouse. If you hold on to unreasonable demands or refuse to compromise, you’ll be headed toward a longer, messier divorce.

Do support your children as much as possible during the divorce, and in the time following. Divorce is especially tough on kids, and they need to be able to love both parents without guilt or shame.

Do ask your attorney if you have any questions or concerns. An experienced divorce lawyer can answer your questions knowledgably, as they have handled many divorce cases.

The Don’ts of Divorce

Don’t let your emotions take over. We fully understand that this is much easier said than done, but emotionally-charged decisions almost never work out in your favor.

Don't violate any court-ordered visitation or custody arrangements. If your goal is to increase your custody rights, violating a court order will likely have the opposite effect.

Don't attempt to navigate the complex divorce process alone. An experienced Monmouth County divorce lawyer will be your guide, and will help you achieve results in your best interests.
