What You Should Tell Your Lawyer When Filing for Divorce in Florida

Filing for divorce without an attorney puts you at a distinct disadvantage, especially if your spouse has already “lawyered up”. An experienced divorce lawyer can protect your rights and protect your best interests.

However, to ensure your attorney is fully equipped to represent you, you must provide him or her with as much information as possible about your marriage and the events leading up to your divorce.

This includes:

By providing your lawyer with detailed information about your marriage and separation, you can greatly increase your chances of resolving your divorce case without conflict.

Review divorce-related issues

Prior to meeting with your divorce lawyer, you should create a list of divorce-related issues you would like to discuss. For example, if you have children, you should ask about child custody (parental responsibility), parenting rights, child support, and visitation (time-sharing). Other issues you should be concerned with are alimony, division of property and assets, division of debt, and mediation. Keep in mind that an initial meeting with a Florida divorce attorney is your opportunity to share important information, ask questions, and start the next phase of your life.
