#5. Listen to Your Lawyer — Not Your Friends
Each divorce case is different, so just because a lawyer told one of your buddies to do something and it worked out in his case doesn’t mean it’ll work out for you.
#6. Assume You’re Being Recorded
Keeping your emotions in check is way easier said than done, especially if you weren’t the one to initiate the divorce. So just assume you’re being recorded every time you speak to your soon-to-be ex, okay Mel Gibson? And then assume that those recordings will be played in front of the person deciding the terms of your divorce. If you can’t talk to her civilly, then don’t talk to her at all. Just let the lawyers take are of things.
