Does Your Behavior Affect Divorce Proceedings?

No one will claim that getting as divorce is a walk in the park. If you have filed for a fault divorce, you may be harboring some particularly negative feelings towards your soon-to-be-former spouse. Even if the divorce is no-fault and uncontested, the thought of ending a marriage to someone you have spent a significant amount of time with can be depressing. One of the most important things to remember is that even if you are hurt, angry, or confused, you must put your best foot forward in court.

Tips for Acting Properly in Divorce Court

Some people use their divorce proceedings as a way to get back at their spouse for things that occurred during the marriage. They may make false accusations to change the outcome of a child custody agreement or try to hide important financial assets to deny their spouse what is legally theirs. When you or your spouse behaves badly during your divorce, you may find the court ruling against you.

When you are getting divorced, you follow these tips:

  • Always dress in a professional and modest manner when appearing before a judge
  • Be aware of how your manner of dress and speaking may convey information
  • Leave the children out of the litigious courtroom proceedings
  • Refrain from using language that can be considered emotional, loud, or offensive
  • Do not directly speak with your spouse during the divorce process

You need to consider a divorce as you would any other legal scenario, except you are fighting on behalf of your family. By setting a good example and showing the judge that you are an upstanding citizen that is worthy of a fair divorce settlement, you can find yourself in the court's good graces.
