How To Prepare For Your Meeting With A Family Law Attorney At Wolinetz | Horvath | Brown
Most importantly, we want you to feel at ease when you meet with us for the first time. We recognize that you are likely coming to us because you are dealing with a tough time in your life such as a divorce, a child custody issue or some other family law matter, and we want you to know that we are on your side. Our job is to get you through this, and we take that job seriously.
To make the most out of your first meeting with us, we encourage you to do as much preparation as you are comfortable doing. Certainly, we want you to be able to describe the situation and tell us about what you hope to accomplish with the help of our lawyers. To that end, you may want to make notes of some of the key events that have happened leading up to the current situation, and take the time to envision your ideal outcome. We want to make sure we understand your goals.
The first meeting is also a good time to ask us questions. Feel free to treat this like an interview. You are thinking about hiring us to work for you, so you have the right to get to know us and determine if we are a good fit for the job. Ask us about our experience. Ask us if we have handled cases like yours before and what sort of outcomes we have seen. Ask us about the challenges that might come up in your case and what we can do to overcome it. Ask us how we like to communicate with our clients.
What To Bring To Your First Meeting
This first meeting will still be fairly early in the process, but getting a head start is never a bad idea. You may want to start gathering up things like financial records if you are thinking about getting a divorce. That might include income documents like W-2s, bank statements or credit card statements. If you are coming to us with a child custody case or a child support case, bring the current orders if there are any in place. Essentially, any legal documents or evidence you may have related to the issue at hand may be helpful.
Keep in mind that if we have any specific requirements for documents or items we want you to bring to your first meeting, we will tell you.
