Jul 1, 2008
Given a choice I suspect that all of us would like to get married and live happily ever after. Unfortunately this isn't always possible and marriages break down and end in divorce. Unfortunately for you if you are going through a divorce it is quite likely that the woman you shared your life and dreams with is now trying to get every cent she can out of you. Here are some tips that may help you avoid a bad Divorce settlement.

1. This may come as a shock but lawyers want to make as much money out of your divorce as possible, this is their business. If they can make the divorce stretch out over a long time they will because they will earn more money. Find a lawyer that has been recommended to you. But remember the lawyer who got cousin Bobby off of that DUI charge may not be the one who should be handling your divorce. Find a divorce specialist with a good reputation.

2. Get your private and financial records into storage where only you have access to them .NOW! Also get a private post box where you can receive private mail

3. Cancel your credit cards and close all joint accounts you have with your wife.

4. This may sound like a strange one and it may be the last thing you want to do but keep some lines of communication open with your wife. It may that one day she contacts you and says "hey let's get this over with quickly and get on with our lives... what do you want to settle quickly" Additionally small problems can quickly escalate to major problems if everything has to go through a lawyer.

5. If you have kids it's important that you speak to them as often as possible. Reassure them that the divorce has nothing to do with them. Do everything to stop them feeling like they have been abandoned.

6. In court the written word is far more powerful that hearsay. Make sure that you keep all correspondence from your wife and her representatives. No matter how angry a letter makes you get don't destroy it.

7. Be Nice! Don't start spreading rumors about your wife or even slander her to your best friend. Things have a way of getting back to wives. If she finds out you've been saying nasty things even if they are true she will use it against you.

8. Stay calm, even if your wife is aggressive avoid arguments. There is no need to be aggressive once again it will look bad and you will lose out in the long term.

9. You will need some emotional support, don't be afraid to use friends and family to help you through this difficult time.

Divorces are not nice and they can get very nasty. Your wife will unfortunately be in the driving seat when it comes to a settlement. But with the right help and advice you can get what you want from the divorce not what she wants you to have. There are several really good guides available on the internet that will help ensure that you gee the settlement you want. Hunt them down!
