Divorce Consultations – Are You Prepared?

I spend a significant portion of my day providing initial divorce consultations. This is the most important time I will spend with a potential client. In these consultations, many of the people that come see me are understandably emotional and focused on the part of the relationship that led them to my office. More often than not, they do not know what to expect at the consultation and they are not fully prepared to discuss the entirety of their situation. Therefore, when I came across an article that appeared on the ABC News Utah website, it struck me that the article is a good primer for anyone considering a divorce or seeking a consultation.

The four main takeaways for a client to consider are:

  1. Learn about the attorney
  2. Cover the big topics
  3. Get an overview of your case and discuss if your goals are realistic
  4. Prepare/protect yourself

At divorce consultations, I ask many questions to learn the whole story so I can work with my client to protect his or her interests and to manage expectations. Likewise, I strategize with them to help achieve their goals. I know that those seeking or contemplating a divorce are stressed out. However, the more prepared they are, and we are, the better I will able to help them. Hopefully this will alleviate some of their worry and concern.
