The Broncos have won Super Bowl 50, and fans throughout Denver will be celebrating for weeks to come. Many other individuals, however, are returning to the reality of their divorce. In this blog, our Denver divorce attorney takes a look at five football-themed divorce tips that can actually help you see a quicker, less contentious, and less expensive end to your divorce.

1. Don’t Commit Any Bad Fouls
In any divorce, you’ll want to make sure you don’t make any bad mistakes that could negatively impact the outcome of your case. It is important to listen to your attorney, and make smart, educated decisions when necessary. It is also important to avoid making emotionally-charged decisions, as these often come back to haunt you in the long run.
2. Trust Your Coach’s Playcalling
By “coach,” we are of course referring to your Denver divorce attorney. As the “quarterback” of your divorce, you will ultimately be making the important decisions. A good attorney, however, can help you by advising you as to the best course of action, and making sure your interests are protected. Furthering the analogy, they can also work with a team of “assistant coaches,” such as forensic accountant, who can lend their own specialized expertise to your case.
3. Take What The Defense Gives You
In football, teams will often make adjustments to their strategy during the game to make their team perform more effectively and efficiently. In an uncontested divorce, you may need to compromise with your spouse in much the same way. While you should never sacrifice your rights, a divorce involving compromise will usually yield a better end result for both parties.
4. Don’t Deflate The Ball!
After the New England Patriots were caught under-inflating footballs at their home games, quarterback Tom Brady was essentially punished (however ineffectively) for hiding evidence of his involvement. Likewise, hiding assets in a divorce will come back to haunt you. Be honest and up front with the judge in your case, and you will likely enjoy a more favorable resolution to your divorce.
5. Get Ready to Make Another Run
We aren’t saying you should get ready for another divorce – instead, you should get ready for your new life ahead. Divorce really can be a fresh start, particularly when you have a healthy attitude. It is never an easy process, but you can prepare for the future by relying on your team of friends, family, and a therapist or counselor.
