Each case has an upside and a downside.

People often let emotions rule during divorce – but that can be a huge mistake, according to Erin Clarey, Charlotte divorce lawyer with Rosen Law Firm. A little self-restraint can go a long way: refraining from expressing a desire to get revenge on an estranged spouse, giving an attorney suggestions based on unqualified information and keeping personal views private when it comes to sensitive situations will have a positive effect on any case.

“Never say never. Never say that you will not pay any spousal support or that your spouse can have everything; never say that your spouse is going to get nothing, either,” says Lockwood. “Remember that your attorney is there to counsel and advise you, and help you move forward.”

Divorce Talk Radio’s podcasts, airing live each Wednesday, are information-packed episodes to help divorcing couples understand each other, the process of divorce and avoid common pitfalls that can harm their cases. Recent episodes have covered new studies linking DNA and divorce and an informative bit on how to calculate alimony.
