Putting Your Mind At Ease

Going through a divorce is one of the most difficult things a person can experience in their life. If you are considering filing for divorce, it is important to understand what to expect during the initial consultation with an attorney. In this blog post, we will discuss what to bring to your consultation and what you can expect from your lawyer.

What to Bring to a Consultation

There are certain things you should bring to the consultation in order to make the most of your time. First, bring any relevant paperwork – this might include financial documents or copies of communications with your spouse. It can be helpful to bring a timeline of events leading up to the divorce, as this will give your attorney a better understanding of your situation. You should also come prepared with questions for the attorney – this will help you get a sense of whether they’re the right fit for you.

What to Expect in a Consultation

During the consultation, your attorney will likely ask you about your goals for the divorce and what kind of outcome you’re hoping for. They’ll also ask about your spouse’s position on key issues like child custody and asset division. Be prepared to discuss any areas where you and your spouse disagree, as this will be important information for the attorney. At the end of the consultation, most attorneys will give you an overview of their divorce process and what you can expect going forward.
