Divorce 101: What Do Men Need to Know About Divorce?

by | Mar 15, 2022 | SEO Articles

Nobody gets married expecting one day to be looking for a divorce lawyer in Austin.

Choosing the right divorce lawyer in Austin is a critical decision regardless of whether you or your partner have decided it is time to split.

But there are other important things to consider.

Five Practical Tips to Help You Through the Divorce Process:

  1. Divorce is seldom easy, but it can be the best choice if you are in an unhealthy or toxic relationship. 
  2. It’s just as difficult for a man to go through a divorce as a woman, yet fewer men than women have as many friends who will offer support. In fact, 15% of men say they have no close friends.
  3. Expect to go through a period of grief. Regardless of how long you’ve been together, ending a marriage is challenging and takes time to get over.
  4. Feelings of anger are normal but can also cover emotions of fear, sadness, and sorrow. Men may react to bitterness, sadness, and hurt and later regret quick decisions. Don’t move too fast. Wait until you consult your attorney.
  5. Don’t isolate yourself. A close friend can be priceless. Talking to a professional therapist can improve your well-being. 

Things to Know Before You Meet with a Divorce Attorney in Austin

Try to think about your divorce as a business negotiation. How would you prepare for an important meeting related to your career?

  1. Plan to negotiate in good faith. This term means that each party will make a sincere and honest attempt to agree. You will provide each other with information, records, and data that may apply to your case.
  2. Do not begin negotiations with your spouse before talking to a divorce attorney in Austin. Negotiations are sophisticated, you need a plan and the right person to execute the plan.
  1. Stay calm. Remember, if you have children, you may be co-parenting with this person for years to come. Look for someone with a strong family law practice to be your trusted advisor when deciding on a divorce lawyer in Austin.
  1. Again, just as you’ve found in business, remaining respectful is never wrong. Quick reactions can lead to regret. Focus on what you need to do to move on to your best life possible. At Lazar Law, we realize divorce is hard.
