WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW OR DO BEFORE FILING FOR DIVORCE

1. SHUT DOWN YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA.  You may think it’s private—it is not.  If you expect to have any contested issues in your divorce, you must expect your spouse to use any information at his or her disposal to bolster your spouse’s case.  This could include what you consider to be private information from your Facebook or other social media. 

2. UNDERSTAND YOUR HOUSEHOLD FINANCES.  If there are any contested issues of property, debt or child support, the Court will require you to prepare a Domestic Relations Financial Affidavit.   If you expect to have any conflict over any of these issues, It is a good idea to go ahead and begin filling out the form   We would be happy to e-mail you a blank Excel Domestic Relations Financial Affidavit form, in case you want to begin work on it before your first consultation with an attorney.  Just e-mail us and we will send one to you.  For many people, the process of completing this form is illuminating.

If you have questions or would like an appointment, please click on Contact, above, and e-mail us.  You will receive a timely response.  Ms. Hardy and her staff are waiting to help you.
