Every divorce is unique. The best way you can assist your attorney is to remember that your divorce will be different from your neighbor or family member’s. To help your attorney serve you best be open and honest with him or her. Be sure to:

  • Gather important documents including:
  • W2’s, 1099’s, and pay stubs
  • Bank statements
  • Tax returns from the last 3 years
  • Credit card bills
  • Car titles
  • Credit report
  • Unpaid bills
  • Childcare expense receipts or statements
  • When leaving a voicemail message for your attorney identify yourself, leave a call back number and a detailed explanation about why you are calling.
  • Write down your questions so you will remember to ask them.
  • Keep scheduled appointments and be on time. Call in advance to reschedule if necessary.

Your attorney’s time is valuable. The better prepared you are the easier it is for him or her to help you through the divorce process.

Remember that your attorney specializes in law not social work or therapy. Divorce is stressful and emotional. If you have problems coping seeking professional help could be beneficial. Your attorney can refer you to agencies that can help you.
