R & R; Why Taking Some Time OFF is Critical for Your Health

Emotions can run high in Family Law.

 

A Family Law case; such as a divorce or child custody matter may well be the most difficult thing you have to deal with as an adult. It can be heart wrenching, gut wrenching, expensive and uncertain.

The worst of all is the uncertainty! The questions as to whether you are doing the right thing. Will the Judge see the truth? Are your children safe? It keeps your brain on “go” 24-7.  However, this around-the-clock, heightened sense also wears you out.

You cannot stay on high alert all the time. If you do, you will crash and burn.  What is the solution?  Hire the person right for you, follow their advice to the letter and do the right thing, every time. Then breath, relax and take the afternoon off. You’ve earned it.

Churchill Wisdom; On Advice

“In those days he was wiser than he is now; he used to frequently take my advice.”

-Winston Churchill

Following your attorney’s advice can be one of the more difficult aspects of divorce work, but you must.  I have previously blogged on How to Hire an attorney, Keeping Quiet when necessary, Annoying Client Traits, and Coping with the Stress of a family law matter.  One important and common theme to all of these is to listen and take the advice you are given.  It is no guaranty of a perfect case, but it increases the potential for a satisfactory result. (So long as the person giving the advice knows what they are talking about.)
