Mark Ashton, a partner in our Exton (Chester County), Pennsylvania office and the editor of our Pennsylvania Family Law Blog, wrote an excellent post entitled "DIVORCE 101: HOW TO SAVE LEGAL FEES & HOW TO WASTE YOUR OWN TIME.", on that blog.

There are two major themes of this post.  The first theme, similar to Jane Lessnar’s post recently linked to this blog, is that parents should put the children first and think about the children’s best interests as opposed ot the parent’s rigths or entitlements.

The second theme is to beware of the free advice you get from friends, family members and other third parties.  Sometimes this free advice costs more than legal fees.  Moreover, you are better serve relying on the advice of your divorce attorney who knows both the specifics of your family and the law.
