Preparing for Divorce

Whether you have already decided you are leaving your spouse or are just thinking about it, meeting with one of our attorneys can be an important first step in making decisions that will impact your family for years to come. It is important in the first meeting to inform the attorney about your current situation. Have you already discussed a divorce or separation with your spouse? Have you moved out of your home? Your meeting is confidential so even if you are unsure as to whether you want a divorce, you can talk openly about where you are legally and emotionally. All attorney-client communications are protected, so you don't have to worry that your spouse will find out.

Other topics you may want to address with the attorney are the various options for ending your marriage outside of litigation. You may want to ask your attorney what might work best for your situation from the collaborative divorce process to mediation. The attorney can describe the steps involved in each option and the level of privacy that can go with those choices. Our attorneys work with a team of experts from financial planners to psychologist. It is important to remember the attorney cannot act as a financial advisor or a psychologist, but they can you refer you to trusted professionals.
