Getting divorced is one of the difficult phases of life. This is a major transformation when you are not sure of certain things and at the same time too sure of some other.
Yes, when you have made up to divorce your spouse who might have been with you for many years now, you might falter at many junctures of your divorce process.
Things you must know about your divorce
Hiring a Lawyer: It is sole discretion of an individual whether he or she wants to hire a lawyer or an attorney or not. If so, who should be hired and on what basis is again a matter of discretion to be applied by the hirer. The Attorney and the client have to make mutual discussions to see if they are comfortable with each other or not. They also have to understand the chemistry between them as this could be a major factor in settling down the case.
Filing a case: Whether the client wants to file a case or he wants to hold it back for some time, is another choice coming solely from the client only. Deciding the timing to file, and the nature of case is a matter of choice which depends on the proponents wish.
Disclosing facts: Oftentimes, a client may not be willing to disclose every fact about his or her past relationship to the attorney or even the court. And the attorney may fear that in the absence of “strong logic” the case could turn out to be weak and they may even land up losing the same. But, until a client is not sure or not willing to disclose certain facts about the relationship, no attorney can take an edge.
Claiming for support or alimony: There are cases when a client does not want any monetary support from the ex-spouse or him or she even does not want to go for any kind of asset settlement. If so, this could not be pursued merely because someone other than the client wishes to do so.
Settling the case: Whether a divorce would be settled outside the court or the client wants to face a trial in the courtroom is again a sole discretion of the client. Many a cases are reported when the spouse doesn’t want to enter the court room and they want to settle things peacefully and in a short time too. They may opt to do so outside the court.
Getting divorced is actually a pain, but as a client you must know about your rights and make sure that you done get carried away by an attorney. You have to consult one, but that certainly does not bind you to abide by every suggestion forwarded by him. You have to make your decision and apply your discretion so that you don’t malign the process dirty and add on to your misery. S, think about your wishes and go for the path which is less cumbersome for you.
