Personal property should be inventoried as well. Make a list of the major items in the home: furniture, electronics, art, jewelry, appliances and contents of any safe(s) that you and your spouse own.
4) Copy documents
Tax filings, bank statements, statements from retirement accounts, and mortgage documents are just a few of the types of documents that are helpful for an attorney to be able to have at the outset of the case. If there are files on the computer that you believe to be relevant make copies and save them to a USB flash drive.
5) Information on the children
Where do your kid(s) go to school? What sort of extracurricular activities are they involved in? Do they have any "special needs" where they need to attend doctor's appointments or take medication on a regular basis? Begin to think about these subjects prior to going to see an attorney so that you can discuss your plan with an attorney. Parties will typically agree to one party being able to designate the primary residence of the kid(s) while the other can visit them with varying degrees of frequency. It is a best case scenario when parties can agree to an arrangement whereby both are able to parent and be present for the children. However, when this is not possible it is critical to let your attorney know of your situation and your desired outcome as far as the children are concerned.
Come prepared to ask your attorney questions about the process. I will typically initiate the "question session" during any meeting with a client but if you have prepared questions to ask it makes the discussion more fruitful and productive. The length of time of a divorce, details about selling a home after a divorce is finalized, visitation concerns and community property are examples of questions that clients will ask with frequency.
Preparing a list of questions and pertinent information can be the basis of a strong attorney-client relationship. The attorneys with The Law Office of Bryan Fagan are well-equipped to help you organize your case in a way that will minimize stress and increase the chances of a successful and timely resolution.
