Choosing your battles carefully and being open to compromise are two more important divorce tips that can facilitate the process. Contact us for the best divorce representation.

From a logistical point of view, a very helpful divorce tip that can facilitate the upcoming divorce process is to get a handle on your marital assets versus debt (i.e., your marital financial situation). As you do this, here are a few important things to keep in mind:

  • Make copies of all important financial documents – These can include bank statements, tax documents, mortgage loan documents, insurance documents, etc.
  • Create an inventory of your marital property – This can be very helpful later in the event that an ex tries to hide any assets in the divorce case.
  • Consider closing joint lines of credit – As you take stock of your martial debt, you may want to consider closing your joint lines of credit so that your ex doesn’t have an opportunity to run up your marital debt at some point in the future.
Divorce Tip #4 – Choose Your Battles Carefully and try to be Open to Compromise.

It’s not uncommon for divorce cases to erupt in disputes, particularly if the marriage ended on bad terms. While avoiding disputes in divorce can be an effective way to reduce the costs and duration of the process:

  • You should, of course, fight for what is important to you (after all, this is your divorce). For instance, if you are intent on getting custody or visitation with your children, you should absolutely fight for this.
  • You should, however, also be willing to compromise (if and when possible) on issues that are less important to you.

By being open to compromise, you can:

  • Resolve some of the issues of your divorce faster
  • Potentially inspire the spirit of compromise in your ex, as if you show that you are willing to give up a little to advance the divorce process, your ex may also be willing to do so on issues that are important to you.

We will uncover some final important divorce tips in the upcoming conclusion to this blog series. Don’t forget to check it out!

Client Reviews
Karen is highly respected in the legal community. She is effective and thorough. Karen just keeps going regardless of the odds.
Karen was extremely helpful setting up my petition for conciliation. She is by far the most knowledgeable attorney regarding the necessary paperwork, how to file the petition and where it has to be submitted. She listened intently when I was describing my situation and intentions. She was very responsive to my questions and request. She is trustworthy and diligent . I would recommend her to anyone having marital issues. Mark
Very high customer/client considerate. We found Karen when we were forced to leave another Phoenix lawyer due to his bad advice and lack of interest to help us. We were in Phoenix for six days from Michigan with nothing happening but a high wasted expense. Karen and her firm took us in and solved our issue with the courts etc. in two and a half days. Karen’s professionalism with us was very cost effective/productive. If we would have found her first, we would have saved thousands of dollars. Her interest for us was very high. She returned every call. She knew every answer to our questions. She did this for us with a death in her family. She left for a funeral and made sure we were treated with the same professionalism from her firm to finish up. I recommend Karen and her firm with very high satisfaction. Our case is custody with one parent in prison. We will return to Phoenix someday with interests for the child and his parent, if needed. Karen will be our top choice. Nolan
Karen and Bonita are wonderful!! I know that the word "wonderful" is used a lot, but the team they make and the work they did for me can only be described as WONDERFUL!! Yes there where ups and downs in my case, but that is the system and Karen along with Bonita guided and taught me as "WE" went through it together. Karen’s easy going manner and her knowledge really helped me with the emotional part of my divorce. I used the team of Karen and Bonita both times I needed to go to court with my ex and had results that were best for my little girl. Some times I did not get what I wanted, but it was what my daughter needed. Looking back at my case, I made the right choice and would do it again in a heart beat!! Jim
Karen was extremely supportive during a very trying time in our lives. She helped me to put things in perspective and think positive when I was overwhelmed. She is very knowledgeable about the laws pertaining to grandparents rights and the rights of the parents and knew how to provide the appropriate laws pertaining to the situation we were in. I am so grateful for her expertise and guidance. She proved to be very aggressive when she needed to be but was also supportive to my and my children. I would recommend her to anyone in a similar situation. Deanna
