If you’re like many people, you’ve been thinking about divorce for a while now. It’s a difficult and confusing idea, and you’re probably feeling like you’re going through this initial experience alone. But you don’t have to go it alone. In that space between admitting to yourself that you’re going to get a divorce and actually telling your spouse or a friend of your plans, it’s a good move to pick up the phone and call a lawyer for a simple consultation.
Why? First of all, a divorce consultation is completely confidential. Even if you decide against getting a divorce, no one outside that attorney’s office will ever know you were thinking about it. Second, understanding your rights, your financial position, and a host of other important considerations will help you make a much smarter decision.
Here’s a sample list of questions that attorneys at our Seattle and Bellevue family law firm offices often hear during initial consultations:
- When is the right time to divorce? Now? Later? Ever?
- When should I talk with my kids about this?
- Who will the kids live with? Is it better to wait until they are older?
- Where will I live? How can I live on one income? Will I have to support my spouse financially?
- What’s going to happen to our house?
- What are the financial ramifications?
- How can we afford two households?
- What should I be doing now to prepare?
- How do I do this safely?
