What to do and What not to do If You’re Getting Divorced

Getting divorced is not fun. It can be one of the most stressful times in men and women’s lives. Even in amicable situations, men and women tend to find themselves being stressed out. Divorce involves an emotional break up as well as a financial break up. Issues involving custody and visitation of children can be gut wrenching. There are things that you should do and that you should avoid doing that may make your divorce less antagonistic and stressful.

Don’t Do The Following

Don’t decide to take a job in another state or move out of the country until all aspects of your divorce are resolved. Avoid violating temporary custody or temporary visitation arrangements. If you don’t comply with the temporary custody or visitation arrangements, you may not be able to obtain permanent custody. Do not hide your assets, or lend your assets to your friends. You’ll find this is counter productive and may lead to large legal fees to straighten out these issues.

Hire An Attorney

Only a fool would represent himself or herself in a divorce. The laws in the State of New York are complicated and the legal system is full of problems for the unweary.

Things To Do When You’re Divorced

Try to be reasonable! Take into consideration your spouses point of view. Cooperate with your lawyer and the court. Be prepared to make reasonable compromises.

You should provide child support to your children during the divorce process. Divorce is a process where adults break up a relationship. Children are the innocent victims in divorces. Try to avoid having your children pick sides as to who is right and who is wrong.

When you’re visiting with the children, let your spouse know where the children are. See to it that the children can maintain reasonable telephone communication with the other parent when they are in your company.

Create a list of your assets and property and disclose them all to the other side. If you seek to hide your assets or engage in financial deception, you can end up litigating your divorce again and again in the future.

Maintain an appropriate level of communication with your lawyer. Don’t be afraid to ask him or her questions. The lawyer works for you! His or her job is to help you. If you feel you do not understand the divorce process, have the attorney explain it to you.

Halle Berry’s Custody Issues

Halle Berry was married to Gabriel Aubry. They have a daughter named Nahia. Halle Berry is an oscar winning actress. She has been engaged in a custody fight over her two year old daughter Nahia.

Halle has dropped out of a broadway play due to custody issues. She had been scheduled to make her broadway debut in September. The play was called the Mountain Top. Samuel L. Jackson is portraying Dr. Martin Luther King in the play. Halle was to portray a maid at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis where King was the night before he was shot.

Nasty Custody Battle

Halle has been involved in a nasty custody battle with her ex partner Gabriel Aubry. The couple initially split up in 2010.

Halle Pulls Out of Movie Entitled New Year’s Eve

Halle Berry has also dropped out of a movie entitled New Year’s Eve. She blamed her pending custody litigation involving her daughter for her dropping out of this film.

She has recently claimed she has been unable to amicably resolve her custody issues with the child’s father Gabriel. A representative for Halle Berry has stated “she has serious concerns for her daughter’s well being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her.” Is the real issue that Nahia’s father Gabriel Aubry is the parent who spends the majority of the time meeting the child’s needs while Halle pursues her career. It appears that Gabriel spends a majority of the time taking care of this child, while Halle is off making movies and appearing in other productions.
