Before you see your Florida divorce lawyer for the first time, there are some things that you can commit to writing that will help in the initial consultation.
You should start with a list of all marital and non-marital assets, debts and income for both you and your spouse. A history of your marriage would also be helpful. It should include the date and place of marriage, all of the jobs either of you has had (including dates), anything either has done which could be considered a sacrifice for the benefit of the marriage, any affairs, medical or psychological problems, ages and activities of your children (including what role each parent plays in their lives) and what your vocational and other plans are for the future.
If you have an appointment with an expert divorce lawyer and are able to provide this information at the first meeting, you will save time and money and get the most out of your visit.
