Debunking the most common legal myths on getting a divorce - Know the facts

Even though there are many financial benefits of leading a single life, divorce can often be a hard decision. Irrespective of the reason behind your end of relationship, the legal procedure of obtaining a divorce can always be time-consuming, confusing and expensive. Sadly enough, there are too many myths which can bar you from safeguarding yourself and your needs and this usually makes a decision worse. The trick is to identifying such myths so that you can steer clear from them and avoid making divorce less painful and complicated.

It’s vital for you to remember that all divorces are unique and while one couple might not find it necessary to seek help of a divorce lawyer, someone else may take it as a necessity. Talk to a qualified legal attorney but before you take such steps, stop believing in the common divorce law myths. Check out the facts.

Myth #1: You have to achieve a separation before divorce

Fact: The idea which says that you require going through a lawful separation first before obtaining a divorce is common but it is untrue at the same time. There are no such requirements which necessitate you and your spouse to live separately so that you both could file a divorce. There are few states where legal separations are possible but that don’t make them a requirement. So, stop believing in this myth if you wish to take the right decision.

Myth #2: Your spouse’s attorney will blow a hole in your wallet

Fact: Divorce lawyers often receive calls from furious spouses who have been continuously mistreated that they are looking for an attorney who would ruin the other spouse in the divorce case. But this is not what the divorce process is all about. Financial and property settlements are a portion of each divorce and how to divide the debts and assets is also at the heart of divorce laws. The states have different rules though the divorce is unique and such laws are introduced to ensure that the divorces are fair enough.

Myth #3: The court will penalize either you or your spouse for cheating

Fact: It is a common thing that divorce lawyers get their clients to relate everything that they went through in their marriage. They seek a detail of every little interaction, deception, lie and all the factors which lead to the breakup of the nuptial bond. When you’re a victim of infidelity, it hurts and then you soon want justice. But expecting that the court will punish you for being a disloyal spouse is incorrect. The court is not there to punish you for your behavior; rather it is there to make sure that both spouses in the relation can end in a reasonable and fair manner.

Therefore, if you’re wondering about the myths associated with divorce, take into account the above ones and start believing in the facts. Don’t let the myths bar you from making a right decision.
