CARY, N.C. -- NCSingleParent.com newsletter editor Debbie Johnson
recently interviewed Steve Monks, a family law attorney with The
Monks Law Firm. The interview, which provides a wealth of valuable
information for anyone facing the trauma of a divorce, is available
in its entirety on NCSingleParent.com
Monks, who also assists with the NCSingleParent.com "Ask An Attorney"
forum, said, "A divorce is one of the most traumatic situations with
which anyone can be faced. Anyone who is going through a divorce
should take the time to get their facts together; this will help them
avoid potentially costly mistakes."
More often than not all parties involved in a divorce want it to be
amicable, but circumstances often make that difficult. Monks
provides divorcing spouses with tips for avoiding common mistakes, as
well as suggestions to make the process as painless as possible and
keep the divorce as agreeable as possible. He emphasizes the
importance of all parties being honest with their attorneys.
Additional subjects covered during the interview include dating
during separation, avoiding large purchases, talking to an attorney
before negotiating with a spouse, being cordial throughout the
process, leaving children out of all litigation, and how to deal with
counseling and medical insurance during separation. He also
recommends that if someone has interests in the marital residence
that he or she should not leave until negotiations have been settled.
Monks goes into greater detail when discussing the special cases of
domestic violence. He explains how the courts address these issues
and the immediate needs regarding safety of the spouse and children
involved. He also warns against the frivolous use of this as a
measure to expedite a divorce.
