How Do You Prepare to Meet with a Divorce Lawyer for the First Time?
Before meeting with the attorney, the prospective client should consider the questions that he/she wants to be certain to ask the attorney. It is a good idea to write those questions down in advance of the meeting. Beyond that, it is my experience that someone who is interested in meeting with an attorney to discuss the potential ending of her or his marriage wants to find out about the various legal processes available to end a marriage, as well as the practical manner in which the parties may be able to go about trying to agree upon the issues incident to the ending of the marriage. In addition, I believe most people in that circumstance want to learn a little about the basic legal principles that apply in determining how the issues incident to the ending of the marriage may be decided.
