How to Prepare for a Divorce
The Three Types of Divorce
Prior to your consultation, consider which type of divorce is best for you. The three types of divorce are contested, uncontested and amicable.
If you and your spouse are unable to agree on factors such as sharing debt, paying alimony or whether custody of children should be shared, then a contested divorce is likely the method to resolution in your case.
In an uncontested divorce, both parties have agreed upon the terms of the divorce in advance and simply need the assistance of a skilled divorce attorney to correctly file the paperwork. Terms that need to be fully agreed upon (if applicable) include:
- Asset Division
- Debt Division
- Child Custody
- Child Support
An amicable divorce is a low-conflict divorce that is handled out of court.
When you come in for your initial consultation, you do not need to bring anything with you. However, feel free to bring any documents that you believe are important to your divorce case including tax returns, credit card or bank statements, emails and written documents.
Let us shepherd you through this complicated and unpredictable legal process including alimony and child support using tactful negotiation to ultimately arrive at a lasting and binding resolution. That said, if it is not possible to reach an agreement out of court, we are prepared to go to trial and present your case.
