Mistakes to avoid during your North Carolina divorce

Getting a divorce is nearly always a painful process for the spouses and even for extended family members. Sometimes, the pain and stress of divorcing can make both parties anxious to get the divorce over and done. However, rushing through a divorce can lead to mistakes, which can have a lasting effect on both parties. It is important to be cautious and gain an understanding of the legalities of getting divorced to help you and your spouse move forward more easily.

In order for both parties to have the best chance of emerging from divorce fairly, it might be necessary to engage a divorce attorney in your area, but this is just the first step. The following section contains just a few mistakes you and your spouse should avoid while you are getting divorced.

-- Signing unread documents: You should not only read all of your divorce documents, you should study them carefully. If the papers contain items or language you do not understand, be sure to have your divorce lawyer explain them to you.

-- Not learning about divorce's tax consequences: Even North Carolina citizens with modest means can suffer tax-related consequences after divorce. Do not sign a settlement without fully understanding any possible future tax consequences.

-- Not getting full financial information: For a divorce settlement to be completely fair, both parties need to review all financial information including debts and assets. Divorce attorneys can often serve as a helpful resource during this task and others.

-- Underestimating the full scope of divorce: Many couples approach divorce thinking they have everything worked out only to find themselves constantly disagreeing. One of the best things both of you can do is to understand that unsettled issues may still arise.

To learn more about the many mistakes you could make during a divorce, consider seeking advice from a legal professional serving the North Carolina region. The Graham, Nuckolls, Connor Law Firm of Greenville is a great place to start.
