Planning For Divorce: What You Need To Do

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you start your pre-divorce planning:

  • Write down your questions: You will undoubtedly have many questions about the divorce process and what to expect as you go through the legal process. Write down your questions to discuss with your attorney during your initial consultation.
  • Gather financial paperwork: Gather information about income sources, tax returns, bank accounts, assets and debts, and other pertinent information. This information will be important when proceeding with your divorce, so it is advisable to start collecting it at the earliest stage possible. Also, make copies of these documents and store them in a safe place.
  • Consider your legal options: Many people are under the impression that divorce has to be difficult, adversarial and drawn-out. This is not always the case. Mediation is one option that allows couples to end a marriage through collaborative and cooperative means. There are other options as well that you can discuss with an attorney.
  • Choose your attorney carefully: The ending of a marriage is a major life change. A divorce will affect you personally, legally and financially. It is critical that you work with an attorney who you can trust to handle your most personal legal matters. Your attorney will be your partner as you go through the legal process. Lisa McKnight will help you through every step and help you realize your goals for the future. She has more than 24 years of experience helping people like you get through the divorce process.
