What Should I Bring to My First Divorce Consultation?
When people first come to my office, they always want to know what do I need to bring with me. If you’ve been served with a summons, it’s always helpful for me to see that summons. If your case is ongoing and there have been some pleadings filed, I like to see those pleadings. I like to know what the prior orders are. I like to know where the case stands. If there’s an upcoming court appearance, it helps me to see that documentation to know where the case is from the court’s perspective.
Otherwise, when people first come to me they’re coming in for a free initial consultation. More than anything I just want to have a conversation. I want to get to know you. I want to get to know what the facts and circumstances are in your case, what your needs are, what I can do to help you. If you come in at that first appearance with me and don’t have paperwork with you, that’s fine. That paperwork can be gathered after the fact. What’s most important for an initial consultation is just to come in, sit down, and then talk about what the steps are going to be moving forward.
