What Does a Divorce Lawyer Do?
A divorce attorney is your partner and advocate throughout the divorce process. Whether you hire one right away or wait until your divorce is already in the works, your attorney gives you advice on what the law says, what’s likely to happen in court, and what you can expect during each step of the process.
Your divorce lawyer can help you:
- Get things in order to file an initial Complaint for Divorce.
- Respond to a Complaint from your spouse.
- Gather financial documents regarding property division.
- Respond to requests for information from your spouse’s attorney.
- Correspond with your spouse or your spouse’s attorney to decrease your need to be in direct contact.
- Determine what property is marital and what is non-marital.
