Ask an Attorney - The First Steps of Divorce

Meeting with a lawyer to talk about a divorce can be one of the most stressful things that a person may do. Before you select a lawyer, you may want to consider how much the lawyer may charge to represent you in the divorce and how much experience the lawyer has in representing clients in their divorces. Before you see your lawyer, gather copies of your most recent bank, credit card, and retirement fund statements along with your last 6 months of pay stubs and your tax return. Be prepared to talk with your lawyer about what you want to get out of the divorce.
