How to prepare for your divorce appointment

Congratulations! You've taken the first hard step in finding out what your legal options are in a divorce! While going into a divorce consultation can be stressful, it's important to remember that your attorney does this every day, usually multiple times, so will not be judging you. Being truthful is important so the attorney can best assist you. It's also important to remember that some things we think may be true about the divorce process may not be the case, so ask questions if you're unsure!

While it isn't required, below are some questions that would be helpful to know the answers to for your initial consultation. If you don't have the answers, that's okay too!

  • Has a case already been filed? If so, make sure you send copies of the paperwork to our office before your appointment!

  • What is your marriage date (when were you married)?

  • Do you have any children? What are their ages?

  • Are you separated? If so, when?

  • What is your yearly income? What is your spouse's yearly income?

  • Do either of you have any retirement or investment accounts?

  • Do either of you own a house? If so, how much is owed and what is it worth? Was it bought before the marriage or during? Who's name is on the deed/loan?

  • Do you have any debt of the marriage?

  • What vehicles do you have and is there any money owed on the vehicle(s)?

Your attorney will use this information to analyze your situation and discuss your options with you. If you have any questions, make sure you write them down ahead of time so you don't forget! While divorce is certainly stressful, our office attempts to make the process as efficient as possible. It's important to remember that divorce is like the dissolving of a business, the business of marriage. While your attorney can assist with the legal aspects of this case, it's important to have another professional on the emotional side as well if needed with a counselor or therapist!
