Have you come to learn that your spouse is an incessant liar? This situation is seen in many Louisiana divorces, and it can make marriage dissolution more difficult than you imagined, riddling it with conflict and tension.
We know these circumstances can be enormously stressful, leaving you feeling like the future is bleak. But there are things that you can do to make the process smoother and better position yourself for the outcome that you want.
What you can do to prepare for your divorce
You should be prepared when going into your divorce, regardless of the circumstances. But if your spouse lies all the time, then you need to double your efforts.
Here are some things that you can do to hopefully make your divorce a little easier:
- Anticipate lies, so that you can work to get out ahead of them.
- Write down what your spouse says about important issues, so that you can easily refer back to them if you need to.
- Gather evidence that you can use to contradict your spouse, whether they be financial records, witness statements, or mental health records.
- Minimize contact with your spouse, so that you can avoid conflict and unnecessary stress.
- When you do have contact with your spouse, try not to take their lies personally. Instead, recognize that your spouse has what very well may be a mental health issue.
- Find a way to let your spouse “win” on some issues, so that they are satisfied and are more likely to give where you need them to. Just make sure that you’re strategic here, so that you’re not giving away too much.
