What to Expect at Your First Meeting
Our San Diego Family Law Attorneys Are Here to Help
In the first meeting with our San Diego family law attorneys at Moore, Schulman & Moore, APC, it is helpful to have a list of questions written down and bring any documentation you have that is relevant to your case. People often become emotional and forget about important issues that they wanted to discuss during their initial family law consultation; having questions written down will help you remember.
Being knowledgeable and bringing documentation about your family income and assets can be helpful information for the attorney. We can help you answer questions about possible child and spousal support. The more detailed information you can provide about your finances in the initial consultation, the more productive it will be. Your circumstances will drive the various topics you talk about in the initial consultation and what actions, if any, you will take. For instance, if you are facing an emergency situation where your spouse or partner is draining bank accounts, then you may need to be prepared to take action to get immediate protection from the court.
By the end of the consultation you should have a better understanding of the process and what your options are. You will likely leave with assignments that will help the attorney better assess your current situation from your finances to child custody. Our attorneys are here to empower you with information. We encourage you to ask as many questions as possible. San Diego's Family Law Experts™ understand the challenges that can go along with a divorce, child custody and other family law issues. We are here to give you the best support and representation possible.
