If you are facing a divorce, you may feel overwhelmed. With more than 40 years of experience in family law, Goldstein Law Offices knows how matters related to divorce often unfold and can offer unmatched guidance and support during this challenging time. Let us help you lay the proper groundwork for a successful outcome.
Stop, Look And Listen
When it becomes painfully obvious that your marriage is over, you need to stop, look and listen before starting divorce proceedings.
- Stop harmful actions: End the fruitless arguments, stop needless spending and quit making assumptions about the divorce process and possible results.
- Look around: Begin gathering financial information related to the marital estate and look for anything out of the ordinary. Be on the lookout for any statements or mail advertisements for financial institutions outside of your normal banking locations.
- Listen: It is nearly impossible to make any headway when spouses and their attorneys continue to talk over one another to be heard. Allow them to speak their piece and use it to your advantage.
Doing Your Homework To Understand Your Own Case
You did not reach the decision to end your marriage lightly, and the same consideration should be given to your goals for life after divorce. While your lawyer can help you understand your rights and obligations, only you can identify your best possible outcome.
Taking the time to think about your long-term goals and conveying that information to your attorney at the onset of your divorce will make the process far easier. Once we understand what you want to achieve, we can help you build a case that supports those objectives.
