Oklahoma City Divorce Lawyer - 4 Tips For Saving Money On Divorce

Author : Matt Ingham

Let us be honest with you up front, divorce can be lengthy and it can be very expensive. The goods news is that if you think logically and plan ahead, you can save hundreds and maybe even thousands of dollars throughout the process.
If your divorce is like most, it is contested. A constested divorce is where the husband and the wife have unresolved issues between them. The unresolved issues may include but are not limited to: division of ownership of property, division of responsiblity for debt, and custody arrangements of the children.
For spouses who have unresolved issues between them, the natural tendency is to 'lawyer up'. Be advised, 'lawyering up' could end up costing you thousands of dollars in unneccessary attorney fees and could waste months of your time in litigation at the court house. Before you 'lawyer up', read the rest of this article. Below is a list of four tips for saving money on divorce. Our hope is that you will read the tips, familiarize yourself with them, and then implement them into your divorce situation.
Tip #1 - Keep The Kids Out Of It. If there are children involved, one of the riskiest things you could do is discuss the details of the divorce with the children. Whenever you discuss the details with the children, you are taking the risk that one of the children will misinterpret your statements (which children often do) and then relay the misinterpreted version of your statements to your spouse. Take our advice, discussing the details of the divorce with your children is a bad idea.
Tip #2 - Open A Channel Of Communication With Your Spouse. If you and your spouse are like most divorcing couples, then you probably do not want to see each other and you probably do not want to speak with each other. That silence though, could end up costing each of you hundreds and maybe even thousands of dollars on unneccessary attorney fees.
Take our advice and open a channel of communication between you and your spouse. Doing so does not necessarily mean that the two of you have to be friends, it just means that the two of you need to have good enough communication between you to be able to discuss the unresolved issues.
Tip #3 - Try To Settle Outside Of Court. The quicker you settle the unresolved issues, the quicker the divorce will be finalized. Once you have heeded tip number two and have opened a channel of communication with your spouse, try to discuss settlement. With a little bit of luck, you and your spouse will be able to settle outside of court without either of you having to 'lawyer up'.
Tip #4 - Do Not Be Petty. Once you have opened a channel of communication and once you have begun to discuss settlement, do not slow the settlement process down by demanding that petty issues be addressed. Again, keep in mind, the goal is to settle your divorce outside of court without having to 'lawyer up'. When discussing settlement with your spouse, remember the acronym K.I.S. - Keep It Simple.
