When working with divorce clients, most attorneys focus on strategies designed to help their client win their case. This blog focuses on strategies for not losing. Even though every divorce is unique, the fact is that people tend to behave in similar ways under similar circumstances.
The lawyer's instruction to avoid messaging wars with their spouse during divorce would seem to be a no-brainer. But what frequently happens is one spouse sends 99 nasty message to the other. Finally, the spouse that received the 99 messages can't take it anymore and sends 1 response message. Now the judge looks at the messages and says "Look at the 2 of them, they both engage in this bad behavior."
Keep your powder dry. Don't engage. Don't commit Divorce Suicide.
