Spouse being petty? Here's what to do if they won't negotiate

If you're going through a difficult divorce in Texas, then you need to know that you're not alone. There are many people who are able to help you through this trying time so that you know what to expect and how to move forward.

One of the biggest issues people have during divorce is a spouse who doesn't want to negotiate or work together. This ends up dragging out a divorce for many months or years, making the entire situation more complicated than it needs to be.

You don't have to let that happen in your case. You can pursue alternative dispute resolution options, like mediation or arbitration, or you can seek to have a judge put an end to your dispute in court.

What should you do if your spouse won't negotiate?

If they really won't negotiate, then your job is going to be to build a strong case against them. You'll want to have documentation of their unwillingness to work together. You'll also want copies of chats or texts that show the way they treat you or interact with you. No judge will be happy to see any spouse who is deliberately dragging out a divorce or being petty to harm their soon-to-be ex.

Your attorney will work closely with you to resolve your case, so you can move on to bigger and better things in your life. Your attorney will help you prepare your case so that you can seek the assets you want and get the most out of your divorce. The right help will help protect your finances.
