Jersey City-Hudson County Divorce-“You Get More With Honey Than Vinegar”
Posted on Aug 2, 2015 by attorney Santo Artusa
This guide is about different strategies used in divorce and family law cases in the Jersey City, Hudson County area of New Jersey. The strategy in this guide is about not being too aggressive and trying to find a middle ground to reach a resolution without frequent court dates and time.
Do this or Else
The Do this or Else strategy can automatically place someone on the defensive and with that, a vicious attack can ensue causing more grief and hardship. Starting a case with a civil attitude is usually the best course of action for people in family law situations. Usually but not always.
Knowing What is Important and What is Not
Telling your lawyer what is the most important part of your case helps your attorney focus in on the more critical aspects of your case. If you do not have a target, it can be very hard to achieve a goal.
Tell your Lawyer Everything
Be honest with your lawyer. Your lawyer needs to know the most important information about your case and leaving important information out will only lead to problems in the future.
Think of the Big Picture
Do not get bogged down with minor setbacks or negativity between you and your partner. Focus on the big picture and keep moving forward. Your attorney can help you do this.
Always be on time to court hearings, meetings, and any court ordered activity.
Showing the Court respect, showing your lawyer respect, will only help your case. If you need to speak to your lawyer during a case, ask for time to speak with your lawyer outside and/or give your lawyer notes about what is bothering you. Do not lose control in court and respect all court staff and the Judge at all times.
