My spouse will be fair and cooperative

Posted on : May 14, 2013 |

My spouse will be fair and cooperative.

There’s nothing like a divorce to make people who once were civil and kind erupt into all sorts of irrational behavior. If you are preparing for divorce, keep this myth at the forefront of your mind: My spouse will be fair and cooperative.

Truth: Divorce is an emotionally agitating experience. People who are usually reasonable can often become unfair and extraordinarily uncooperative.

You would be shocked to hear the lengths to which disgruntled spouses will go to make their partners absolutely miserable.

From dropping cell phones into the toilet to turning off clock radios to make it look like the other spouse was negligent in getting up and taking the kids to school, once civil individuals can decline into unbelievably unkind and selfish behaviors.

When you rely on your spouse to be fair, cooperative and even ethical, you may be putting yourself in a disadvantageous position.

If you have observed this kind of unreasonable behavior from your spouse, it is important to have good legal counsel on your side to protect your reputation and advise you as to how to gather evidence that shows support for your character.

During a consultation, we can help you understand how to document such events effectively so they can later be brought to light in your case.

If seeking legal counsel for your divorce is something you’re still considering, please pick up the phone and give us a call.
