- Divorce Tips
- Divorce Blogs
Keep The Peace – Keeping the peace between the parties can be the difference between spending a few dollars or paying off the attorney’s school loan
Don’t Move Out Of the House – The house is usually the biggest asset to negotiate. If you’re not in fear for your safety, do not move out of the house before speaking with an attorney.
Maintain the Status Quo – Don’t make drastic changes to your lifestyle such as buying a Corvette or cutting off your spouse from the steam of income. Guys DON’T buy the girlfriend diamonds since you are still considered married until the judge signs off on the final order.
Keep the Kids Out of it – NEVER use the kids as a tool to hurt the other party, and DON’T put them in the middle. Let’s let our kids grow with the love of both parents.
Stay Off Social Media – Don’t post anything you wouldn’t want your mother or the judge to see. Set your social media settings to private away from public view and make sure not to delete anything once the case has been filed without the advice of an attorney.
The divorce process can be overwhelming. While there are many stressors involved, taking control of finances is well known to be one of the most burdensome tasks. Thus, it is essential for you to take a few steps to ensure that you are setting yourself up for success once the divorce is final. The 5 Steps to Help Financially prepare for a divorce include:
- Making copies of financial records
- Obtaining a credit report
- Getting your own accounts
- Getting your debt under control
- Starting a budget
While these five steps do not cover every aspect of the financial preparation necessary to gain independence post-divorce, the steps are a great start to become in control of your own money and move to living with only one income.
Most people feel that the only option in their divorce case is to go to court; that is not the case whatsoever. Most often, cases are settled in mediation without having to go to court. There are a variety of reasons why mediation is most beneficial in divorce cases. The 5 main reasons to mediate vs. going to trial are as follows:
- Some courts require mediation
- You retain control over the outcome
- Less costly than litigation
- Privacy concerns
These reasons show how valuable mediation is in divorce cases and why people should keep an open mind when it comes to settling their divorce case without going to trial.
Let’s be honest: emotions are high during the divorce process. With this, you will possibly think and act in ways they never thought possible. To have as smooth of a divorce process as possible, it is essential that you actively work to keep a level head. The 5 main things to avoid during the divorce process include:
- Don’t involve the kids
- Don’t make unreasonable demands
- Don’t be adversarial
- Don’t refuse to communicate
- Don’t spend a lot of money or incur a lot of debts
While these all seem like obvious things to avoid, emotions will bring the worst out of you. By following these guidelines, your divorce process is likely to be much smoother than those who act in a way that leads to animosity between parties.
Our Client Testimonials
The decision to end my 25-year marriage was not an easy one, but hiring the Ramos Law Group was. From the initial consultation to the execution of the Divorce Decree everyone at the firm displayed the utmost professionalism and I was treated as if I was their only client. My attorney Lindsey, always provided precise legal guidance, was usually one step ahead of the opposing counsel, and had a superb understanding of how things would play out in the court room. Additionally, whenever my case needed a little extra horsepower, Mary provided that "surge" to keep things on track.

"I received excellent advice and representation from Ms. Lindsey Lewis. She kept me updated at every step of the process, and I never felt as if my case was set aside. I would hire The Ramos Law Group in the future. "
"I started my divorce with a lawyer who was not very responsive. My divorce case was complicated and needed more laborious scrutiny. Since the case was not moving forward I had to switch lawyers. Made the switch to Ramos Law group. Since the very first day Mary and her team have been very efficient and meticulous. Since the case was complicated the team had to go through myriads of pages in discovery. I was pleased with the legal team that helped us handle the paperwork in a very timely manner. All my questions were answered very promptly. The relay of information was easy with their software system. We finally had a law firm that we could trust. My divorce was finalized and I only have Mary and her team to thank for going through a difficult divorce. I would highly recommend the Ramos law group for their help and support for getting my life back on track. "
