How to Act During a Divorce Case, Including in Court

Clients frequently forget that they are subject to scrutiny during the entire divorce process in a case. You will be in a much better position, if you follow some of these strategies:  

  1. Never speak to the opposing lawyer without your lawyer’s presence and permission.
  2. Never “cc” the opposing lawyer in emails or correspondence. All communications should come from your lawyer directly.
  3. Never show any emotion or attitude towards your opposition.
  4. Do not speak or react when the Judge is talking.
  5. Do not disclose any witnesses or strategy you may call, if your case proceeds to a hearing.
