Pre-Divorce Planning

Usually, when you meet with an attorney in our office, you have already tried counseling and worked on your marriage. Most parties who meet with us are ready to file. It is common to feel stressed about the divorce process, particularly if this is not your first.

Pre-Divorce Preparation

We know this process is never easy and can be worsened by an angry or spiteful spouse. However, the best way to approach a divorce is to be informed and prepared. Unfortunately, you may have no clue about your spouse’s finances, which is often the case in divorce. Therefore, you must identify what assets are in your name, your spouse’s name, or in both of your names, as well as establish and document your debts.

What Should I Do?

During the pendency of the divorce, here are some action items to consider;

  • Notify banks, credit card companies, and others that you are going through a divorce.  It may be necessary to close certain accounts.
  • Do not cut off utilities, cable, or stop paying ongoing bills. 
  • Do not dispose of or dissipate assets.
Hiring An Attorney

Hiring a divorce attorney is a crucial step in pre-divorce planning. From the beginning, developing a good rapport with your attorney and feeling comfortable with how your questions are answered is important. In addition, take time to meet the support team to determine your comfort level in communicating with them.

The initial discussion with your attorney should involve identifying strategies for filing for divorce. The right strategy has advantages and disadvantages, and your attorney can explain these to you. Come to the meeting prepared with questions and take notes throughout your conversation.
