He knows how to prepare you for divorce court. He knows the arguments the other side will make – and so should you –before you have to deal with the court or even hire a divorce attorney.

One of the most important of your early decisions about your divorce case is the choice of an attorney. You must find an attorney you like and trust, one that is experienced in your type of case. (Jack has written a guide to divorce that can help guide you in choosing your attorney.)

Once you have an attorney working with you on your case, there will be several things taking place right away. First, you will have a conference with your attorney and he or she will ask you some questions.

What is your story?

What happened to put you in front of a divorce attorney? The important points the attorney will be looking for are:

  • when you were married
  • how long you have been marriedwhat happened or did not happen during the marriage
  • your income and employment situation
  • why you are in the situation you are in
  • What are your concerns, questions and other issues?
  • What do you want to do? Leave the home? Relocate? What are your goals?
  • What is your financial situation? Do you know what accounts you do or don’t have? Do you have a list of your assets and liabilities?

You will need to provide your attorney with information to fill out legal forms, help him get your “pleadings” in order (A pleading is a statement filed with the court establishing issues to be decided) and truthfully disclose your assets and liabilities.

You will outline what you want and why as well as estimate anticipated expenses associated with your immediate requests, such as temporary custody, child support, payment of debts. These requests for temporary orders must be given careful attention because they will stand throughout the divorce process.

As your court appearance approaches, you and your attorney will work together to create one or more proposals for equitable division of all marital assets and liabilities.

The day you go to court, your attorney will confer with the other side and negotiate with them, reporting back to you from time to time. Jack estimates that most cases—over 90% settle the day of trial.

In the event your case can not be resolved without going into the court room, you will be able to remain calm because you have been prepared in advance by working with your attorney every step of the way.

Bringing your divorce to a successful conclusion may not be easy as there is “No Easy Way” but Jack Carney-DeBord will get you across that finish line with your fair share.
