3 Things To Tell Your Divorce Attorney

Getting a divorce, wanted or not, is not easy. You have to have an attorney to help make the process easier. When you see your attorney, you need to talk to them and tell them what is happening so they can help you get your divorce. You need to work with them and not against them. So, what should you tell your lawyer?


If you signed a prenuptial agreement or agreed to one verbally, you need to let your attorney know as soon as possible. Bring a copy of your prenup so that your attorney knows what they are working with. You should also bring any other information you have that is related to that prenup, including emails, text messages, and voicemails, if you still have them. The more information you have about the prenup, the better off your attorney will be when it comes to getting your settlement. 


You should also tell your attorney about all your assets, even those you want to keep hidden. Those hidden assets have a way of making themselves known, and you can get into trouble if you do hide them. If there is something that you want to have protected, talk to your attorney about that particular asset and how you can protect it legally and within the framework of the divorce laws in your state. The best way to tell your attorney about your assets is to write a list down and then give that to your attorney. That way, they have something they can refer to. 

All Relevant Details

Your lawyer needs to know all the relevant details about your marriage and divorce. It doesn't matter if they make you look bad or not; you need to tell your attorney. If you don't tell them the details that make you look bad, those details could come out while you are in front of the judge and bite you in your fundament. That could affect your divorce settlement or custody agreement, so tell your lawyer the good, the bad, and the ugly. In your divorce, surprises are bad. 

If you are getting a divorce, you need an attorney to help you with your case. You also need to give them as much information as possible. You need to tell them things, and your attorney may ask questions that seem odd but are designed to draw more information out of you. The more info your attorney has, the better they can help you.
