When should I retain counsel for a divorce?


The sooner you obtain good legal advice, the more likely it is that you will achieve a good outcome. Often, when one party procrastinates in retaining counsel, tempers flare and the tension – and ultimately the financial and psychological cost of the divorce – escalates! Being well informed will help you to stay calm, and to prepare for the outcome you deserve. Even if you decide to wait on the filing for divorce, it is important to obtain the important information you need, and to find a lawyer that you trust, so you are ready when the need arises.
