Understanding the Importance of a Consultation

It is a crucial step in building a strong attorney-client relationship and setting realistic expectations for your legal proceedings and regarding any marital assets.

Before the Consultation

Here’s what to prepare for before your initial consultation.

Gathering Necessary Documents

Before attending your free family law consultation, it’s crucial to gather all the relevant documents regarding your case.

This might include:

  • Financial records
  • Marriage certificates
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Wills
  • Other relevant documents

Gather anything you believe is related to your family situation, finances, marital assets and more.

Having these documents organised and readily available will allow your attorney to better understand the intricacies of your case and provide more accurate advice.

Listing Your Questions and Concerns

Prepare a list of questions and/or any concerns you want to address during the consultation.

Doing this simple step ensures that you cover all the key aspects of your case and get the information you need thus far.

Whether you have inquiries about parenting matters (child custody), the division of marital assets, or estate planning, having a comprehensive list will help you make the most of your time with the attorney.

Additionally, it can help ease any anxiety you may have about the consultation by providing a structured framework for the discussion.

During the Consultation

Let’s discuss how to gain as much out of the consultation as possible, so you can move forward.

Key Topics to Discuss

During your free family law consultation, certain key topics should be discussed to ensure a thorough understanding of your situation.

These may include:

  •     Family Law Matters: Discuss any issues related to divorce, parenting matters (child custody), spousal support, and visitation rights.
  •     Wills and Estate Planning: If applicable, delve into topics such as creating or updating a will, establishing trusts, and planning for the future.
  •     Legal Procedures and Timelines: Gain insight into the legal procedures involved in your case and understand the potential timelines for resolution.

Understanding Legal Advice and Next Steps

Your attorney will provide preliminary legal advice based on the information you’ve shared during the consultation.

You must try to listen as carefully as possible, absorb the information, ask questions, and seek clarification on any (and all) aspects that may be unclear.

Additionally, discuss the potential next steps in your case, including any immediate actions you may need to take.

Understanding the initial strategy and direction your case might take is crucial for informed decision-making.

After the Consultation

Here’s what to do beyond your free family law consultation…

Evaluating Your Options

After the consultation:

  1. Take some time to reflect on the information provided by your attorney.
  2.     Consider the legal advice given, potential outcomes, and any immediate actions recommended.
