In any situation, you can set yourself up for failure if you have unrealistic expectations. This is especially true in marriage and divorce. For example, at your wedding you may see all the world through rose colored glasses. Years later, you can hardly remember your wedding date or anniversary.
It is common knowledge that relationships, marriage, partnerships, take work, nurturing, respect. Over the years, this fades and communication problems grow before you can even recognize it is happening.
In divorces, the process can be disappointing too. Unrealistic expectations regarding alimony amounts, cooperation between divorcing parents, or the effectiveness of your attorney can cause problems you never would have anitcipated. In talking to your divorce lawyer, it is important to discuss realistic outcomes regarding living arrangements, shared parental responsibility, division of marital assets and debts, interaction between the former partners and the children.
There is much to do and if clients have unrealistic expectations, it just makes the divorce process that much more difficult.
