Crystal Ball: Post Divorce

I’m Attorney Jonna Spilbor with your 60 Second Legal Lowdown. Negotiating your divorce oftentimes requires an ability to see well into the future. These tips will help ensure the days after divorce are downright rosy.

One, if the words “I just want out” is your approach to the divorce process, place your hand on your attorney’s desk and allow him or her to whack it with a ballpeen hammer. This technique will remind you that making decisions in haste, hurts.

Two, putting a so-called SUNY Cap on your college tuition obligation is common practice. But, what happens when your little geniuses get into Harvard and one parent can’t or won’t split the bill? Plan ahead.

And three, even though you’re the best thing since sliced bread and no human could ever run faster, jump higher or drive a better car pool, your ex will eventually fill the void of your wonderfulness with someone else who will become part of your kids’ lives. Get used to it. If the new partner earns your children’s respect, try taking the pins out of the voodoo doll.
