Preparation for going through a divorce is key. It is very important that you try to get as much documentation as you can in terms of assets and liabilities, understanding what you have and what you owe or what you have or you don’t have is a very important and empowering part of preparing for a divorce. There’s also a Case Information Statement which is a very detailed budget that the court requires the litigants to fill out, but it is also something that we as attorneys use as a tool in a settlement. It is a detailed accounting of all of your income information, all of your assets, all of your liabilities, what your budget is, and it is broken down in a very detailed manner and it is very purposeful in that because we want to make sure that we understand the full financial picture, because the best way we can help you is understanding what your needs are and what your budget is and what you have and what needs to be resolved. So, filling out those documents with our assistance it is something that – the more thorough you are, – the better prepared you will be to move forward with your family law issues.
