Pre-Divorce Guidance

What is Pre-Divorce Guidance?

Pre-divorce Guidance is the process of working with an attorney to prepare for your divorce and get the legal and practical advice you need to help you move forward.

If you know your marriage is ending, but you need more time to prepare before you are ready to start the divorce process, pre-divorce guidance allows you to get the legal advice you need to make fully informed decisions. By preparing now, you will save time, money, and stress in the long run.

The key to a successful divorce is preparation.
You don't have to prepare alone.

How Does Pre-Divorce Guidance Work?

The most effective way to approach a divorce is to understand how the divorce process works. This includes knowing what issues will need to be addressed and what divorce options may be available. By working with an experienced family law attorney who can provide you with ongoing advice before you start the divorce process, you will be ready to move forward with confidence when the time is right—without the devastating risks or surprises that come from making rash, uninformed decisions.

Pre-divorce guidance is tailored to fit your unique circumstances. By working with you to better understand your current situation and your goals for your divorce, your attorney can provide you with important information and services to help you be as prepared as possible to move forward.

Key Components of Pre-Divorce Guidance

  • Strategic Planning: Collaborate with our experienced legal team to develop a customized strategy tailored to your unique circumstances and goals.
  • Goal Setting: Clarify your objectives and priorities to ensure that your decisions align with your long-term vision for your future.
  • Divorce Process Selection: Explore the different divorce processes, such as mediation or collaborative divorce, understand their implications, and determine the approach that best suits your needs.
  • Financial Analysis: We will look at your family’s sources of income, expenses, assets and liabilities, and other financial issues that are important to be aware of during your divorce. If you do not know how to gather this information, we will advise you on that as well.
  • Helping you to advocate for yourself. You and your spouse may be having some discussions between yourselves related to how you plan to divorce, how to make things work financially, and how to divide time with the children when you are no longer living together. These are not easy discussions to have, but with pre-divorce guidance, you won’t have to do it alone. We will be there to counsel and coach you along the way so that you can raise and respond to concerns and questions in the most productive way possible and be your own best advocate.
  • Resource Referral: Every divorce decision has legal, financial, and emotional issues. During pre-divorce guidance, our attorneys will help you find any advisor you may need so that you can make fully informed decisions. We can speak with your existing advisors as well, including your financial advisor, therapist, or others who are already providing you with guidance during this transitional time.

What are the Benefits of Pre-Divorce Guidance?

Talking with a qualified divorce attorney can help you put your current circumstances in perspective and know what to expect if you move forward with divorce. Pre-divorce guidance offers various other benefits, including:

  • Reduced Stress and Uncertainty: By preparing in advance and understanding the divorce process, you can minimize stress and anxiety associated with divorce.
  • Better Decision-Making: Equipping yourself with the necessary knowledge and resources will help you make informed decisions that serve your best interests.
  • Smoother Process: Avoiding common problems and delays that can arise early in the process will help you lay a strong foundation that will allow the divorce to move forward more smoothly.
  • Improved Communication: Learning effective communication techniques will facilitate productive discussions and negotiations with your spouse and other parties.
