If you are thinking about getting divorced or have made that big decision, the attorneys at the Lauzon Paluch can help. We can explain the divorce process, answer your questions and provide you with the help you need.
Planning For Divorce
Some of the things you should do before you file for divorce include the following:
Collect bank statements, investment account statements and tax returns — Though at a later date, we can always file motions to obtain these, getting them in advance can save legal costs and provide us with important insights.
Think about how you are going to tell your children — This is such a sensitive and personal matter that we prefer not to provide specific guidance here. When you meet with us, we provide advice based on your situation and needs.
If you expect your spouse to react violently — You may want to plan a relocation to safe accommodations. If necessary, we can seek a restraining order on your behalf.
Reach out to family and friends — Some people going through divorce withdraw and turn inward. We recommend that you get closer to your family and re-engage with old friends. The support they provide can make a positive difference in your life.
Envision a better future for yourself and your children — Divorce is about the future, not the past. You want a divorce because you expect that life will be better once the divorce is final. Clear thinking about the future shape and direction of your life can smooth the path to a better life.
