Would you rather let a Court, who barely knows you, decide your future or would you rather swallow your pride and decide yourself? Divorce is a very emotional process. The well known epithet that a self-represented litigant has a fool for a client, rings ever more true in divorce. You must have the help of an attorney to help guide to a resolution which makes sense for you even if it requires you to swallow your pride.
When you are involved in the most intimate issues of your life it is hard to make objective decisions. Never agree to something that would hurt you in the long-run just to get to a settlement, but be reasonable. Being in limbo for potentially years not only hurts you emotionally but stymies your progress in life. It also hurts your children who are put in a place of uncertainty.
Here are a few key points to consider when you decide if a settlement is right for you:
- Will you be able to support yourself and or your children with this settlement?
- Are you settling out of fear or based on rational decisions?
- Will this settlement be a good decision 5 years later? 10 years later?
- Have you laid out the key things you are not willing to compromise over and have you compromised?
- Do you feel at peace?
