The Top 10 Mistakes People Make in Divorce Cases


1. Failure to Listen to Their Lawyer

You should never be afraid to tell your lawyer what you think about your case. But you should also never be afraid to follow your lawyer's advice.

All too often, people will refuse to listen to their lawyer. They refuse to accept the realities of their case and they refuse to acknowledge the law. While this can sometimes result in harm to that person's case, the more common outcome is higher attorney's fees. This is due to the fact that the lawyer simply has to do more work to protect their client's interests.
