How to Prepare for Divorce
Divorce is a process. There are many steps and goal posts along the way. Often, clients feel best when they enter our office prepared for the proceedings that are to come. We recommend that you start by gathering financial documents to get a firm understanding of debt obligations and financial holdings, obtaining a copy of your credit report, speaking with our attorney about opening new accounts in your name only, and changing your will to void any benefits that can be procured from life insurance policies. The biggest fallout of divorce is most often financial. Clients who are prepared and organized are often able to tackle the proceedings with minimum impact. Our lawyer and support staff will work with you each step of the way to help you feel confident and secure in your decisions.
What to Expect
Each divorce is unique. The way it is approached will help to dictate the nature of the proceedings that follow. It is important to maintain amicability throughout the process if at all possible. This helps lawyers on both sides serve as better advocates and keeps the time in court brief. Remember that a divorce is often much bigger than the two married parties. Whole families merge during a marriage, so keeping the focus on family health and well-being is imperative.
