7 Things That Just Aren’t True about the Divorce and the Legal System


It’s no surprise that, in a society that has been raised on a diet of cinematic court room dramas and reality TV, we tend to think we know what happens in a real live court room.

But, unless you have actually spent a lot of time in court yourself (which means you are either a judge, a lawyer, or someone with a boat load of legal problems), I can almost guarantee you that what you think happens in court, and what really happens in court are entirely different.

In this blog posting Karen Covey offers 7 things you may believe about divorce and the legal system that are not necessarily true:

  • You will get to tell the judge your story.

  • The judge will rule in your favor.

  • The court system is fast.

  • The court system is fair.

  • The judge can make your spouse stop doing stupid things.

  • When your spouse does something you don’t agree with, you can take him/her to court immediately.

  • If you go to court, you will win!
