SIX BIGGEST MISTAKES IN DIVORCE
THROWING IN THE TOWEL
"I just want out. I just want to get this over with. I am worn down or scared of the process."
TAKING THE MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY APPROACH
"I don't want to listen to you because I'm right. Or I'm so angry at you, I won't budge."
BETTING ON ANOTHER RELATIONSHIP
"My new partner will take care of me. I just want out so I don't care about asset division."
ALLOWING OTHERS TO MAKE YOUR DECISIONS
"Everything will come out in court & the judge will make the decision! My sister told me to..."
WANTING GUARANTEES & CERTAINTY
I can't move forward with this settlement because it doesn't contain any guarantees."
NOT GETTING INFORMATION FROM ENOUGH QUALIFIED RESOURCES
"I will just ask my friends who have been divorced or just count on my family."
