When going through a divorce and child custody case, it can be hard to keep your emotions in check. You end up saying things that you should have kept to yourself and doing things that never should have been done in the first place. All of these things could end up making the situation worse for you and your case. To ensure the best possible outcome, make sure you don't make one of these crucial mistakes.
Avoid Posting Inappropriate Content on Social Media Sites
In the age of Facebook, Twitter, and other social media networks, it seems as if everywhere you turn people are making posts about things going on in their lives. However, if ever there was a time to keep your comments to yourself, now is it. By posting inappropriate comments online, you are giving the court the reason it needs to show you aren't a fit parent, and that's the last thing you want. You never know who might be feeding information to the other party.
Don't Buy Expensive Items
If you have a hearing coming up pertaining to child support, you shouldn't be spending a fortune on clothing, trips and other luxuries that you really don't need. Showing up with something expensive is going to show the courts that you can afford to pay the support they are requesting of you. No one is going to believe you are broke when you are throwing your money around like crazy.
Refrain from Blogging about Your Case
With so many people having their own blogs today, it only makes sense that you might say something online about your case as a way of venting your frustrations. Regardless of what you might be feeling at this time, you need to keep it off the Internet. Don't use your blog as a way to attack your ex and make them look bad. You are actually only making yourself look childish. A blog is only going to make the judge upset, especially when there is a good chance that the children could end up reading that blog. Act in the best interest of your children, not your emotions.
If you follow the tips above, you can prevent adding additional problems to your already troublesome case. Keep your personal feelings to yourself. Don't put them on display online for everyone to see. A divorce attorney can help to point you in the right direction of how you should proceed with your case.Share

When I began the divorce process, I knew that I wanted to change my name back to my maiden name. I no longer wanted to be associated with the family name of the man that I was divorcing. The problem was, I have three kids that all had their father's name. I wanted to know if I would be able to change their last names to my maiden name rather than having them carry that family's name for the rest of their lives. I found out a lot about what it would take and began working to create this blog to help other women wanting to do the same thing.
