5 Simple Strategies for Improving Your Odds of Winning Your Texas Divorce Case
A good lawyer can make a huge difference in your Texas divorce case. But a good lawyer can only go so far. The facts of your case matter, too, which means that much of the outcome is determined before you even hire your lawyer. It’s your lawyer’s job to present your case in as favorable a light as possible. It’s your job to present your attorney with a case that is winnable.
These five simple strategies can greatly improve your odds of prevailing in your Texas divorce:
- Document everything. Your word is worth very little, but evidence is worth a lot. Photos, email and chat logs, and phone recordings can all help your case. When you can’t record something, take diligent notes.
- Prove that you’re reliable. Your word is worth nothing if you show up late or are proven a liar in court. Show that you’re honest.
- Consider your case from the perspective of an outsider. Know that things must be explained in this way, and prepare to address any liabilities an outsider might notice.
- Behave as the person you want to be seen as. Good parents don’t curse at each other in court or threaten one another in front of their children. Be the bigger person, particularly when you’re in front of a judge or jury.
- Don’t focus on things that don’t matter. If your lawyer tells you something is irrelevant, it is. Your ex’s shopping habits, for example, probably have nothing to do with child custody—even if those habits were a sticking point in your marriage. Remain focused on the topics that really matter, and don’t distract the judge or jury with long rants, irrelevant details, or attempts to assassinate your ex’s character.
