How To Prepare for a Consultation with Your Divorce Lawyer

Going through a divorce can be one of the most devastating and personally challenging experiences in life. The mental and emotional preparation required to make it through can feel overwhelming at times. This is why it is so important to be fully prepared before your appointment with the divorce lawyer.

How To Prepare for a Consultation with Your Divorce Lawyer

Choosing a Florida divorce attorney is an important decision if you are considering or entering a divorce. Mens family law is available for private assistance for every stage of this process. When emotions run high - it is even more important to work with someone you feel confident about working with.

When preparing for initial consultations with any divorce attorney, keep the following tips in mind:

  • Be Emotionally Prepared. A divorce is ending one of the most important personal relationships you have ever had. This affects every other personal relationship as well. Your attorney will need to discuss things that are extremely personal – feelings may arise that make you frustrated, sad or angry.  Prepare yourself to face these circumstances honestly when entering any consultation. This will make the process easier.
  • Keep Goals Under Consideration. Take time for considering what your ideal outcome for divorce might be. Consider if it is in your best interests or those of any involved children. The more honesty engaged with yourself and others - the more effective your discussion with your divorce attorney will be.
  • Come Prepared To Discuss Your Income. Gather the most income-related paperwork you can. This includes banking statements, property ownership information, pay stubs, tax returns and information about real estate or investments.  Your income and the income of your spouse play key roles in discussions of support or settlement.
  • Bring Your Legal Paperwork.  You might have a prenuptial agreement, a divorce summons, paperwork connected to personal protection orders - or a domestic violence case. Bring this with you when you come. Even if you are in the middle of changing lawyers - bring any paperwork from the divorce case to date. This includes copies of agreements or court orders.
