1. Don’t Commit Any Bad Fouls
In any divorce, you’ll want to make sure you don’t make any
bad mistakes that could negatively impact the outcome of your case. It
is important to listen to your attorney, and make smart, educated decisions
when necessary. It is also important to avoid making emotionally-charged
decisions, as these often come back to haunt you in the long run.
2. Trust Your Coach’s Playcalling
By “coach,” we are of course referring to your Denver divorce
attorney. As the “quarterback” of your divorce, you will ultimately
be making the important decisions. A good attorney, however, can help
you by advising you as to the best course of action, and making sure your
interests are protected. Furthering the analogy, they can also work with
a team of “assistant coaches,” such as forensic accountant,
who can lend their own specialized expertise to your case.
3. Take What The Defense Gives You
In football, teams will often make adjustments to their strategy during
the game to make their team perform more effectively and efficiently.
In an uncontested divorce, you may need to compromise with your spouse
in much the same way. While you should never sacrifice your rights, a
divorce involving compromise will usually yield a better end result for
4. Don’t Deflate The Ball!
After the New England Patriots were caught under-inflating footballs at
their home games, quarterback Tom Brady was essentially punished (however
ineffectively) for hiding evidence of his involvement. Likewise, hiding
assets in a divorce will come back to haunt you. Be honest and up front
with the judge in your case, and you will likely enjoy a more favorable
resolution to your divorce.
5. Get Ready to Make Another Run
We aren’t saying you should get ready for another divorce –
instead, you should get ready for your new life ahead. Divorce really
can be a fresh start, particularly when you have a healthy attitude. It
is never an easy process, but you can prepare for the future by relying
on your team of friends, family, and a therapist or counselor.
