Divorce "Tip of the Day:" More About Trusting Your Divorce Attorney

In the last post, we discussed ways in which the attorney-client relationship is like a friendship. In this post, I want to emphasize the importance of your trusting and telling your divorce lawyer everything about you and your case! And that means confiding in your divorce attorney about bad things which might be harmful to your divorce case, too!

No divorce attorney wants to be blind-sided in the courtroom by evidence against you which is presented by your worthless spouse, "Sluggo." So, tell your divorce lawyer everything -- the good, the bad and the ugly! For example, if you have openly confided in your own divorce lawyer about your poor judgment in signing up with a dating website, (while you are still married), then you and your attorney can be prepared to explain or rebut any false allegations of cheating made against you.

If you cannot tell your divorce lawyer everything, then maybe you have retained the wrong lawyer. And if you don't tell him or her everything, then be prepared to accept the consequences!
