Divorcing Mom Tip #4

Divorcing Mom Tip #4: Don’t participate in Text Wars. This can be a tough one, but a simple text can come back to haunt you later. If you lose your temper and send a nasty message telling your soon to be ex exactly what you think of him… trust us, everyone will receive a copy of it later in court and you will be held accountable for it. You may feel justified, because after all, he has inflicted pain and suffering upon you. But you will have to explain yourself on the stand and it will not paint you in a good light. If he is texting you, trying to goad you into a response, or harassing you, try not to respond, no matter how difficult it is. Document his attempts, and be ready to submit them to the court. By showing his bad behavior, and how you did not take the bait, you will appear as the mature party in the matter, and that will help your case.
