Common mistakes can be costly at divorce trial

Getting divorced can understandably be a stressful situation, both financially and emotionally. However, by making the right moves, those who are going through divorce can come out as financially secure as possible. Here are a few common mistakes to avoid at divorce trial in California, as they often end up costing those who make them.

First, failure to go to court with an attorney can be a major mistake. Attorneys are aware of what judges like and dislike, as well as court procedures and proper court etiquette. As a result, they can guide their clients through the often unknown territory of divorce trial and help them to be prepared for what will take place during each step of their divorce proceedings.

Another common divorce trial mistake involves making demands that are unreasonable. For instance, perhaps someone wants alimony and decides to request $1,000 each month just so that he or she can guarantee getting $500 every month. This may end up working against the person by causing him or her to appear overreaching and greedy. Making a proposal that is reasonable may be more effective in the end.

Not every couple has to go to divorce trial. Many couples avoid court intrusion by trying to resolve their divorce issues, such as property division and alimony, at the negotiation table instead. This can be less stressful, costly and more time consuming than going to trial. However, whether a couple chooses to engage in negotiations or litigate their divorce, an attorney in California can provide a spouse with the guidance he or she needs to achieve the most personally favorable outcome given the circumstances surrounding the marital breakup.
