Protect yourself when you are facing a contentious divorce

A divorce can bring out the worst in people. If you don't want this to happen to you, it is imperative that you take steps to prepare yourself so that you can focus on being calm and collected during the process. We know that you have some concerns about what is going to happen during the divorce.

During your divorce, you have to make sure that your interests are being kept at the forefront of the case. This isn't always easy because your ex will have the same goal in mind for his or her side of the case. We know that this presents a conundrum that could be difficult to handle.

There are several things that you can do to protect yourself during a divorce. First, you need to decide what points related to the settlement you are going to maintain your ground about in the divorce. Make a list of these so that you can keep it handy to help you stay focused as you go through each step of the process.

Second, decide how much you are willing to compromise on the negotiable points. You should remember to leave room for the negotiations when you decide on your starting point. We can help you to determine a beginning place that leaves you some wiggle room.

Third, think about what other factors you need to settle. This can include child custody and support payments. Find out what the Texas law says about these points so that you can determine what you need to do for your case.
