Preparing for divorce is just as important as anything else you do, whether it is settling or litigating the divorce. Good preparation generally assures a higher level of success in resolution of the issues of your case.
Examples of good preparation are making sure that you have gathered all documents, and recordings of your spouse. If your spouse is saying terrible things about you in front of your children, if your spouse is threatening you in some way, then getting a good audible recording is great preparation for trial. In fact trials are often avoided by having such good evidence because the other side will realize the futility of opposing your position.
Other kinds of preparation that are important include getting a good financial statement prepared. Something we call a “Statement of Net Worth” in divorce is important to prepare and prepare well, early in the case. That way, we can plan what financial objectives we should have for you and how best to achieve them.
