PLAN OUT STRATEGY AND GOALS FOR THE END OF YOUR CASE
This is part of my series on What To Do When You First Need To See A Matrimonial Attorney While looking toward the end of your case may seem premature in the beginning of a matrimonial case, I think it is important to narrow the issues at hand are and how you would like them resolved. Of course, legal issues such as alimony and child support will have to be determined based upon the income and related information that you give to any attorney who represents you. But surely you would know what you would like to happen at the end of the case with your children, for example, the marital residence that you live in, other assets and how you would like them to be divided. So the number one point about what to do before you go see a matrimonial attorney is think about what your goals are and organize your thoughts so that you have a clear and concise picture of how you would like to proceed.
