THE DO'sDO be reasonable and cooperate as much as possible with your soon-to-be-ex. Reasonable compromise yields quicker and easier results in divorce cases.
DO support your children through this process. It's even tougher on them than on you. Don't make them pick sides.
DO let your spouse know when and where you will spend time with your kids while you work out permanent custody arrangements. Your spouse might think you've made a run for the border -- and if your soon-to-be-ex has to ask the police to track you down, that won't look good during custody or visitation hearings.
DO fully disclose all your assets and property. A court can throw out a divorce decree based on financial deception, putting you back in court years after you thought everything was final.
DO ask your attorney if anything doesn't make sense. Your attorney works for you, and should help you understand every part of the divorce process.
