Pre-Divorce Information Sheet

 

Where Do I Start?

The first step in the legal separation and divorce process is to assist you in the filing of initial petition for divorce. If contested, the opposing party must formally respond to the court and file an answer to the petition. As professional counsel, we will help you file your petition for divorce and also then walk you through the divorce process and what you will need to obtain, generate, and collect when you are getting ready for your divorce. For instance, we will assist and guide you through the process of preparing and obtaining the following:

  • The last three years of your tax returns
  • Financial documents
  • Full inventory of your home and assets (Pictures are worth a thousand words)

 

 

What Can I Expect?

With respect to timing, the process of divorce can vary depending on the complexity of the case.
However, the court is able to issue temporary orders during this process to help protect your rights and
come to temporary agreements regarding the use of child and custody rights, access and use of bank accounts and funds, and other protections to make sure you can keep on living your life.

 

After the parties have collected information from one another and compiled their financials as part of the formal discovery process, the parties will enter into discussions, sometimes facilitated through formal and structured mediation, to see if they can come to a mutual agreement between both parties. If no mutual agreement can be reached between the parties, the parties can go in front of the judge to decide and determine any final disputes.

 

Once the judge signs off on the divorce, the parties will be given a signed copy of the Divorce Decree
and Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law as your legal proof of divorce.
