To make your consultation as productive as possible, we've got a few tips:
1. Don't Agree to Any Demands or Sign Any Documents Prior to Consulting a Lawyer
If you’re dealing with a divorce or other similar legal issue, your spouse may be pressuring you to sign certain documents or agree to certain terms (such as moving out of your marital house). It’s crucial that you avoid signing any legally binding documents or making any binding agreements, particularly while tensions run high in the household.
Our family lawyers can help you understand the ramifications of complying with your spouse’s requests, so you make the right decision. Wait until you’ve consulted a family lawyer to sign any documents or agree to any terms or conditions laid out by your spouse.
2. Write Down Questions Ahead of Time
We’re committed to helping our clients understand the ins and outs of their case. We don’t just want to usher you through the process—we want you to feel confident that your case is being handled appropriately. Please write down any questions you have about your case or our law firm before contacting us for your initial consultation.
3. Gather Any Relevant Documents
If you have documents on-hand that pertain to your current case, such as a pre-nuptial agreement, please make a copy and send it to us ahead of time. We can help you understand how certain documents apply to your case so you can move forward with determination.
4. Make a List of Items You Think Are Important
Remember, we’re here to help you understand your case better. If there are any details about your current case (such as whether your partner has engaged in adulterous behavior, for example) that you think could affect how you proceed legally, please tell us.During the consultation, you’ll have full attorney-prospective client confidentiality, so nothing you tell us will leave the consultation. The more information you give us, the more we can help you moving forward.
5. Understand Your End-Goal
We understand that family law cases can be stressful and draining to deal with. It’s essential to think about your end-goal before calling us for your consultation. For example, if you or your spouse just filed for divorce and you have children under the age of 18, what do you want the child custody arrangement to look like? Do you want to push for sole custody, or would you like to navigate a mutually beneficial joint-custody agreement with your spouse?
Take some time and think about how aggressively you want to approach your case and what you want the end result to be. Be aware that how you choose to progress the case will likely have lasting emotional and legal impacts on your relationship with your spouse and any children involved in the case.
Understanding how you want to approach the case and what you want the outcome to look like will help our family law attorneys collaborate with you to achieve your desired results.
