Should I consult with an attorney before filing for divorce?

When an individual feels as though their marriage isn’t working out anymore and that they may be happier if they weren’t married, they are likely contemplating divorce. Of course, the decision to end a marriage and file for divorce is never an easy one, especially if the couple has children together or have been married for a very long time. At some point, the individual contemplating divorce may want to meet with an experienced divorce attorney who can help them determine what the next best step is for them.

At the initial consultation with a divorce attorney, the attorney may ask the individual a few questions about their marriage and their family life. This can help the attorney determine what type of divorce may be best, what to expect in the divorce, among many other things. This is also a good time for the person contemplating divorce to truly get an idea of what they are about to get themselves into and get a better idea of whether it is the best choice for their family. They can ask questions about child custody, child support, spousal support, and the division of assets. An attorney can also give them an idea as to what their options are for methods of alternative dispute resolution.
