If you’ve been bad: Apologize!
 Many people believe that you should never apologize if there is any chance of a legal action against you. The belief is that apologizing might be an admission of guilt and this could work against you in a trial. Maybe there is some truth to this as far as a trial is concerned. However, many times an apology will prevent any kind of legal action against you.

Judges and bitterness

There are few things more detrimental to a divorce proceeding than a very bitter spouse. Judges are experts at picking up the bitterness. Any motion or demand made by the bitter party will be viewed with distrust. Thus, it is very important in a divorce to have control of your emotions – if only to keep the judge on your side.
