Divorce Do’s

  1. Be honest with your attorney. You’re protected by the attorney/client privilege.

  2. When your attorney requests information or documents from you, respond quickly and make sure you’ve given him all his asked for. Help him, help you.

  3. Make a list of all property you (and your spouse) own.

  4. Gather financial documents. (Tax returns, bank statements, securities account information, corporate records, partnership agreements, real estate transaction documents, etc.)

  5. List all the activities you participate in with your children.

  6. Make a monthly budget for your household.

Divorce Don’ts

  1. Do not involve your children in the divorce.

  2. Do not argue with your spouse. Your attorney will do the fighting for you.

  3. Do not speak negatively about your spouse to or near your children.

  4. Unless directed by your attorney, do not change the locks to your home.

  5. Divorcing your spouse is an emotionally charged process. Try not to get overly emotional around your children: Their sense of insecurity is at stake.

  6. Do not deny your spouse access to the children, unless your attorney has advised you otherwise. Or, there is a compelling reason to do so (i.e. domestic violence, abuse, etc.)
