Always read and respond to legal papers within designated deadlines otherwise judgment can be entered against you. Make sure there is open communication between your attorney and yourself and always respond to your attorney’s calls and emails. Do not make drastic changes to shared bank accounts, credit cards, insurance plans, or pension plans. Do not use your children as pawns or to deliver messages between you and your spouse. Always take time to read through documents carefully and completely as it is easy to skip over important sections mistakenly.
