If you have already moved out of the marital home, and the divorce papers are already filed, how do you communicate with your spouse?
It depends upon the circumstances. If you both have lawyers, let your lawyers do your talking. You don’t want to tell your spouse one thing while your the lawyers are discussing something else in trying to protect your rights.
If you do not have a lawyer yet, get one. Let your spouse go “naked” while you have someone who knows divorce law, and is on your side. It will then be up to your spouse to decide whether or not to retain an expert advisor to protect his/her interests.
Sometimes lawyers and courts allow parties to discuss ONLY the children and children’s issues between them. This keeps anger, animosity, vindictiveness out of the equation, and avoids mistakes in the divorce settlement terms.
