Additional Essential Divorce TipsDivorce Tip #5 – Try to Make Logical, Rational Decisions and Know When to Seek Emotional Support.
No Time for Mistakes
While all of these divorce tips are helpful, the single most important tip is to contact Scottsdale Divorce Lawyer Karen Schoenau when you are ready to file for divorce.

Another extremely helpful tip that can facilitate the divorce process is focusing on making decisions based on rational reasons, rather than based on bitterness or emotions. The reason that this can be so crucial in divorce cases is that, when people act out of spite, revenge or other emotional states, it’s far more likely that:

  • Their divorce case will erupt in contentious disputes.
  • The cost and duration of their divorce will increase substantially.
  • They will ultimately not be satisfied with the outcome of their divorce because the courts (and the divorce process) are not designed to be systems for exacting revenge.

Because, however, divorce can bring up a lot of powerful emotions, this divorce tip also involves knowing when to look for outside emotional support – maybe from family or a therapist – if or when emotions may be taking over logical decision making.

Divorce Tip #6 – Remember the big Picture.

During the divorce process, it can be easy to get mired in the various details, disputes and motions of the proceedings. However, taking a step back and keeping the bigger picture in mind can be crucial to helping you:

  • Make the right decisions as your case proceeds.
  • Take the high road when being vengeful may be all too tempting.

For instance, while you may be tempted try to get back at your ex by fighting to deny him or her custody of your children, remembering the bigger picture – and the fact that your children’s need to spend time with their other parent trump your needs for revenge – can be the driving force to help you make better decisions for everyone involved in your divorce case.

★★★★★
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
